  • Follow-up Tetrapol model in alignment with the performance of Tetrapol radio technology

  • New ergonomic features such as new welcome screen and fast swap battery

Cassidian has unveiled its brand new Tetrapol radio, called TPH900, during the CCW in Paris. It is a robust, hand-portable Tetrapol radio for mission-critical voice and data communications. This latest generation terminal from Cassidian is specially designed for easy and solid usability in the field. The TPH900 radio from Cassidian will provide Tetrapol users with the best feature set on the market.

End users of the previous P2G and TPH700 Tetrapol terminal models will be able to make an easy transition to this new model thanks to its new welcome screen, which combines quick access to communications with a simple display of key information. A compact design and large keys ensure comfortable handling, while the design of the battery, including a latch, makes it handy and easy to change.

Integrated GPS enables the deployment of very useful location applications. The radio can automatically transmit its location in the event of an emergency call or upon end user request through a dedicated shortcut key. For enhanced user safety, the TPH900 radio provides an advanced ‘lifeguard' solution, also known as a ‘man-down' alarm. If the radio stops moving or remains horizontal for too long, it triggers a local alert. If the user does not respond, the radio automatically activates an emergency call with optional GPS coordinates over the Tetrapol network.

The embedded Bluetooth 2.1 allows controlled access to a wide range of standard accessories, enabling end users to free themselves from wires for specific missions. The vibrating alert provides users with additional benefits, enabling discreet notification of incoming calls or messages and even complementing ring tones to ensure user alert in noisy environments.

All these advanced functionalities and features combined with high performance and protection against rain, dust and shock makes TPH900 a reliable communication tool for the most demanding operational duties.
