Invisio Showcase Intercom System to Prospective Customers
Speaking to MONS at this year’s Association of the United States Army (AUSA) exhibition held in Washington DC between 9th and 11th October, Invisio disclosed that it has witnessed “significant customer interest” in its new Intercom System which the firm announced in September during the Defence and Security Exhibition International event in London.
Housed in a box weighing 0.5 kilograms (1.1 pounds), the Intercom System can be easily housed in a soldier’s webbing or in their backpack. Moreover, the product can be used in a mounted or dismounted fashion, and used onboard aircraft or maritime platforms. The company continued that a lot of its existing customers in the conventional and special forces world have shown great interest in this new product.
The Intercom System can connect up to four disparate tactical radios and up to five users. This allows these users to seamlessly communicate with each radio connected to the intercom and to switch between these radios using their standard handheld radio control unit, thus removing the need to physically operate each of their radios directly each time they wish to use it. Such considerations are important, Invisio added, as soldiers such as Joint Terminal Attack Controllers maybe typically required to use a number of radios such as a standard handheld transceiver, and possibly a satellite communications system or vehicular radio to facilitate communications with aircraft or with other echelons of command.
Invisio continued that the product is “radio agnostic” regarding the transceivers that it can accommodate, and several Intercom Systems can be “daisy chained” or connected together to increase the number or users and radios which can be connected together. Invisio stated that they hope to commence production of the Intercom System by the middle of 2018.
