Marlborough Communications Limited (MCL), a Cohort plc company working with INVISIO Communications A/S, has received a further order for its S10 Tactical Hearing Protection Systems from the UK Ministry of Defence. The S10 Tactical Hearing Protection Systems for the Dismounted Close Combat User (THPS DCCU) are a significant step forward in the technology designed to protect the user’s hearing in training and combat situations.
It is an in-ear hearing protection and communication system for use on a single radio and consists of an in-ear hearing protection headset with control unit housing the electronics for situational awareness and impulse noise protection. It is made up of two components the X5 Bone Conduction Hearing Protection Headset and the inline control unit.
The system uses advanced digital signal processing, miniaturised audio components and ergonomic headset design to provide the most natural hearing possible. Instead of traditional sound wave technology, the patented INVISIO Bone Conduction Technology uses a small and comfortable in-ear microphone that picks up vibrations from the user’s jawbone. The vibrations are converted into sound, delivering crystal clear communication under extreme conditions, even when whispering.
