Communications interoperability for Federal, State, Local, and U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) agencies is a national priority. Existing solutions didn’t work at events like the Oklahoma City bombing, Hurricane Katrina, and 9/11. Radios were operating on different frequency bands, and first responders had to carry multiple radios to communicate with each other.
Thales Defense & Security, Inc. has leveraged our more than 12 years of Project 25 public safety experience with our unequaled software-defined radio technology base in the Department of Defense and, in 2008, introduced the Liberty Multiband Land Mobile Radio (LMR) to the market. The Liberty radio is a software-defined, portable LMR that enables emergency responders to communicate with partner agencies, regardless of radio frequency band.
Read about how DHS partnered with 14 agencies across the country to test the effectiveness of Multiband radios using the THALES Liberty.
