RELM Wireless receives order for KNG UHF radios
RELM Wireless has announced that it has received an international order for its P25 KNG UHF portable radios and related products. The order, worth approximately US$1.0 million, is from the company's Australian dealer, and the radios will be fielded in military bases by Australian Defence Industries.
RELM Wireless received an initial order for Australian Defence Industries in 2011, and the company expects the order to be fulfilled during the second quarter of 2012.
Association of Public-Safety Communications Officials (APCO) Project 25 requires interoperability among compliant equipment regardless of the manufacturer, and was established by the APCO and is approved by the US Department of Homeland Security. According to the company, the shift toward interoperability ‘gained momentum as a result of significant communications failures during emergency events’. RELM was one of the earliest manufacturers of P25-compliant products, and today remains a staunch supporter of the P25 standard.
