Portuguese army to receive more PRC-525 tactical radios

4th September 2019 - 12:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


EID has been awarded a €16.7 million contract to supply its PRC-525 tactical radios and ancillary equipment to the Portuguese army. 

Deliveries from the Portuguese military communications technology company will start in 2019 and will go through to 2026, adding more of the force’s standard manpack and vehicular radio systems to its inventory. 

The software-based system supports HF, VHF and UHF ranges, and enables frequency hopping and a wide range of waveforms, offered for portable, vehicular and stationary use.

The contract also includes the supply of more systems and components manufactured by EID, including deployable base systems, power amplifiers for vehicular use, and antenna tuning units.

‘We're proud of the fact that our state-of-the-art communications systems already support and will contribute further to the fulfilment of the Portuguese army's national and international missions,’ António Marcos Lopes, EID’s managing director, said. 

‘This award further enhances EID's long-standing and successful partnership with the Portuguese ministry of defence to provide equipment for both land- and sea-based military applications.

‘With multiple frequency ranges, the PRC-525 tactical radio is a highly flexible capability, supporting a wide range of operational functions including interface with analogue and digital networks, and mobile stations for command and control systems.’
