Harris awarded USD31m Critical Communications System contract by Trinidad and Tobago Police Service
Jan 28, 2013 (M2 EQUITYBITES via COMTEX) --
Communications and information technology company Harris Corporation (NYSE:HRS) announced on Friday the award of a USD31m contract for a Public Safety Access Point (PSAP) and 800 MHz P25 (Project 25) trunked radio system for the Trinidad and Tobago Police Service.
Under the contract Harris will replace the existing hybrid public safety communications systems across both Caribbean islands with a single all-digital, robust and reliable PSAP and P25 system. The solution will support the 21st Century Policing Initiative underway.
This public safety solution will reportedly be a unified, national secure communications system that is fully interoperable and will seamlessly connect public safety and Armed Forces personnel through the Harris' VIDA network and Harris Falcon military radios currently in use.
Harris said that its VIDA network will efficiently utilise the country's existing UHF frequency and provide Trinidad and Tobago's first responders with increased radio coverage.
