Bangladesh MoD orders Barrett radios
The order covers Very High Frequency (VHF) and High Frequency (HF) radio equipment in manpack, vehicle and base station configurations for the Bangladesh Army.
Barrett Communications will provide Perth-based and in-country train-the-trainer training for radio operators, ongoing spare parts and system enhancements.
The contract is part of a relationship between Barrett and the Bangladesh MoD through the former's local partner Radiant Corporation.
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... 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.'
