EADS, through subsidiary PlantCML, has been awarded a contract to expand the CORP25 digital, trunked land-mobile radio system in Cumberland County, Tenn. The expansion, which will take place in the third quarter of this year, will include the installation of a new Zetron Advanced Communication (Acom) Console System, as well as the addition of 25 P25 subscriber units.

CORP25 provides an open, standards-compliant digital, trunked radio system with interoperability to existing conventional VHF radio networks. The P25 network provides expanded and coordinated communications for its users, which include the sheriff’s department, two fire departments, the rescue squad, local correctional facility, emergency medical services and emergency management.

Acom is a fully digital switching and multiplexing system.
