Barrett Communications has won US$11.5 million contract from Bangladesh Ministry of Defence (MoD) for tactical radio communications equipment.
This order is for both High Frequency (HF) and Very High Frequency (VHF), in base station, vehicle and manpack configurations.
Over the past 15 years, the Bangladesh Army has maintained an annual procurement program with Barrett Communications.
This program includes both HF and VHF radio communication equipment in various configurations, in-country and Perth-based train-the-trainer training for radio operators, system enhancements and ongoing spare parts.
This contract award is part of the ongoing relationship between Barrett Communications, through their local partner Radiant Corporation (www.radiant-org.com), and the Bangladesh MoD.
Mr. Greg O'Neill, Managing Director of Barrett Communications said, "The long standing and successful relationship we have with the Bangladesh MoD must be credited to the strong relationship we have with Mr. S.A. Bahadur, Managing Director, and his team at Radiant Corporation.
“The Bangladesh MoD represents a significant part of our sales in the Asian region and we look forward to continuing this relationship well into the future." Neill added.
Barrett Communications is the specialist Australian designer and manufacturer of commercial and tactical HF and VHF radio communication systems.
