The Defense Department has ordered $6.4 million worth of Project 25-compliant portable and mobile radios and accessories from EF Johnson Co., a subsidiary of EFJ Inc., according to company officials.

Project 25 is the standard for interoperable digital two-way wireless communications products.

EF Johnson of Waseca, Minn., provides two-way radios and communication systems for law enforcement, firefighters, EMS and the military. Its parent company, EFJ, is a wireless telecommunications solutions provider.

'The DOD has been a significant customer of ours over the last 18 months, and we are pleased to assist them in their efforts to successfully complete their critical Project 25 communication objectives,' said Michael Jalbert, chairman and chief executive officer of EFJ.
