Hereford-based GRC has partnered with Avanti on a UK Space Agency funded International Partnership Programme in Kenya.
As a key supplier to Avanti Satellite Communications, GRC will be supporting their delivery of the project – Satellite Enablement for Disaster Risk Reduction Kenya (SatDRR Kenya). Alongside the other partner businesses, the programme involves working closely with the Kenyan Ministry of Interior to deliver emergency communication solutions to areas of need when affected by conflict, famine, floods and disease outbreaks.
GRC will be providing equipment and its own locally manufactured SCYTALE system, along with engineers to install, integrate, train and support deployed and fixed locations. GRC Operations Director, Steve Slater, said: “This new contract for a local company highlights the positives a small business can bring to large scale projects. Our cost effectiveness, innovative products and ability to deliver to short timelines can make a significant difference to large contractors working on UK sponsored overseas contracts.”
