Vitavox selected for Scout vehicle PA system
Vitavox will supply a secure public address (PA) system for the General Dynamics UK Scout Specialist Vehicle (SV) programme under a new contract announced on 8 January. The contract has a potential value of £2.8 million.
The contract will see Vitavox design, engineer, manufacture and supply a military specification public address system to meet all MIL-STD and DEF STAN requirements.
The PA system will allow vehicle commanders to speak to or address persons outside the vehicle whilst remaining safe within. The company said the system will utilise the battle-proven qualities of Vitavox loudspeakers and military communications systems in a mobile, fully integrated and vehicle mounted format.
