Barrett Communications has recently been awarded a multi-year contract by the Canadian Department of National Defence (DND) for Very High Frequency (VHF) radios, the Australian communications specialist announced on 6 November. This new contract follows on from the earlier contract awarded to Barrett in 2016.
The Barrett PRC-2080+ VHF radio is designed for multi-role military applications, providing rugged, reliable field-proven communications. The system is offered in hand-portable, manpack, vehicle, base and rebroadcast system configurations, giving flexibility for deployment in the field.
“We have many exciting developments and contracts coming from the Americas right now. We are pleased to have secured this contract demonstrating the confidence the Canadian DND has in Barrett communications equipment,” commented company CEO, Andrew Burt.
