WA company delivers VHF systems to overseas military

Perth’s Barrett Communications has completed a contract worth $7 million for tactical VHF equipment.

The equipment has been delivered to an unnamed Middle Eastern military force.

Barrett Communications said the new client has deployed the equipment as part of a planned modernisation of their existing military VHF systems.

The contract incorporated the full range of Barrett PRC-2080+ VHF equipment. The PRC-2080+ systems are designed for multi-role tactical military applications.

The contract also included the hand portable, manpack, mobile, base station and re-broadcast configuration. The Barrett PRC-2080+ system will provide secure voice and data communications over line of sight range.

Training was recently undertaken in-country ready for full deployment within the coming months.

Barrett Communications specialises in designing and manufacturing HF and VHF radio equipment for specialised, autonomous, medium and long distance radio communications. HF and VHF radio communication is "free to air"; having no recurring usage charges once the communications network has been installed.
