The partnership will support the technology leader’s CommPac Radio that addresses communications in complex subterranean environments
Vital Alert (VA), global leader in the utilization of Very Low Frequency (VLF) and magnetic induction technologies, recently announced the establishment of a strategic relationship with Federal Resources (FR) for the distribution of their CommPac Radio terminal. VA’s CommPac provides infrastructure-free communications connectivity Through The Earth (TTE) / Through Barriers without the use of repeaters or wires as well as enables communications utilizing magnetic coupling to existing wires or electrical conductors.
VA has spent the last decade refining, configuring and productizing the CommPac terminal through participation in multiple user demonstrations and exercises; ultimately, improving the product to address difficulties faced while communicating in subterranean or Radio Frequency (RF) denied environments encountered by the military, public safety personnel, first responders and in industrial applications. The CommPac is compatible with existing radio technology utilized in these environments to provide seamless network connectivity ensuring primary and redundant communication capabilities.
FR is a worldwide, leading provider of quality solutions for warfighters and first responders with extensive presence and reach into market areas and existing customers where the CommPac Radio capability is critically applicable and needed. FR has paved the way in the service contract and manufacturing industry.
Michael Homer, CEO of VA, stated, “Leveraging FR’s reputation and distribution reach will expedite familiarizing military and first responders to the unique technical capability of our CommPac Radio and demonstrate how they can immediately employ this equipment to support operations in subterranean environments where traditional radio technology simply cannot function.”
“We are looking forward to sharing this lifesaving technology with our customers,” said Sid Sidebotham, Federal Resources’ Senior Vice President, MRO Market,. “The CommPac radio works in synergy with FR’s product offerings for the subterranean environment and will assist to ensure mission-sensitive information reaches the surface along with increasing a mission’s rate of success.”
