  • Tasmania Police
  • Tasmania Fire Service
  • Ambulance Tasmania
  • State Emergency Service
  • Department of Primary Industries, Parks, Water and Environment
  • Sustainable Timber Tasmania
  • TasNetworks
  • Hydro Tasmania


The successful tenderer will be responsible for the design, build, testing, operation and maintenance of the TasGRN as well as undertake activities relevant to transition users from their existing networks.

Currently the five existing networks are:

  • digital based trunk mobile radio network primarily used by Tasmania Police, TasNetworks and Hydro Tasmania

  • an analogue based VHF network used by Sustainable Timber Tasmania and Parks and Wildlife Service
  • an analogue based VHF network used by the Tasmanian State Emergency Service
