Codan secures extensive US Forest Service order
Victoria, Canada – Codan Communications, 16 March 2016.
Codan Communications, a division of Codan Limited (ASX-CDA), has secured a $3.2M order from the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Forest Service to supply MT-4E repeater systems to all nine forest regions throughout the United States.
The USFS (United States Forest Service) uses Codan’s MT-4E rugged repeater systems in some of the harshest terrain and remotest locations within the country to ensure the maintenance of day-to-day operations and the safety of USFS personnel and co-operators. These systems also provide critical communications during emergency situations including wildfires and law enforcement.
Codan Communications’ Director of LMR Sales, Ben Pearce, emphasizes the importance of working with the USFS, “Our MT-4E repeater platform was developed specifically to operate in the harshest conditions to provide reliable communications for all situations, including emergencies and mission critical applications. This order only further demonstrates Codan’s commitment to one of our key niche markets and long-standing customers.”
The MT-4E technology is perfect for the needs of the U.S. Forest Service through its extremely robust and reliable operation, modular design and backwards compatibility with the existing USFS radio network.
