Sepura TETRA radios selected by the Czech MoD are first to reach the Czech Republic

The Czech Ministry of Defence (MoD) is the first Czech authority to select TETRA for its communications needs. Sepura and Rohde & Schwarz (R&S), the German infrastructure provider, are the chosen TETRA suppliers.

The TETRA equipment will be deployed to a special task force unit of the Czech Air Force which will use the compact mobile TETRA system for ground communications. Sepura SRH3800 hand-held and SRM3500 mobile TETRA radios will be used by the unit which manages most aircraft and airfield activities.

Paul Hag, Sales Director for R&S said: “Our long-standing relationship with the Czech MoD has enabled us to understand their requirements and supply products that meet their specific needs. In particular, Sepura radios were chosen for their ease of use and for their ruggedness; vital features in the Air Force’s environment”.

Kenneth Hubner, Regional Sales Director for Sepura added: “Sepura and R&S are extremely proud to be the first TETRA suppliers selected by the Czech authorities. We hope that this test trial will positively influence more divisions of the Czech Armed Forces towards the adoption of TETRA in the coming months”.
