USA Offers Largest Defence, Emergency Response and Homeland Security Markets
Secure communications specialist Spectra Group will use AUSA in Washington 8-10 October to announce the opening of a US office in Fairfax Co., VA.
Following recent contract successes in the USA, particularly with its battle-winning SlingShot tactical communications system, the company will establish Spectra Group (US) Inc. in October. By establishing a permanent presence in the USA, Spectra will be able to guarantee closer product support to its existing partners in North America, as well as dedicated product and service support directly to the end-user. The company aspires to expand its already significant international sales into new sectors not currently covered by existing US partners; a particularly exciting development as, globally, the USA offers the largest defence, emergency response and homeland security market.
Spectra’s SlingShot tactical communications system adds voice and data Beyond Line of Sight Communications On The Move to in-service tactical VHF and UHF radios. In addition to standard voice and data command and control, it can enable capabilities such as remote biometric analysis, fire mission planning, tracking and inter-agency operations. Man-portable or vehicle-borne, useable on the move, delivering flexible channel leasing and with minimal increase in training burden, SlingShot redefines tactical communication capabilities.
“This welcome expansion of our business profile will enable us to forge even closer links with our existing partners and end-users in North America, as well as looking ahead to develop wider markets in the region,” observed Spectra Group CEO, Simon Davies.
