New SmarTWISP programme offers substantial incentives to app developers and radio communications solution providers once they become accredited members

Airbus creates new PMR application developer programme

Airbus Defence and Space has launched a new application developer programme called SmarTWISP aimed at the needs of professional mobile radio (PMR) users in particular. It focuses on the company’s latest radio, the Tactilon Dabat, a full TETRA radio built into a smartphone that works as a platform for apps.

The programme also incorporates other radio communications solutions from Airbus: the Tactilon Suite portfolio, and, especially, the multimedia group communication solution Tactilon Agnet. The latter interfaces with multiple applications to exchange professional information within groups.

Airbus said that app developers can easily become members of the new programme. Once developer companies have been registered as accredited members they can benefit directly from training sales channels, logistical help, marketing activities and new customers. SmarTWISP will thus provide Airbus accredited business partners with new opportunities.

“By leveraging developers’ ideas, we can better satisfy our customers’ demands. The new programme will also enable Tactilon Suite users to have the best apps,” said Olivier Koczan, Head of Secure Land Communications at Airbus Defence and Space. For instance, firefighters, police officers, rescue service workers and industry employees can improve the geolocalisation, object-recognition or mapping capabilities of their tools.

Recently, Airbus partnered up with the company Facewatch, which has now developed an application for the Tactilon Dabat. This helps convict criminals more easily by enabling both police officers on patrol and security personnel in enterprises to share public safety information in realtime, including photos and videos.
