Irving, TX — EF Johnson Technologies, Inc.

The task order calls for the company to provide its submersible Project 25 compliant radios and accessories to the DHS.

Jalbert, chairman and chief executive officer of EF Johnson Technologies. “The FIPS-compliant encryption algorithms provide the security that the customer requires.”
“This is the third order we have received from this DHS customer, and they have praised how responsive all levels of our organization have been throughout the fulfillment of the previous orders. We recently changed our tagline to ‘We Respond’ and this order further validates that tagline.” The company will ship the order in the third quarter, Jalbert added.
