EID has been awarded a contract worth $5.4 million to equip the Portuguese Navy’s Tejo-class coastal patrol vessels with integrated communication systems, the company announced on 1 August.
Under the terms of the contract, EID will supply radio equipment, integrated communications control systems (ICCS), engineering and logistic services.

This new contract demonstrates that the Portuguese Navy, one of our most important customers, is happy with our global, positive and responsive performance.’
