Airbus Defence and Space is releasing the Tactilon Dabat smart radio, said to be a big leap in Tetra evolution. It integrates a fully rugged smartphone and a complete Tetra handheld radio in one device. The Tactilon Dabat resists shocks, water and dust like any Tetra radio. It also offers the multipurpose buttons of Airbus Defence and Space’s other Tetra terminals, such as the emergency and push-to-talk buttons.
Olivier Koczan, head of secure land communications at Airbus Defence and Space said: "Tactilon Dabat is the latest result of our close cooperation with public safety organisations for over 30 years. Such organisations expect communication devices which incorporate mission-critical voice, video and data functions. They also want to use applications and share multimedia information. Tactilon Dabat is designed to combine this for professionals,"
Eric Davalo, head of strategy, solutions portfolio and engineering of secure land communications at Airbus Defence and Space says: " Tactilon Dabat is a completely new type of device. It combines the advantages of a rugged smartphone and a fully functioning Tetra radio. We believe that professionals appreciate it."
The Tactilon Dabat will be presented at the Airbus Defence and Space stand during the Critical Communications World (CCW) 2016 exhibition in Amsterdam from May 31 to June 2, 2016.
