Polycon AWIS available for C-130

22nd August 2011 - 08:28 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Becker Avionics, partner with Axnes Aviation AS for sales and marketing, as well as product support services for the Polycon Wireless Intercom Extension System for North and South America, now offers the Polycon Aircraft Wireless Intercom System (AWIS) solution for the Lockheed-Martin C-130 and other airlift and tanker aircraft. The Polycon AWIS is compatible with fixed- and rotary-wing analog and digital wired aircraft intercom systems, such as C-130 variants, C-5B, C-141B, C-17, E-2C, UH-1 and versions of the H-46/47/53/60.

The Polycon wireless intercom extension system provides the capability to have audio communications between crewmembers in and away from the aircraft. The system eliminates communication restrictions by providing seamless hands-free, wireless communications to all crewmembers to perform cargo loading, aircraft maintenance, engine runs, refueling/defueling, pre- and post fight checks and other external operations effectively and safely.

Brett Gardner, Director of Sales and Marketing for Becker Avionics, Inc. stated, "Current intercom systems utilized for short-range communications in and around airlift and tanker aircraft, typically use 50-100 foot cords that physically connect ground and aircrew members to the aircraft." He continued, "Being tethered to the aircraft by a cord restricts the user's movement and offers the potential risk for becoming tangled with other cords and equipment, thus complicating ground operations. In addition, ground and aircrew are forced to use hand signals in case the length of the cord is too short. The Polycon system eliminates all that and provides effective, long-range communication capability."

The Polycon wireless intercom system provides hands-free, semi-duplex communication, which allows an unlimited number of users on a single channel. The product was developed to meet rigorous demands of military and civil aircraft operation, operating in extreme conditions. Its rugged construction with long-range capability and semi-duplex communication integrates the external operating crew as a component of the aircraft intercom system and provides increased situational awareness and safety.
