CHICAGO -- Motorola Solutions Tuesday said has been selected by the Federal Office of Bundeswehr Equipment, Information Technology and In-Service Support, to provide secure digital radio communications for 16 naval vessels and training platforms for the German Navy.
The contract, valued at $82.3 million, will deliver mission-critical communications to support onboard security teams who are responsible for the safety of crews at sea and the operational readiness of naval vessels, Motorola Solutions said.
Motorola Solutions soon will roll out digital radio networks on each of the 16 vessels and integrate the systems into the navy's existing IT infrastructure.
"Successful naval operations depend on planning, precision and trusted communications that are purposefully designed and proven to perform in these kinds of mission-critical operations," said Mark Schmidl, senior vice president international sales and services at Motorola Solutions. "We're proud to extend our ongoing partnership with the German Armed Forces and we look forward to supporting the security, safety and success of the German Navy's missions."
