Airbus Defence and Space to provide welfare communications services to deployed German troops

Providing troops with easy access to telephone, email, the Internet, sports info, local news from their home city or region, and social networks is vital in maintaining morale.

The German Bundeswehr has awarded Airbus Defence and Space a contract for the delivery of Welfare Communications Services to deployed German troops.

‘Welfare Communications Services’ is the provision of a full range of telecommunications infrastructure and related services for deployed troops, enabling them to call their families and friends back home, to access the Internet and GSM networks, send and receive emails and video telephony.

Airbus Defence and Space has a decade of experience in delivering sophisticated Welfare Communications to both deployed British and French troops. This pan-European approach enables wide synergies to be developed, which ultimately ensures the German welfare services benefit from the highest possible quality and reliability.
