Daniels Electronics Ltd. recently has been awarded $4.5 million in new LMR contracts. These awards, with government public- safety agencies are for the supply of digital public-safety radios using its latest generation of firmware based digital radio technology.

These orders for Daniels MT-4E P25 digital radio repeaters, the company’s latest generation of firmware based digital radio technology, will be used by Canadian and U.S. government agencies to expand and upgrade their radio networks to provide state of the art digital communications for the first line public safety responders as well as other government radio users. The equipment will replace older radio systems to ensure compliance with the FCC narrow banding mandate coming up in January 2013 that require all LMR radios to operate at more spectrally efficient 12.5 kHz bandwidths.
