Wireless Conferencing Introduced For Tank Crews
edited by Robert H. Williams
A spokesman said the VIC-500 was spurred by "today's digital battleground demands for greater freedom of movement and optimized coordination."
The system's full-duplex conference communications capability, he said, "allows two crew members to speak simultaneously, while an unlimited number of personnel listen in." The upshot is fewer errors.
Features include whisper function, 15 network channels, voice-activated messages and alerts and data communication protocols.
