AUSA 2017: Revision unveils latest tactical communications headset
After first unveiling the system at AUSA 2017, the next-generation communication and hearing protection system will be commercially available in the first quarter of FY18.
Designed to improve team communications and enhance situational awareness for warfighters in hostile, noise cluttered environments, the system allows dismounted close-combat users to detect vital sounds.
The headset uses digital active noise reduction (ANR) technology to mitigate low frequency noise generated by military vehicle platforms, protect hearing and preventing fatigue and unintelligible speech.
‘We are now taking the bold step to set the bar higher in the tactical communications and hearing protection industry and to take our head system solutions to the next level of integration,’ Jonathan Blanshay, CEO, Revision Military said.
The ComCentr2 headset system will be capable of integrating with a variety of helmets hubs and devices, such as Revison’s Special Operations Forces helmet and the Batlskin Caiman.
‘Revision has worked in parallel with companies in this field, collaborating to seamlessly integrate helmet systems with tactical headsets,’ Blanshay said in a company statement.
According to the company, the new headset will fill a gap in the market through its incorporation of two forward and two rear facing microphones providing 360 degree situational awareness, while 3D spatial communication enables users to receive radio communications in a three-dimensional listening environment.
To ensure the device is compatible with legacy and future systems, Revision’s system includes a human interface device that supports a wide variety of system configurations and communications devices which enable mission specific configurations in multi-role and multi-channel environments.
