CHICAGO, IL (STL.News) Digitization is one of the highest priorities for the German Armed Forces. It will help to increase the efficiency of operations and safety for soldiers and civilian personnel. Secure and reliable voice communications and data access are central drivers for efficiency and responsiveness on any successful mission.
