Tuesday, September 03, 2019 | Comments

Airbus provided secure communications technology to French security forces during the social-economical and political G7 Summit, which took place in the Southwestern coastal town of Biarritz, France, 24 – 26 August.

With the high security measures promised by Christophe Castaner, French Minister of the Interior, 13,200 police officers and gendarmes and more than 400 firefighters were involved in safeguarding the high-profile event. Airbus provided dedicated networks and terminals to the teams in charge of securing the G7 summit, protecting the government officials from all over the world taking part in the summit, the venue and its perimeter, and the people working on-site.

In addition to providing the necessary equipment and secure mission-critical communications technology through a dedicated network overlay deployed for this major event, Airbus is also a long-term provider of INPT, the nationwide radio communications network for the French public-safety officials. This network allows full interoperability between forces. Airbus is also a provider of the French gendarmerie’s secure communications network RUBIS, as well as portable material and other essential communications equipment for vehicles.
