HYT and EADS Secure Networks (SN) have signed an official agreement to launch a strategic cooperation in the public security market in China. This comprehensive and in-depth strategic partnership encompasses the development of customized solutions based on the TETRA technology, the design and manufacture of TETRA terminals, as well as the development of modern applications. Under the agreement, both sides are committed to the joint design, manufacture and distribution of 350 MHz TETRA terminal products.

SN and HYT will also co-develop 350 MHz TETRA systems to provide a total solution for China’s public security users, which will be the first TETRA solution to be designed in China. For Chinese public security users, this cooperation will not only mean more affordable trunking communications but also a better chance for customized solutions.
