Iridium, Icom Partner for Push-to-Talk Radio Development - top government contractors - best government contracting eventJapan-based company Icom has partnered with Iridium Communications to develop a handheld radio technology that will use push-to-talk method to help users communicate.

The partnership intends for the device to support communications among first responders, military personnel, remote workers and nongovernmental organizations that operate in areas where ground infrastructure is limited, Iridium said Friday.

Both companies expect to introduce the radio product in 2019.

Iridium added it seeks to bring the communications firm’s PTT tools to Icom’s worldwide sales network.

Icom maintains a portfolio of land-mobile radios and will offer its first satellite-based PTT handheld device under the partnership as a licensed value-added manufacturer.
