The U.S. Army has begun introduction of a new vehicular intercom system designed to offer soldiers 21st century communications features inside a variety of vehicles. A recent milestone decision by the Army’s program executive officer for enterprise information systems (PEO EIS) gave the go-ahead for procurement of the Army-Navy/Vehicle Inter Communications 5 system, or AN/VIC-5 (V) designed and manufactured by joint venture Northrop Grumman and Cobham.

AN/VIC-5’s customizable, mix-and match, modular architecture scales to accommodate virtually any platform requirements. This intuitive, flexible approach allows users to combine system components to provide clear, noise-free communications between crewmembers inside the combat vehicle and externally to dismounted users and combat net radios. Selecting from a variety of standard modules enables system scalability to support vehicle command post operations and tactical operations centers with up to 58 users and 16 combat net radios.
