Improved radio setup at a competitive price

Augmenting your existing radio setup with a Cobham Satcom solution can bring significant savings.

A sound investment

Augmenting your existing radio setup with a Cobham Satcom solution can bring significant savings.

networks with PRISM PTT+ from Cobham Satcom to add a layer of encryption and greatly increase coverage. In both cases, we can see significant CAPEX savings from not having to replace existing handsets, and not having to invest in building new digital radio infrastructure – but leveraging existing radio networks as well as LTE, and, optionally, satellite.
