DAMM to Supply TETRA Network for Maldives
Wednesday, May 16, 2018 | Comments

DAMM secured a mission-critical communications system for the Maldives National Defence Force (MNDF). The TETRA network will cover more than 300 square kilometers and nearly 1,200 islands, grouped in 26 atolls.

The network will be used by coast guard, marine corps, special forces, service corps and corps of engineers personnel for mission-critical tasks such as security operations, rescue operations and border patrol.

The Republic of the Maldives is in the middle of the Indian Ocean and has a climate characterized by high heat and salty air. With the IP65-encapsulated TETRA base station, DAMM offers a system for this harsh, demanding environment.

Partner company Waves Group delivered the technology in close collaboration with DAMM. “Providing a future-proof and secure mission-critical system with a low total cost of ownership was key to our customer,” said James Samuel, CEO of Waves Group. “With its low weight and rugged design, the mast mountable base station offers easy installation as well as low operating expenses, and the easy remote management makes it ideal for an island country.”

The Maldives National Defence Force (MNDF) is responsible for defending the security and sovereignty of the Maldives. Because of the country’s location, many of the MNDF activities take place at sea, making their operations expensive and logistically challenging.
