Barrett Communications has secured a contract to supply the US-funded Counter Narcotics Global Threats program for a republic in Central Asia.
The contract includes a range of PRC-2090 HF manpacks and vehicle stations with tracking software. The HF systems will provide critical communications and tracking capabilities to forces, which will assist in securing their border and controlling illicit narcotics trafficking.
The rapidly changing operational environment of the client required a HF system that adapted quickly to mission requirements. The Barrett PRC-2090 is designed to be smoothly and easily interchangeable between vehicle and manpack configurations. This is achieved by the transceiver being cassette-loaded into the vehicle docking station for mobile use and returned to a manpack configuration for on-foot patrol.
Barrett Communications CEO Andrew Burt commented: “We are committed to providing products and solutions suited to our customer’s needs. Intuitive ease of use is paramount in operations such as these.”
