New Applications for Airbus Tactilon Dabat at CCW201717-05-2017
Airbus is demonstrating the Tactilon Dabat, a combined Android smartphone and Tetra radio, with a rigid security concept and public safety applications at the Critical Communications World 2017 in Hong Kong.
The Tactilon Dabat prevents unauthorised access, keeps any communications encrypted, protects users’ data and features new applications certified by Airbus. This makes the Tactilon Dabat a unique device for secure group communications.
“Our customers are keen on the Tactilon Dabat because it facilitates their daily work and streamlines their mission-critical communications,” says Olivier Koczan, Head of Secure Land Communications at Airbus. “This smart and powerful solution enables them to carry out more and more tasks with a single device.” The public safety community and companies worldwide have expressed their interest, as the Tactilon Dabat will fit into their future communications infrastructures.
The security of regular smartphones is not sufficient for professional mission-critical use. The main security risks are linked to applications and content in digital channels, such as websites. The Tactilon Dabat and its certified applications have been specifically designed to provide the required level of security.
The Tactilon Dabat will become the pivotal instrument for public safety in the coming years thanks to the new applications ecosystem, currently growing in the framework of Airbus’ application developer programme, SmarTWISP. It helps developers to invent secure applications addressing the various needs of mission-critical users.
Furthermore, the Tactilon Dabat allows instant group communications (push-to-talk and touch-to-message options), snapshots of critical moments with excellent front and rear cameras and live-stream videos to exchange data safely. To round off these functions, the device has outstanding voice capabilities and a durable battery, and can withstand the harshest conditions.
The Tactilon Dabat will be showcased with all its new applications at the Airbus stand C5 during the CCW 2017 in Hong Kong from 16 to 18 May 2017.
