Today’s military, aerospace and government personnel expect more advanced functionality from intercoms and more options to communicate with one another as they engage in an extensive range of operations. Through its deep industry experience and close cooperation with users, Clear-Com has developed proven intercom solutions with key capabilities to address the demanding breadth of communication requirements. Clear-Com’s intercom systems are a strategic tool for being more prepared, collaborating effectively and becoming highly efficient.
Ground Control Stations
The United States Military and Border Patrol utilize Clear-Com intercom devices to manage drone missions over US borders as well as strategic positions overseas. It is extremely important that communications carry high quality audio that’s both secure and redundant. At Ground Control Stations (GCS) located at various bases, Clear-Com systems allow Pilots, Sensors and Observers to communicate continuously as they conduct both surveillance and tactical missions with unmanned aircraft.
Cross Domain Solutions
Clear-Com solutions have been deployed across a diverse range of vertical markets to support work teams that need instant connections, real-time two-way communication, and secure talk and listen paths for non-interrupted communication. Clear-Com provides a true red/black system in which multiple security levels can now be traversed without compromising IP security.
Command and Control
Command and Control exercises demand the most from intercom applications. Large Command and Control operations whether it be a space launch, homeland security, battlefield, un-manned vehicle control, aircraft testing or more require the ability to talk and listen to multiple sources simultaneously. This communication absolutely requires quality and reliability. Command centers require hundreds of stations, individualized to each user’s requirements, to simultaneously communicate across any number of channels. Stand-alone systems can support hundreds of users in one area or link together to support thousands of users in multiple locations.
Radio Interfacing and Bridging
Connect Clear-Com intercom system users with Land Mobile Radio (LMR) users over Clear-Com products such as Gateway for seamless interoperability.
Additionally, Clear-Com can bridge radio channels across different radio platforms, port-to-port, port-to-multi-port and Radio-over-IP (RoIP), allowing analog-to-digital and digital-to-digital bridging and conferencing in a single platform.
Training and Simulation
Training and Simulation continues to be a growing requirement for all military personnel. Giving multiple trainees and their instructors the ability to communicate in real-time during and exercise is a requirement. Intercom systems can even provide realistic sounds, degraded audio, or interference to simulate a real-world environment. Critical life-safety simulations such as the underwater training of astronauts or live-fire exercises for tanks and mobile armor benefit from real-time, high quality communication. As Clear-Com is used in real world military scenarios for multiple communication applications, it is important that the identical equipment is used in training and simulation facilities.
Test and Evaluation
Test and Evaluation requires reliable easy to use communications systems with great clarity and intelligibility. Test and Evaluation communication systems can range from a few people in multiple rooms testing software, to midsized systems providing ground support for aircraft, to large regionalized systems for missile tests. Clear-Com’s high quality, low latent intercom system provides a significant performance improvement over traditional or legacy systems. Clear-Com equipment has been used at every major US Military test range.
