STP8000 called in to action for military exercises
SAAB Training Systems, which develops advanced military training systems that simulate real combat scenarios, is to use the Sepura STP8000 TETRA radio in army training exercises.
The radio’s rugged construction, easy handling and outstanding sound quality, assists in a communications system that is both portable and flexible.
The STP8000 radio’s high transmitter power overcomes weaknesses in network coverage. This, together with very high audio output, provides exceptionally clear communications, even in environments where there is significant ambient noise such as those found in combat situations.
The radio is ideal on military exercises because it withstands heavy impact and has unparalleled water and dust resistance. It has a robust connection underneath protective clothing, via a remote speaker microphone. Furthermore, large and well-spaced keys assist gloved users, which can typically be the case in training exercises.
The radios are being supplied by Swedish Radio Supply, Sepura’s distribution partner in Sweden and a long-term partner of SAAB Training Systems.
TETRA solutions are replacing analogue system in communications equipment that is easily transportable between training zones, thanks to the Damm TetraFlex infrastructure system.
Tommy Andersson, Key Account Manager at Swedish Radio Supply, said: “The new radio is an ideal solution for use in a situation that requires the very highest performance. We have substantial experience in working with SAAB on projects in the military sector.”
Kenneth Hubner, Sepura’s Regional Director for Scandinavia, said: “This is another instance of Sepura and our STP8000 answering the needs of our customers. Indeed, the STP8000 offers substantial scope for military organisations.”
