The firm has been tapped to deliver mission-critical communication services to the German Navy.

Motorola Solutions has been awarded a €69.9 million ($112.8 million) contract by the Federal Office of Bundeswehr Equipment, Information Technology and In-Service Support (BAAINBw), which has tasked the firm with providing secure digital radio communications for 16 naval vessels and training platforms for the German Navy.

Specifically, the firm will deliver digital TETRA (Terrestrial Trunked Radio) networks on each of the 16 vessels and integrate the systems into the navy’s existing IT infrastructure.

The technology is designed to support onboard security teams responsible for the safety of crews at sea and the operational readiness of naval vessels by bolstering visibility of the real-time operational status of each of the naval platforms, while also enabling instant workgroup communications between teams using portable radios.

“Successful naval operations depend on planning, precision and trusted communications that are purposefully designed and proven to perform in these kinds of mission-critical operations,” Mark Schmidl, senior vice president at Motorola Solutions, said.

“We’re proud to extend our ongoing partnership with the German Armed Forces and we look forward to supporting the security, safety and success of the German Navy’s missions.”

The new TETRA digital radio system is expected to be interoperable with the communications networks of the German Armed Forces and all other German public safety organisations.
