Tait radios to be deployed at UK's RAF bases

The contract, which includes 5000 secure digital portable radios and over 1500 mobiles, will be delivered over the next 15 months.

Tait Communications has been awarded a contract by Petards Group to provide radio equipment and services to be used by the UK’s Royal Air Force (RAF) at its bases.

The RAF is replacing its entire secure management radio equipment (SMRE) capability, which allows air traffic control (ATC) to direct the safe movement of vehicles and personnel on the airfield manoeuvring area.

The contract, which includes 5000 secure digital portable radios and over 1500 mobiles, deployed in vehicles, as fixed stations and man-portable tactical deployable radios, alongside secure digital infrastructure, will be delivered over the next 15 months.

The project will be managed through Tait Communication’s EMEA organisation, providing system build configuration, integration and deployment services direct to Petards.

“Safety and professionalism are core values for Ministry of Defence, and reliable communication plays a crucial role in the effectiveness of day-to-day operations for the National Defence”, said Hans van der Linde, MD at Tait EMEA.

“Tait is proud to be a member of Petards’ team in providing a critical communication solution that supports RAF in its mission to defend the UK and its interests, strengthen international peace and stability and be a force for good in the world.”
