The U.S. Marine Corps has selected INVISIO for their Hearing Enhancement Program with a first order worth Skr43 million (about €4 million). The systems consist of both communications enabled versions and as well as hearing protection only. Infantry, artillery, reconnaissance and combat engineer Marines decided on INVISIO systems based on fit, form, function and comfort.
The new headset systems will allow Marines to wear hearing protection, yet still provide the opportunity to communicate and understand what is going on around them. The headset systems are rugged and capable of operating in a wide range of environments, from cold weather to extreme heat. The INVISIO systems are compatible with Marine Corps radios and the Marine Corps Enhanced Combat Helmet.
”We are very excited and pleased to have won the competition for the Marine Hearing Enhancement Program,” said Ray Clarke, CEO of INVISIO Communications Inc. in the U.S. “We look forward to providing Marines with a suite of hearing protection and tactical communications systems combining both protection and capability.”
