Becker Avionics Digital Intercom System DVCS6100 provides crystal clear communication for UH-72A Lakota
Becker Avionics is very pleased that EADS North America has received a contract from the U.S. Army for 39 additional UH-72A Lakota Light Utility Helicopters. Becker Avionics is the supplier of the state-of-the-art Digital Intercom. According to Ventura Rigol President and General Manager of Becker Avionics, Inc, the DVCS 6100, is integrated into the aircraft at the EADS North America production line in Columbus, Miss.
“The Becker Digital Voice Communication System DVCS6100 was chosen by the U.S. Army for its operational comfort, the superior voice quality and the fact that it integrates all communications in the aircraft into one system. The system features a modular concept with the capability to be tailored for specific operational needs. This is possible as a result of its flexible user-programmable configurations. This enables the U.S. Armed Forces to perform a full spectrum of missions." Mr. Rigol stated.
The DVCS6100 has been designed for both rotary and fixed-wing applications, and fully reflects Becker Avionics’ proven know-how of more than four decades in audio system development for the aerospace industry. Since the market introduction of the 1st DVCS generation, over 300 systems have been placed into service and have achieved outstanding field reliability. The result of a continuous product improvement program has made the DVCS6100 another Becker Avionics success story.
The DVCS’ performance and scalability has led to numerous installations in a diverse mix of rotary and fixed wing platforms, including, but not limited to the following models: BO105, EC135, EC145, MD900, Bell412, S-70A, DO228, MA-600, Pilatus PC9, L-410, King Air 350, DHC-5 Buffalo.
As of today, Becker Avionics’ DVCS6100 is the only ETSO/TSO certified digital intercom system in its class.
