CLARKSBURG, Md. – Thales Communications, Inc. announces that its Liberty Multiband Land Mobile Radio (LMR) has successfully completed Fire radio testing by the U.S. Department of Interior (DOI) Radio Technical Service Center (TSC) test lab and by the National Interagency Fire Center. Having previously received TSC approvals for Law Enforcement and Tiers 1, 2, and 3, the Liberty radio is now fully approved for sale to DOI. The Liberty LMR’s Project 25 Overthe-Air-Rekey has also been completed and successfully tested by TSC, adding capabilities for the Law Enforcement Tier.

The Liberty LMR is a software-defined radio solution that enables interoperability across all public safety bands (136-174, 380-520, 700, 800 MHz), linking government agencies and first responders with a single portable radio. It operates in Project 25 (P25) conventional, P25 trunked, and legacy analog modes with Output Feedback Data Encryption Standard (OFB DES) and Advanced Encryption Standard (AES). The radio is Mil Spec rugged and submersible to two meters. Other key features significant for DOI include Front Panel Programming, Zone Cloning, a AA Clamshell Battery for operation where power is not available, and Tone Picklists.
