SMITHFIELD, R.I., Oct. 12 (UPI) -- A new tactical hearing protection and communication system for military and tactical operations has been introduced by U.S. company Honeywell First Responder.
Honeywell said the product -- QuietPro QP400 -- provides smart personal hearing protection, situational awareness enhancement and the clearest incoming and outgoing communication throughout the full spectrum of training and deployment operations.
"As a Tactical Communication and Protection System, QuietPro QP400 enables soldiers to communicate in combat scenarios without compromising their ability to hear their natural surrounding and their tactical communications," said Brian Burns, director of business development for Honeywell's Government Programs.
"QuietPro QP400 delivers the clearest in-ear communication essential for understanding and adapting to rapidly changing environments."
The new Honeywell QuietPro QP400 improves two-way communications and speech intelligibility, especially in high noise. Its patented digital Active Noise Reduction technology continuously monitors ambient sound and reduces the levels of noise across the spectrum of frequencies to acceptable levels in real time.
It also features a push-button interface that provides quick and easy access and control of functions while its one-side cable design eliminates excess connections.
