Mission critical solutions from Airbus have been utilised for the 2023 Saudi Arabian Grand Prix.

Deployed at the vital points of the Jeddah Corniche Circuit were Airbus TMR880i, THR880i, TH1N and TH9 Tetra radios as well as the RCS9500 Radio Dispatch Console – all of which provided secure collaboration and connectivity between organisers and security teams.

These technologies were pivotal to safeguarding people and the venue whilst guaranteeing seamless on-site race activities and operations.

Selim Bouri, Vice President, 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.”
