Jeddah, KSA – 20 March 2023 – Airbus rolled out its mission-critical solutions in the 2023 Saudi Arabian Grand Prix as the motorsport spectacle’s official secure communication technology provider.
Deployed in the vital points of the Jeddah Corniche Circuit were Airbus TMR880i, THR880i, TH1N, and TH9 Tetra radios and RCS9500 Radio Dispatch Console. Providing secure collaboration and connectivity between organisers and security teams, the technologies were pivotal to safeguarding the people and the venue whilst guaranteeing seamless on-site race activities and operations.
Selim Bouri, Vice-president for Airbus Secure Land Communications in Africa, Asia and the Middle East said: “Clear, concise and secure communication is an important success factor of any event. To better respond to incidents, organising committees and security personnel on the ground must be connected at all times. Airbus has the expertise and capabilities to effectively address this need.”
“Our easy-to-use and highly reliable mobile Tetra radios are equipped with advanced features ideal for different activities, may these be small or large scale. In the region, several mega and popular events such as the recently concluded F1 race in Jeddah had benefited from our solutions. It was our honour to provide support to the organisers of the race as they worked towards safeguarding all participants and spectators present on the race circuit,” Bouri added.
