Spectra Group expand into US with the opening of new Spectra Group (US) office in Fairfax County, VA

(5 October 2018 - Spectra Group) Spectra Group (UK) Ltd is an internationally renowned specialist provider of secure voice, data and satellite communications systems, specifically optimized for use in remote and challenging environments.

Following recent contract successes in the USA, particularly with their battle-winning SlingShot tactical communications system, Spectra Group (UK) Ltd will be establishing Spectra Group (US) Inc in new offices in Fairfax County in Oct 2018.

By establishing a permanent presence in the USA, Spectra Group will be able to guarantee closer product support to their existing partners in North America, as well as dedicated product and service support directly to the end-user. Spectra Group aspire to expand their already significant international sales into new sectors not currently covered by existing US partners; a particularly exciting development as, globally, the USA offers the largest Defense, Emergency Response and Homeland Security market.

Spectra’s SlingShot adds voice and data BLOS COTM (Beyond Line of Sight Communications On The Move) to in-service tactical VHF and UHF radios. In addition to standard voice and data C2, it can enable capabilities such as remote biometric analysis, fire mission planning, tracking and inter-agency operations. Man-portable or vehicle-borne, useable on the move, delivering flexible channel leasing and with minimal increase in training-burden, SlingShot redefines tactical communication capabilities.

Simon Davies, CEO of Spectra Group said: “Spectra is very excited to be able to announce the opening of an office in Fairfax County. This welcome expansion of our business profile will enable us to forge even closer links with our existing partners and end-users in North America, as well as looking ahead to develop wider markets in the region.”
