Tactilon Dabat

Smartphone and TETRA radio in one Download details

Smart. Strong. Secure.

More and more professionals use both a TETRA radio and a smartphone to work. But there is better news: the functions of a mission-critical radio and a smartphone have been combined into the Tactilon Dabat hybrid device.

Tactilon Dabat is a rugged smartphone with a TETRA radio inside - and it is designed for ergonomic push-to-talk use.

Use it as a TETRA radio for critical communications. Use it as a smartphone for mobile applications and special public safety apps. 

In other words, you have TETRA and LTE available in one device.

Tactilon Dabat can help organisations save time, money, resources - and lives.

It’s a smartphone

Tactilon Dabat has a big and bright touchscreen: advanced applications are right at your fingertips. And the touchscreen can be used also when wearing gloves.


Award-winning device

Tactilon Dabat has won the category of "Best evolution to future broadband" in the International Critical Communications Awards. The award recognized Tactilon Dabat as the forerunner in the dual use of both TETRA and broadband.

Tactilon Dabat also won the Intersec Award of “Innovative Security Product of the Year” in 2018.

Tactilon Dabat - more than a smartphone

In addition to its smartphone capabilities, Tactilon Dabat offers the same functionality once found only on TETRA radios. It can operate on any standard TETRA network on the 380–430 MHz frequency band.

A physical push-to-talk button (not a fiddly screen icon) makes it easy for the user to talk to TETRA groups. The professional form factor also makes it comfortable for prolonged use.

Designed for professionals

For example, Tactilon Dabat is optimised for speech, not music as are many smartphones. It cuts background noise that many professional users struggle with.


And there are four more ways that Tactilon Dabat is built to cope with professional use.

Built to cope with professional use


Long-lasting, changeable battery

The battery in Tactilon Dabat is designed to last longer than a standard smartphone battery. What’s more, the battery can be changed. (Smartphone batteries tend to be non-removable.)

Rugged and weatherproof

Tactilon Dabat is very rugged. It meets both IP 65 and IP 67 classifications. (Some consumer smartphones do not even state their IP protection class.)

Tactilon Dabat’s operating temperature is specified as -20 to +55 degrees Centigrade. (A typical operating temperature for consumer smartphones is +0 to +35 degrees Centigrade.)


Personal safety functions

There are special functions for personal safety: the red emergency key, “man down” or the advanced Lifeguard feature, and the ability to disable the device either temporarily or permanently over a remote connection.


Professional apps

Professionals value security and privacy. That is why the apps in the Tactilon Dabat specific ecosystem are tested against security threats and malware risks. They are also rigorously tested and certified to verify for example that they do not break the mission critical PMR voice and data or drain the battery during field operations.
