Outacom Communications System

Outacom Communication System

The Outacom patented Communication System is an extremely rugged, powerful, military proven, loudspeaker and multiple speech input system. It integrates with all standard internal communication systems and offers an easily-implemented tactical battlefield communications innovation. The purpose of this system is to reduce the risk of unintended civilian or military casualties and the risk of needless collateral damage. The Outacom Communication System allows vehicle commanders and other authorised personnel the tactical ability to talk to people up to 250 metres from the vehicle or fixed military installation. Speech inputs include a patented secure interconnectivity with internal communications systems, separate rugged microphones, flash memory, MP3, and secure radio. The Outacom Communication System can be configured to meet all security protocols yet remains easy and intuitive to use. It is MIL-STD-810, IP67 waterproof, shockproof and blast proof to 70G.

The situations where the Outacom Communication System is the sensible tactical option would include confronting suspects approaching on foot, those who may be using a vehicle or those operating within a crowded place.

Less-than-lethal effect technology: Vitavox Outacom Communication System.

The Outacom Communication System is a tactical, less-than-lethal audio solution. It can be uniquely deployed as either a plug-and-play addition to the existing vehicle communications system or in a standalone configuration allowing the operational crew the opportunity to reason audibly with the suspected miscreants in their own language before committing to a potentially more damaging course of events. The Outacom Communication System has a failsafe function to enable isolation from the internal communications system and prevent unintended output.

The Vitavox less than lethal option will allow the armed forces to deal with challenging situations, minimizing (ideally avoiding) any impact on bystanders or other collateral effects, and reduce the risk of inadvertently using lethal force. The Vitavox Outacom Communication System is suitable for use by Armed Forces on current operations in a variety of situations from foot patrols through to deployment at fixed military installations. The ability to be able to deter people from approaching when instructed not to and to disrupt enemy ability to monitor friendly force activity are among the functions that Outacom Communication System will provide. A portable version is also available.
