The Government of the German Federal State of Saarland has announced the award of the contract for their entire fleet of 4,000 TETRA radios to Sepura’s partner in Germany, Selectric Nachrichten-Systeme GmbH.  Sepura’s radios will be supplied to all of the Police, Fire Brigades and Rescue Services in Saarland.

Patrik Schlicker, Project Manager for Saarland’s Ministry of the Interior, commented: “With one European-wide tender we have been able to complete successfully the procurement of TETRA radios for all public safety users in Saarland. After a thorough evaluation of all the bids received, we selected Sepura radios because of their superior price-performance.  We are confident that we will be providing our users with the best TETRA radios on the market today.”

Saarland chose Sepura’s STP hand-portable and SRG mobile gateway radios and became the first German state to select the new Sepura Colour Console (SCC) for the mobile radios.  The SCC has a large high resolution colour screen which allows the display of high quality photographs and maps and introduces three text mode sizes and a new ‘night mode’ which reduces glare — ideal when driving at night. In addition, it offers high levels of water and dust protection (reflected in its IP67 rating) which enable it to withstand submersion in water and make it ideal for installations on motorbikes and fire engines. Configuration and management of all TETRA radios will be carried out with Radio Manager, Sepura’s advanced client server operational support tool which allows users to connect to a number of Sepura TETRA terminals simultaneously.
