During IDEX 2011, ELNO exhibits his latest developments in communication technology.
During IDEX 2011, ELNO exhibits his latest developments such as: Tactical headset for soldier using full bone conduction technology; Wireless technology for audio equipment; A new Active Noise Reduction tank helmet.
French Company ELNO is a leading company in communication technology for severe environment. ELNO designs and manufactures intercom and field telephony systems, including audio equipment for defense as well as radio communication equipment for security.
During IDEX 2011, ELNO exhibits his latest developments such as:
• Tactical headset for soldier using full bone conduction technology • Wireless technology for audio equipment • A new Active Noise Reduction tank helmet
Elno tactical headset Sound Bone Conduction Technology
Elno has developed a new tactical headsets using Sound Bone Conduction Technology for both the earphone and the microphone. It is intended to be used by personnel who operate in noisy environments and wants to preserve a great freedom of movement, like infantrymen, firemen and Special Forces. It leaves the user’s ears free to listen to external sources of sound.
In loud background noise, the operator can wear ear plugs to protect himself, without any degradation in hearing intelligibility. Highly comfortable, they can be interfaced with all radio sets (HF, VHF, UHF) and are compatible with a broad range of equipments, including combat helmets, hoods, NBC masks.
A common issue in today's modern armies is to allow soldiers to keep access to the onboard communication system when going out of armored vehicles.
ELNO has developed a system allowing us to add this function to any intercom: - On one side, a (master) wireless box is plugged on the intercom in place of a headset, and seen as such by the intercom. - On the other side, a (slave) wireless box is connected to this headset and seen as an intercom.
This system allows the user to move freely around the vehicle (up to 300m) without loosing the communication with the inside of the vehicle. Moreover, one master box can handle up to 4 or 7 slave boxes (depending on the version of the system), thus allowing to increase the number of users of an intercom. In that case, the system works in conference mode, allowing all users to talk and listen at the same time.
DH586 MKII Active Noise Reduction tank helmet
New ANR helmet
A common issue in today's modern armies is to allow soldiers to keep access to the onboard communication system when going out of armored vehicles. ELNO’s DH586 MKII Active Noise Reduction tank helmet is our second generation of communication equipment. Building on more than fifteen years of experience providing ANR tank helmet to armies, our new equipment allows crewman to improve mission effectiveness. It is generally accepted that high levels of noise are inherent in modern armored vehicles not only in tracked vehicles but also in wheeled vehicles. The new ELNO combat vehicle crewman helmet uses proven ANR technology that increases communication capabilities by providing enhanced acoustic protection and offering talk-through functionality.
