FORT COLLINS, Colo., April 9 (UPI) -- Colorado communications company 308 Systems reports a growth in orders for its command and communications kits.
The growth is credited to new distribution agreements with overseas companies that give the company access to markets in Europe, the Middle East and the Indian sub-continent.
"Our new Swedish, Danish, United Kingdom, Indian, Egyptian and United Arab Emirates distributors represent the best of the best in deployable communications technologies," said Mark Lueker, director of Advanced Projects at 308 Systems. "These partnerships will significantly accelerate our existing presence and growth in the world market.
"We enjoy working closely with each distribution partner to customize systems relevant to their unique client deployment needs."
The products in demand are 308 System's TAC-PAK, NETPAK and SATPAK lines of rugged command/communications kits.
TAC-PAK is a battery powered, soldier portable system in a small case, featuring a computer, global positioning system mapping, and satellite teleconferencing. Other products provide similar capabilities.
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has deployed TAC-PAKS in Israel, Bosnia and Afghanistan.
