Motorola Solutions acquired Barrett Communications. Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.

“Motorola Solutions and Barrett Communications are united in their purpose of delivering the vital communications that organizations around the world depend on to help further safety,” said Mark Schmidl, senior vice president, international sales, Motorola Solutions. “Barrett brings us a new portfolio of communications capabilities beyond traditional land mobile radio, allowing us to support highly specialized operations.”

Barrett Communications, which is based in Perth, Western Australia, designs high frequency (HF) and very high frequency (VHF) mission-critical radio communications, complementary to Motorola Solutions’ existing radio portfolio. This technology is designed to enable critical communications in any location without the need for infrastructure, making it ideal for supporting security and peacekeeping operations, as well as humanitarian response efforts during natural disasters.

"We are excited to join the Motorola Solutions team,” said Barrett CEO Andrew Burt. “We look forward to building upon Motorola Solutions’ industry-leading portfolio, extending critical voice communications to support essential operations, humanitarian work and disaster response and recovery.”
