The CBRNe PPE radio headset/P-T-T is compatible with Level A/B/C PPE SCBA/M-4x/M-50 masks/PAPRS. It was Developed by C-AT® from 30 years of chem-bio demil experience for the CST Recon and CERF-P “hot zone” entries. Throughout the design and manufacturing of the headset, PTT “button” size, location, pressure required to “key” the radio, and stability inside a Level “A” were all concerns and were successfully addressed.
