This system is heavily based upon the radio, headset, antenna network and “wired” intercom technology and hardware that C-AT has successfully implemented at other U.S. Army sites including: CAMDS, JACADS, TOCDF, UMCDF, NECDF.



Key system features include:

  • Low technical interface to ensure ease of use.
  • All intercoms (wired or wireless) are capable of providing hands-free, full-duplex/hot mic, two way voice communications. Wired intercoms are capable of push-to-talk operation as well.
  • This system has been linked to the high power, Motorola trunked radio system at PCAPP
  • The radios are compatible with unique, single use DPE-PPE, Level “A” and “B” PPE including all SCBA masks, cartridge respirators, and PAPR respiratory protection.
  • Multiple intercom channels available to support multiple, simultaneous entry/ops teams
