CirTran wins contract to develop next-generation SafetyNet RadioBridge
Apr 19, 2005
CirTran Corp. (OTC BB: CIRT) said it has been awarded a contract to develop the next-generation SafetyNet(TM) RadioBridge(TM).
The contract from Aegis Assessments Inc. (OTC BB: AGSI), of Scottsdale, Ariz., calls for CirTran to add features for enhanced performance in the SafetyNet RadioBridge, which interconnects incompatible radios, bridging them to provide radio interoperability at emergency sites in just minutes.
Shaher Hawatmeh, CirTran's chief operating officer, said the redesign will improve bridging of trunked and non-trunked radios, enhance sound quality in audio transmissions, and add internal storage for cables, headsets and other accessories.
"CirTran knows that the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) places a very high priority on communications interoperability for first responders," said Hawatmeh.
Project SAFECOM, the federal umbrella program managed by the DHS, oversees initiatives and projects pertaining to public safety communications and interoperability for approximately 50,000 public safety agencies in the United States, including 18,000 state and local law enforcement agencies, 26,000 fire departments, 6,000 emergency medical responders, and several thousand utility and infrastructure public agencies.
CirTran Chosen "to Ensure Quality and Continuity"
"CirTran was selected to redevelop and manufacture the SafetyNet RadioBridge for a variety of reasons," said Richard Reincke, president of Aegis Assessments.
"We wanted to ensure quality and continuity in the process, from design to manufacture, and then to high-volume manufacturing," Reincke said. "CirTran will redesign the product and begin building units. As manufacturing needs grow, CirTran offers a unique blend of quality and quantity, including the ability to build at its Salt Lake City facility or control a higher volume output through its CirTran-Asia subsidiary in China."
