As part of a programme of modernisation, His Highness Lt. Gen. Sheikh Saif Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, the Minister of Interior, commissioned worldwide research to find the most suitable solution to establish best practice for police communications. As a result the TETRA Committee was set up and visited a number of sites looking at best of breed communication networks, platforms and systems from some of the most technologically advanced police forces in the world. During that process, the Committee visited the UK Airwave Pilot site at Lancashire Constabulary.

Here they saw APD’s CORTEXTM in operational use - the first TETRA based Emergency Services Integrated Communications and Control System in the world.

Following on from the research undertaken by the TETRA Committee, EADS was chosen to provide a digital TETRA network and APD was selected to supply the Control Room, despatch, mobile data and vehicle location applications.
