The world’s largest airliner manufacturer Airbus and UAE-based communications technology integration and security solutions company Atlas Telecom has signed a strategic partnership agreement at ongoing IDEX 2021 to connect their local and global expertise as well as strengthen relations with public safety agencies in Abu Dhabi.

The partnership will pave the path for the integration of Airbus’ smart solutions namely, Tactilon Agnet, Everus Manpack and Tactilon Dabat into Atlas Telecom’s products for defense and security applications.

The Tactilon Agnet of Airbus brings terminal radio and smart device users together, enabling them to share real-time voice, data, video and location information. Embedded in Tactilon Agnet, the portable Everus Manpack LTE tactical bubble allows voice and video services and directly links users to the headquarters.

In addition, Airbus’ Tactilon Dabat device allows users to switch between Tetra or LTE (Long Term Evolution) network services, according to availability with the help of its modern hybrid roaming feature.

Under the agreement, Airbus will also provide the TW1m Tetra modem, which will unlock the capabilities of Atlas Telecom’s E-passport tracking device, an advanced compact and intelligent vessel tracker.
