Communication and Security

COTEC range communications are diverse to meet the needs of the types of testing we perform, to ensure safety and resilience, and to meet the developing data recording and transfer needs of ourselves and our customers. Alongside traditional landline telephone communication across the site, we have a private, licensed radio channel for everyday internal communications and range safety, together with Airwave UK public safety communications.

COTEC recently installed a site-wide wireless broadband communication backbone that enables real time transfer of large-scale data and video around the site and back to the main network areas. The facility allows encrypted customer access to the internet and their own organisations, together with Voice Over IP (VOIP) facilities.

The backbone capability also includes a 24 hour reactive security CCTV system. Further site security is provided by an established 24 hour centrally monitored alarm system.
