EID awarded Portuguese Army radio contract
Cohort company EID has been awarded an $8.54 million contract by the Portuguese Ministry of Defence (MoD) to provide radio systems for the Portuguese Army, the company announced on 10 July.
Deliveries of the software-defined digital multiband, multirole and multimode tactical PRC-525 radio systems will take place between 2017 and 2023.
With HF/VHF /UHF multiband and full IP capabilities, the PRC-525 has already entered service with Portuguese Army and Navy under a contract that completed in 2015.
The new radios will be integrated into the shelters of the army’s Tactical Communication and Information System, which is expected to be launched shortly.
António Marcos Lopes, MD, EID, said: ‘This new contract demonstrates the trust the Portuguese MoD has in EID’s knowledge, products and solutions. We are very honoured to be able to supply our army once again with the necessary tools to do their very best on the field.’
