German State Receives 50,000 TETRA Pagers from Airbus

Airbus delivered more than 50,000 TETRA pagers to the Hessian, Germany, fire brigades, emergency services and civil protection units.

The symbolic 50,000th pager was given to the fire department of the city of Bruchköbel. The majority of the volunteer and full-time mission forces in the state use the pager’s alarm via the critical communications system for public safety.

In 2012, Airbus won the public tender and developed the pager to enable rapid alerting of public-safety forces. Airbus also supplies the delivery system and programming for all equipment and accessories.

In the event of a fire or a serious accident, control centers can alert emergency services securely and reliably within a few seconds. Firefighters or forces of other organizations can immediately send feedback to the alert recipient when they agree to take over the job. The control centers have an overview of the available team in a short time span. In addition, mission operators can, if necessary, re-alert to ensure that the required number of helping hands is available. This shortens the response time and simplifies resource planning.

The two-way data transmission pager received certification from the Hessian Ministry of the Interior and Sport in 2015. Therefore, the device fully meets all the interoperability and safety requirements that the German Federal Agency for Public Safety Digital Radio (BDBOS). The delivery of the pagers began in 2016.
