Airbus and Atlas Telecom, a UAE-based communications technology integration and security solutions company, signed a strategic partnership agreement at the ongoing IDEX 2021 to combine their local and global expertise and reinforce collaboration among public safety agencies in Abu Dhabi.
The cooperation will lead to the integration of Airbus’ Tactilon Agnet, Everus Manpack and Tactilon Dabat into Atlas Telecom’s solutions for defense and security applications. Tactilon Agnet brings terminal radio and smart device users together, allowing real-time sharing of voice, data, video and location information. Embedded in Tactilon Agnet, the portable Everus Manpack LTE tactical bubble enables voice and video services, and gives users a direct link to the headquarters.
In addition, Airbus’ Tactilon Dabat device allows users to switch between Tetra or LTE network services, according to availability, thanks to its state-of-the-art hybrid roaming feature. In the frame of the agreement, Airbus will also provide the TW1m Tetra modem, which will unlock the capabilities of Atlas Telecom’s E-passport tracking device, an advanced compact and intelligent vessel tracker.
“Atlas Telecom always emphasizes the need to provide a reliable and secure critical communication infrastructure for reinforced collaboration between security forces and personnel across sectors. Through our new partnership, we can further strengthen our capability to deliver secure and modern devices for efficient exchange of data, voice, and information,” Samer Jammoul, Managing Director of Atlas Telecom, explained.
“In the Middle East, where we have strong market presence, our collaboration with Emirati companies such as Atlas Telecom allows us to jointly deliver better products and services. It results in an engagement that brings economic benefits. This reflects our commitment to introduce technology-driven solutions to the region, especially in the UAE where we are witnessing a rapid upgrade of infrastructure and security as it bids to become a leader in the global security and safety industry,” added Selim Bouri, Vice President and Head of Region MEA & Asia Pacific of Secure Land Communications at Airbus.
