Harris Corp. (NYSE: HRS) has won a $31 million contract to install a nationwide radio system for emergency responders in Trinidad and Tobago, Harris said Friday.

The company aims to have more than 6, 500 emergency responders in the military, law enforcement and government sectors connected to one interoperable system via Harris radios already in use.

“Trinidad and Tobago is connecting both public safety and Armed Forces first responders through a single technology solution, ” said Steve Marschilok, president of Harris’ public safety and professional communications.

Marschilok said the national government wants to coordinate tactical and public safety response through the system and have situational awareness, mapping and dispatch capabilities.

Glenn Shah, director of communications networks for Trinidad and Tobago’s national security ministry and police service, said both military and civilian emergency teams will use the Public Safety Access Point and Project 25 system.

The solution creates a flexible platform ready for the quick and easy addition of future equipment to meet operational requirements for the Ministry of National Security and other government agencies.

Harris will install a digital PSAP and P25 system on both islands for the project, which also aims to extend radio coverage and use existing ultra high frequency spectrum.
