Texcel’s ability to go the extra mile in terms of improving original design concepts paid off when the company was asked to complete an automated test system that would meet Terrestrial Trunked Radio (TETRA) standards. This suite of open digital trunked radio standards is used by private mobile radio users, such as public safety organisations.
When an incumbent supplier dropped out of the frame, Texcel stepped in and saved the day for a major international marine radar manufacturer. Texcel’s initial quote for the manufacture of the company’s entire range of radar systems was agreed to be competitive and in line with the customer’s quality requirements.
In partnership with two leading specialist companies, Texcel developed a revolutionary undersea observatory power and control system for the Canadian part of the North-East Pacific Time-series Undersea Networked Experiment (NEPTUNE).
The infrastructure contract for the shore fed, high power, high bandwidth cabled ocean observatory system was issued by the University of Victoria, following a thorough selection process.
