Posted 11 April 2019 · Add Comment

Airbus provided secure communications technology for the recently concluded formula 1 Grand Prix in Bahrain.

 

The Bahrain International Circuit Organisation used the Kingdom of Bahrain’s extended Tetra network infrastructure to ensure a smooth organisation and secure the race.

“Events, such as Formula 1 races, draw massively people’s attention on the Arabian peninsula. To keep the Bahrain Grand Prix safe and well-organised, a Tetra system from Airbus was primordial,” said Selim Bouri, vice-president andhead of Middle East, North Africa and Asia-Pacific of Secure Land Communications at Airbus. “It is an honour to serve the organising committee of this Grand Prix with our technology each year.”
