Eurosatory 2016

Hearing protection for Estonia [ES2016D2]

14 June 2016

Estonia’s army has selected the Racal Acoustics RA7000 Elite hearing protection and communication system for use with its CV90 tracked vehicles.

Racal is a division of Esterline, and is displaying the Elite system for the first time in Europe at Eurosatory (Hall 5, Stand C458).

Designed in the UK for defence, security and emergency service applications, Elite combines hearing protection, local sound awareness and secure communications in one unit.

Up to 36dB of noise attenuation is provided, permitting safe and efficient operations in the noisy environment of a tracked vehicle. Estonia has selected the system for troops travelling in the CV90 and the system has been integrated into Estonia’s tactical network. Soldiers with Elite will be able to communicate via three networks, as well as the vehicle’s intercom system.
