Radio interoperability device
Embedded encryption hardware provider Transcrypt International Inc. has introduced a box that allows first responders to communicate using different types of two-way radios. The Tactical Interoperability Kit operates as a repeater. Up to three different types of radios can be attached to the unit, including those operating in the UHF, VHF and 800-megahertz ranges most heavily used by police, medical and fire units.
The kit runs for $1,999. Transcrypt, a subsidiary of radio manufacturer EFJ Inc., Lincoln, Neb., is seeking partners to sell the product into the public safety community, according to Mike Kelley, general manager for Transcrypt.
