emergency.lu CONTRACT EXTENDED

The Luxembourg Government signed a new agreement with the Joint Undertaking (JU) between HITEC Luxembourg S.A. and SES TechCom S.A. - in partnership with Luxembourg Air Rescue - to extend the emergency.lu rapid response solution for a duration of six years.

The success of the emergency.lu system swayed the Directorate for Development Cooperation and Humanitarian Affairs of the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg to not only continue the service offering, but even to extend the system. As such the number of rapid deployment kits is being augmented by ten additional terminals. These devices are consisting of an inflatable antenna plus redesigned NoSaCo® Rapid terminals which are entirely manufactured in the Grand Duchy by HITEC Luxembourg. These devices are making up the field infrastructure in case of natural or manmade disaster which require immediate intervention.
