M/A-COM awarded $2.1 million contract for networked radio communications

At the UTC Conference in Nashville, M/A-COM announced that it has been awarded a $2.1 million contract to provide networked radio communications for the Duck River Electric Membership Corporation, based in Shelbyville, Tennessee. A new radio system featuring M/A-COM’s Unified Network Architecture will provide seamless, area-wide coverage throughout the 8-site, 2,500 square mile service territory, allowing Duck River employees to move from site to site without losing communications.

The network-based system will provide complete interoperability between Duck River Electric and the various public safety organizations serving the service area; improving crisis response coordination between all parties, and ensuring the safety of workers and residents in the surrounding areas.

M/A-COM will install a conventional, P25IP UHF radio system that will offer trunked radio system capabilities district-by-district, regardless of location or origin of radio signal. M/A-COM’s solution will enable workers to communicate within their specific work groups as well as one-on-one, and the backbone of the system will support data transmissions to vehicles.
