RELM Wireless Corp. announced yesterday that various branches of the U.S. military have generated orders for the company totaling roughly $3.2 million, to be fulfilled during the fourth quarter of 2010. The orders, for both domestic and international deployment, include products covering VHF, UHF, and 800MHz frequencies, with $2.7 million for RELM’s new P25 trunked portable and mobile radios. P25 compliance is based upon the APCO Project 25 requirements for interoperability among compliant equipment, regardless of manufacturer, the result largely of communication issues experienced during 9/11 and Hurricane Katrina.
RELM President and CEO, David Storey, explained the significance of the new orders. “It is exciting to come out of the gate with substantial trunking orders almost immediately upon releasing our new trunked products. Equally important is our expanding footprint with the U.S. Military. These orders are from branches of the military with which we have not previously done business. We intend to make them believers in our extraordinary value and customer service. This serves as tangible evidence of the positive reputation and relationships we have forged. It is also a promising indicator that we are successfully broadening our addressable market with more products, frequencies and features. We plan to continue aggressive pursuit of this strategy, which we believe should yield more opportunities for growth.”
RELM Wireless, based in Melbourne, Florida, has produced high reliability communications equipment for over 60 years, for commercial, government, and safety worker applications, including the current KNG Series. The KNG Series is a highly sophisticated and robust compact radio, now available with P25 compliant Trunking. RELM Wireless products are manufactured and distributed under the BK Radio and RELM brand names.
