MELBOURNE, Fla., Jan. 25 (UPI) -- Trinidad and Tobago have contracted a U.S. company to provide a unified, national secure communications system for its military and public safety services.

The Harris Corp. said it will supply a Public Safety Access Point and 800 MHz P25 (Project 25) trunked radio system for the contract, which is worth $31 million.

"The Republic of Trinidad and Tobago selected Harris' P25 communication system because it gives us the capabilities we require and uniquely enables us to extend interoperable communications among our military and civilian emergency teams," said Glenn Shah, director of Communications Network, Ministry of National Security, Trinidad and Tobago Police Service.

"With the Harris solution, our first responders, the military and our government agencies will be able to use the latest in digital radio technology to efficiently communicate."

The fully interoperable system will seamlessly connect public safety and military personnel through the Harris' VIDA network and Falcon radios currently in use.
