Denmark orders noise-reduction headsets

11th January 2021 - 18:00 GMT | by The Shephard News Team

RA4000 Magna to equip Danish Leopard and CV90 armoured vehicle crews.

Danish defence procurement agency DALO has ordered an undisclosed number of RA4000 Magna digital active noise reduction (ANR) headsets from Racal Acoustics, in a seven-year framework contract worth up to $4.7 million.

RA4000 was selected specifically to meet the noise-protection needs of Royal Danish Army Leopard 1/2 MBT and CV90 IFV crews, Racal announced on 11 January.

The company will also provide a full support package including training, consumables and spares, plus an option for follow-on orders.

As well as the headset itself, the RA4000 includes a ballistic helmet with integrated side-rails and NVG mount, plus a downlead to connect the system to the in-vehicle intercom.

Integrated battery power means that RA4000 users can even retain noise protection when dismounted from their vehicle. As well as connecting the crew to the intercom, the system can be connected to remote communications devices, such as a Personal Role Radio or other man-pack devices, to allow the user to communicate with dismounted troops outside the armoured vehicle crew environment.
