Swedish Rescue Exercise Demonstrates Technology
Wednesday, October 09, 2019 | Comments

The Barents Rescue in September in Kiruna, Sweden, allowed public-safety services such as fire, police and health users from Finland, Sweden and Norway to practice real-life emergency situations and demonstrate the need for secure communications in mission-critical situations, along with interoperable cross-border cooperation.

Airbus provided technology and proved it possible as the coordination of the emergency operations, with all stakeholders, took place through the Rakel network operated by the Swedish civil contingencies agency for the stakeholder organizations in Sweden.

Airbus has participated in all three Finland-Sweden-Norway TETRA inter-system operability (ISI) events involving the corresponding Nordic TETRA operators in Finland, Sweden and Norway. In addition, the tri-network roaming functions have been verified between the Airbus TETRA networks.

Barents Rescue is a civil international crisis management exercise that was initiated and conducted in Sweden for the first time in 2001. The exercise aims to improve the provision of mutual assistance on behalf of public-safety organizations in the event of disasters or emergency situations.
