Sectra to develop NATO version of eavesdrop-secure GSM phone.

NORDIC BUSINESS REPORT-27 March 2001-Sectra to develop NATO version of eavesdrop-secure GSM phone(C)1994-2001 M2 COMMUNICATIONS LTD

The Swedish high-tech IT and telecommunications developer Sectra AB has received a contract to develop a NATO version of its eavesdrop-secure GSM telephone Tiger.

Sectra was commissioned to begin the development of a national Norwegian version of the Tiger telephone in 1999, and the current contract only results in minor extensions in the development project. Series-level prototypes of NATO versions are consequently expected to be ready for delivery this summer.

"The new agreement with the Norwegian Armed Forces is strategically important for us since it opens the way for sales to the armed forces and authorities in the other NATO countries," said Per Unell, president of Sectra Communications AB. "It is a pleasure for us that we have concluded this deal after a long period of negotiations".

The international NATO Tiger will be marketed and sold by Sectra's co-operation partner, the Norwegian defence industry enterprise Kongsberg Defence Communications AS.
