South Australian company Codan Radio Communications has partnered with the Bangladesh Army to modernise the force’s portable communications.
Bangladesh will purchase 200 Codan Patrol 2110M Manpacks in a multimillion-dollar deal, which will be deployed in post-disaster recovery efforts.
Codan Radio has also committed to provide in-country training and support for the Manpacks, saying it aims to "strengthen the relationship with the Bangladesh Army and continue to support military operations throughout the Asia-Pacific and African regions."
The 2110M Manpacks are described as "comfortable to carry, packed with easy-to-use features and ideal for all types of terrain and weather conditions, complying with the toughest environmental standards including MIL-STD-810F".
The transceiver and battery compartment are made from lightweight alloys and high-impact plastics, both capable of withstanding immersion to a depth of one-metre.

When combined with our complete range of accessories, Codan’s transceivers provide a wide range of advanced capabilities from voice communications to data, email, fax, chat, GPS tracking, security and interoperability.
