Warwick Penrose, Director and Dean Dickson, Tactical and ISR Manager have just spent a week in the US finalising the Teaming arrangement with our Strategic partner for this market – ‘ Tactical Electronics’ (TE). TE has a long history with the US DOD, particularly the Special Forces Community, and other Federal and State Law Enforcement Agencies providing niche EOD and Tactical solutions . TE will utilise their relationships and existing contracts with these clients to assist with launching Scimitar Tactical into the US market. Warwick and Dean spent time in the US further developing the channel partner relationship, finalising integration of the platform with TE sensors, understanding US end user requirements, and training their key staff on the Scimitar Tactical Platform.
Scimitar Tactical has been developed by EPE in response to a capability gap identified by ADF. Scimitar Tactical is employed to capture, store, manipulate and fuse multi-source information, to provide users with a detailed, multiple-view record of events, allowing complex operational and training analysis, as well as for evidentiary collection. It provides a unique capability to seamlessly integrate multiple sensors into a readable timeline of events. Following delivery of the earlier version to ADF, EPE have further developed the product, which is now ready to launch into the US market.
EPE represents the full range of the TE capability into the Australian and New Zealand Market. Their capability fits very well into the solutions that EPE provides. They lead the market in what they do in their development and supply of innovative equipment and training solutions, which is something readily transferrable to our Australian Military and Law Enforcement counterparts.
EPE will be launching Scimitar Tactical to the US market at Modern Day Marine Conference to be held at Marine Corps Base, Quantico, Virginia from September 25 to 27 2012. EPE is a member of the Team Defence Australia contingent exhibiting at Modern Day Marine.
