dBD Communications value Health and Safety and in 2009, we produced a brief on duplex communications required for Network Rail during trackside works.  Network Rail saw how this capability could reduce health and safety risks and in 2012 mandated the use of the products when controlling plant equipment.

We have since become specialised in short range wireless duplex communication systems.  With a significant share of the market place for UK rail infrastructure and an increasing demand in construction and civil markets.  Technology advancements are occurring in the airport ground handling sector with a variety of wireless communication solutions for Pushback, De-Icing, Engineering and Maintenance and Turnaround applications.

The wireless concept has many benefits against its wired counterpart, such as reduction in trip hazards, eliminating the risk of electrocution from being tethered to the aircraft, reducing costs surrounding damaged cables and allows free movement around the whole aircraft with a continuous open or momentary communication range of up to 500m with the remainder of the team, including the Flight Deck.  The systems also have 27dB of noise protection for the users.

dBD Communications accredited to BS EN ISO 9001:2015 and follow a strict quality management system.
