Wireless technology vendor, Etherstack (ASX:ESK), will most likely be providing tactical communications equipment to the Australian Federal Police (AFP) in the near future. It’s announced, via the ASX, that it’s won a competitive tender process that enables it to supply these technologies to the local law enforcement organisation.
The AFP order was placed with Etherstack’s wholly owned subsidiary Auria Wireless.
The company mentioned, in a statement, that this marks the fourth order, in a span over 18 months, that the Commonwealth of Australia has placed to use solutions from Etherstack’s technology product line-up.
According to Etherstack, the equipment that will be supplied to the AFP will enable it to deploy ad-hoc highly secure communications networks in remote or isolated places where its officers may not normally have communications coverage.
Etherstack CEO, David Deacon, said it is encouraging for the company that front line law enforcement officers are seeing the benefits of its communications products and expects international uptake of its solutions in the near future.
“We are seeing increased international demand for our new products and we are expecting further sales with policing agencies in the US and Canada in coming months”, he added.
