Shenzhen/ Dubai/ Bad Münder, 27 April 2015 — Hytera introduces the intrinsically safe TETRA handheld radio PT790 Ex during the 360° conference in Dubai. This ATEX radio is certified with the highest level of intrinsic safety. The PT790 Ex is tailored to the specific needs of users e.g. in oil and gas industries, mining industries or fire brigades. Having the ATEX certification of highest grade, “ia”, the radio can be used in areas which contain an explosive atmosphere of air and flammable gases, vapors or mists permanently (Zone 0). Furthermore, the new Hytera radio is protected against dust and moisture according to protection class IP67 and meets the US military standard MIL-STD-810 F/G. To ensure the highest safety at work the PT790 Ex includes man down and lone worker functionalities. The integrated GNSS module collects positioning data via GPS, GLONASS and Beidou and can transmit these data to the control center for further evaluations. The PT790 Ex will be introduced in Dubai on 26th of April 2016. The radio will be launched in Europe during the CCW in Amsterdam, May 31st to June 2nd Press Contact Markus Oltmanns Ph.: +49 (0) 5042 998-232 Fax: +49 (0) 5042 998-105 E-Mail: markus.oltmanns@hytera.de

Cambridge, 18th April 2016 – Teltronic, part of the Sepura Group, has been selected to provide a complete communications solution for Brasilia Metro. Part of an ambitious project by Metrô-DF operator to modernise and expand the Brazilian capital’s transport network, the solution consists of Nebula TETRA infrastructure, a CeCo-TRANS control centre, RTP-300 on-board equipment, STP9000 hand-portable radios and SRG3900 mobile radios. The solution, which replaces the Metro’s aging analogue system, will improve coverage as well as enhance communications between drivers, station staff, the control centre and passengers. It will cover Line 1, which currently carries 160,000 passengers per day – a figure that is set to increase as a further five passenger stations are added under the expansion project. "We are confident that this TETRA system will optimise critical communications within the network, augmenting the security of both our passengers and our employees” said Daniela Diniz, Director of the Technical Board of Directors for Metrô-DF.  "With this project, we reaffirm our world-leading position in professional transport communications solutions," said Ricardo Floriani, Regional Manager for Teltronic Brazil. “This tailor-made solution leverages the power of TETRA technology to tackle Brasilia Metro’s daily operational challenges, making a vital contribution to the safe transportation of millions of passengers." Media contact:Rebecca Greenall, Sepura plc.Tel: +44 (0)1223 877202Mob: +44 (0)7920 788561rebecca.greenall@sepura.com

Airbus Defence and Space strongly contributes to European project SALUS on evolution of public safety communications networks Airbus Defence and Space has been a major contributor to the European research consortium SALUS, thanks to the company’s specific know-how in the Public Safety market, particularly in spectrum requirements and frequency allocations for mission-critical solutions. The project has been recognised by the professional mobile radio (PMR) industry and won in the “Best Evolution to Future Broadband” category at the International Critical Communications Awards 2016 (ICCA) in London at the end of February. The goal of SALUS is to design, implement and evaluate a next-generation communication network concept for Public Protection and Disaster Relief agencies (PPDR), setting the ground for future public safety communication networks used, for instance, by police or firefighters. Within the project’s framework, Airbus Defence and Space is providing a Tetrapol solution allowing voice interoperability with certain broadband systems at the final demonstration in summer 2016. “Shaping the future of LTE-based technology for Public Safety, we are proud of our skills in the field of mission-critical communications,” explains Olivier Koczan, Head of Secure Land Communications at Airbus Defence and Space. The company has been the leader of the SALUS ‘Economic and Business case analysis’ work package, and, as Olivier Koczan puts it, “provides specific knowledge of public safety users’ needs and distinctive experience in professional mobile radio networks on a nationwide scale”. SALUS is funded by the European Union, with a total budget of 4.8 million euros. Seventeen partners are involved in the project that started in 2013 and will be concluded by the end of this year. Among them are representatives of the PMR industry, such as Airbus Defence and Space, research institutions, universities, small and medium-sized enterprises, as well as end users. Contact:Anke Sturtzel + 33 1 6138 5330 anke.sturtzel@airbus.comKai Schlichtermann + 33 1 6138 5547 kai.schlichtermann@airbus.com
