The TEMPEST contract with the Council of Europe is a significant win, reflecting SST's close understanding of the Council's requirements, and our ability to deliver a competitive technical solution. We will be supplying the new laptops across an initial two-year period, backed up by our comprehensive support and maintenance service.
