Ø Vehicle Intercom VIC 2000
The VIC-2000 Vehicle Intercom System is a ruggedized vehicle intercom system designed for use in military, tactical and armored vehicles. The intercom system supports simultaneous transmit and receive of up to 4 crewmen. Versions of the intercom system have been successfully fielded by SOCOM since 1996. The entire system is designed to be rapidly deployable, simple to operate and work in harsh environments.
VIC-2000 supports 4 crewmember with a full duplex vehicle intercom and the ability to simultaneously monitor two radios or selectively transmit on either.
VIC-2000 is extremely simple to install, operate and maintain in the field. Only the controller is hard-mounted in a vehicle, ensuring that the VIC-2000 can be rapidly installed, removed or reconfigured. VIC-2000 minimizes sub assemblies that require separate installation. All audio, logic, power, radio interfaces, radio selection and intercom station interface circuitry is centrally housed within the small and lightweight Intercom Master Unit (IMU). Radio and intercom paths are isolated so that intercom transmissions are separated from radio transmissions. All radio transmissions are present in the audio path.
The SMT circuitry is mounted in a heavy gauge, aluminum housing with welded seams and all connectors feature gaskets. Each unit is supplied with mounting hardware based on user specifications and is constructed from heavy gauge aluminum. The light weight of the VIC-2000 permits industrial strength Velcro™ to be used for temporary installations.
The IMU is designed to operate under a wide range of conditions with minimal power requirements. The full load current drain is less than 0.5A @ 12V. Power requirement range for the intercom systems is +11 to +31V DC with spike protection to 600V. Power input reverse polarity protected and over current limited by a self healing fuse.
VIC-2000 is fully compatible with all common military headsets equipped with either dynamic or electret microphones including the Bose Triport tactical headset, Lowe, Selex and Gentex headsets.
Ø Radio Bridge 2000
RB-2000 delivers interoperability irrespective of your systems protocol, propagation method, talk group, wave band or cryptology. RB-2000 achieves immediate & significant benefits for critical strategic and tactical systems without laptops, software or broadband backhaul links.
The RB-2000 links incompatible voice communications systems irrespective of waveband, protocol or cryptology. In less than five minutes the battery powered A4 size RB-2000 bridge commercial and military land mobile radios and all types of telephony including VoIP. Integration Interoperability achieves additional benefits which are not always immediately apparent. Integration delivers simultaneity ensuring that the same message is heard by all users at the same time, eliminating manual relay issues. Users are empowered to implement change and resolve issues at the local level. RB-2000 provides a means to work around “system features” or restrictions on maximum talk group sizes or range limitations. RB-2000 empowers tactical users to restore failed backhaul network access via any available alternative.
Where reliable radio access is required deep inside buildings or tunnels, RB-2000 extends your network up to 300m into the obstacle. Network upgrades requiring interim or continuity solutions benefit from the ability to retain compatibility throughout. Post commissioning, RB-2000 provides a fallback for dead spots or crisis infill.
RB-2000 empowers planners to think outside of hard system limitations introducing fresh capability for both legacy and modern systems.
RB-2000 requires minimal user training, no laptops, generators, broadband backhaul connections, and thankfully no requirement for communicators to consider axle weights in deployment plans.
RB-2000 delivers uplifting capabilities in an affordable and elegantly simple little black box.
