The partnership agreement gives SORRAC rights to resell ECS Data Links capabilities in the region, where there is growing demand for secure real-time data transfer from air to ground to protect the nation and events such as the 2024 Paris Olympic Games. This extends SPX Communications Technologies' existing relationship with SORRAC which provides defence and security teams with TCI’s Communications Intelligence (COMINT) capabilities.

By combining our proven technology with local expertise we're able to address challenges with the appropriate solution, a process based on listening and working collaboratively within the business, but also with customers and partners like SORRAC.”
