Clear-Com intercom systems provide solutions for almost any communications need in the Military, Aerospace and Government world. The system is a specifically-configured communications solution intended to connect individuals who are working on the same project at the same time. As opposed to the classic telephone system, a Clear-Com system can provide a secure, highly reliable, low latent path which allows communication between two or hundreds of people simultaneously.
A major space agency facility features a six million gallon pool as part of a simulation that trains international astronauts on the weightless conditions of space. Clear-Com’s FreeSpeak II wireless intercom and the Eclipse HX matrix systems enable the team to coordinate their communication reliably and clearly.
Located two degrees north of the Arctic Circle in Norway, the Andoya Space Center and a separate rocket launch site recently installed the HelixNet digital network partyline and LQ Series IP interfaces to overcome challenges in audio quality, long cable runs and the flexibility needed for system configuration. With previous experience with Clear-Com’s analog solutions, the team once again turned to the leader in communications.
Clear-Com provides unique solutions for Ground Control Stations (GCS) workflows, based on the ability to include cross-domain components with physical separation between two or more levels of security classification levels, seamless integration and push-to-talk workflow across all missions systems. The Eclipse HX matrix and FreeSpeak II wireless platforms are used on missile ranges thanks to the ability of the architectures to be linked long distances over IP.
The Mercury Interface Unit is a multi-purpose device that provides multi-channel real-time voice communication, radio interoperability, conventional and VoIP telephony, and other capabilities over terrestrial and/or satellite networks. It can be used as a single-site or standalone intercom system of up to 32 users in close proximity (up to 1500 ft). The MIU acts as a versatile audio processing unit and IP gateway allowing a wide range of external devices to be connected to the intercom network.
Best use case scenarios include Ground Control Stations, Cross Domain Solutions, Radio Interfacing and Bridging, and Test and Evaluation.
