Integrated soldier systems specialist Revision Military has unveiled a tactical communications headset at AUSA 2017 in Washington, DC as it seeks to further extend capabilities associated with its range of combat helmets.

Revision Military’s SenSys ComCentr2 Tactical Headset System has been designed on the back of the company’s experience in developing integrated head protection systems and power management solutions, including participation in the US Special Operations Command’s (USSOCOM’s) TALOS (Tactical Assault Light Operator Suit) and FTHS (Family of Tactical Headborne Systems) programmes.

The move represents Revision Military’s first step into the tactical communications market, providing potential customers with “unfettered situation awareness in hostile, noise-cluttered settings,” company CEO, Jonathan Blanshay said.

Speaking to IHS Jane’s , Blanshay added: “The ComCentr2 Tactical Headset System will integrate with a variety of helmets, hubs and devices, will improve team communication and will keep pace with future technology.” Headsets will be available to customers during the first quarter of 2018 onwards.

According to the company, SenSys ComCentr2 can be integrated with any modern helmet system, including Revision Military’s own inventory of Batlskin Caiman Special Operations Forces helmets, designed for the FTHS solicitation.

The digital headset can also be networked into wider soldier systems and includes digital active noise reduction technology which mitigates low frequency noise generated by military vehicles, to protect hearing, prevent fatigue, and improve speech intelligibility, Revision Military representatives confirmed.

The over-the-ear unit comprises two forward- and two rear-facing microphones for 360-degree audio detection as well as a handheld human interface device (HID) to enable radio transmission, volume adjustment, and switching between radios.

The lower section of the HID features a modular dongle which provides a plug-and-play capability for multiple system configurations with C4ISTAR solutions, providing operators with a multirole system for multichannel environments.
