Barrett Communications have signed a significant contract with an East African National Defence Force. The first phase of the contract involves the supply of PRC-2090 Tactical HF (High Frequency) radio communications systems, in MANPACK configurations.

The PRC-2090 is a rugged fully featured tactical HF transceiver solution delivering proven field deployable secure communications with un-paralleled reliability. 

The PRC-2090 MANPACKs will be used for both voice and data, via Barrett’s CLOVER modems. In country configuration, operator and maintenance training will be provided to enable the customer to be fully self-supporting.

This is a new end user for Barrett Communications and we are pleased that many years of work in this country has resulted in this significant award,” Greg O’Neill, Barrett Communications Managing Director, said.
