  • In cooperation with ESG, a leading German company for security-relevant electronics and IT systems, Airbus Defence and Space can now offer the ‘TARANIS® Smart’ application for Tactilon Dabat radio devices
  • Tactilon Dabat and TARANIS® Smart make police work easier

Elancourt, 21 November 2016 – Together with the German company ESG, Airbus Defence and Space is launching a new application called TARANIS® Smart for the Tactilon Dabat, a handheld radio and smartphone in one device. Thanks to this application, police officers and rescue services will be able to monitor operations in real time during complex missions. End users can securely transfer data via LTE while still having all the mission-critical communications features of a Tetra terminal at their fingertips.

Olivier Koczan, Head of Secure Land Communications at Airbus Defence and Space, explains: “TARANIS® Smart and Tactilon Dabat are complementary in terms of technology. They will provide the police with new tools to optimise their coordination in any operation. In a time of increasing security threats, the police need the latest innovations.”

The TARANIS® Smart application shows the user their current location on a digital map, an overview of the units on the map and geo-referenced symbols on the map, chat and notifications. This enables police officers to communicate securely by sending videos, photos and data, whether they are on the scene or in control rooms. The app is easy to use in stress situations. TARANIS® Smart also helps train police for special operations or in analysing previous exercises.

Airbus Defence and Space and ESG are cooperating as part of the application developer programme SmarTWISP. This Airbus Defence and Space programme allows accredited companies to benefit directly from training, sales channels, logistical help, marketing activities and new customers.
