With the global situation becoming increasingly tense, the demand for professional radio systems and security measures is extremely strong due to the growing momentum of crisis management.

◼For the North American public safety market, service order backlog also increased along with an increase in system order backlog.

In the North American private market, the backlog of orders has been steadily eliminated thanks to the effect of production expansion at the Malaysian plant, and orders continue to be firm.
