Tadiran Communications received an order in the amount of $20.5 million from Israel's Ministry of Defense. This order is an add-on to an order valued at $19.6 million for the supply of next generation radio communications systems for use by the various branches of the Israel Defense Forces, which the company received on December 2005.
The radio systems are software definable (Software Defined Radio), among the most advanced of their kind, providing high-speed simultaneous voice and data communications capabilities and supporting multiple advanced communications protocols.
The ordered radio opens the way to 3rd generation wireless military communications, meeting the demands for advanced voice and high-speed data communications in the Network Centric Warfare environment thereby becoming an essential building block for the communications infrastructure of the modern, digital battlefield.

In October, the company announced a contract for the supply of the latest tactical communications equipment to a country in Africa, valued at $18 million.
