TruLink® ICS Now for Frontline to Flightline

Telephonics’ TruLink® Wireless Voice Communication System with its range of 2,500 feet is the most versatile wireless intercom in the world today. TruLink is ideal for pilots and crew members for most helicopter applications. Medevac, Aeromedical, Search and Rescue, Police, Fire and First Responders all use TruLink today. Telephonics’ TruLink® Portable Transceiver (TPT) allows crew members to easily communicate with each other while completely hands-free in the most critical of situations, increasing operational safety for crew members and patients.

The TruLink® Submersible Portable Transceiver (SPT) allows for work to be completed in and around water while freeing hands and removing dependence on traditional hand signals, whistles, or wands. The Adaptive Noise Cancellation feature facilitates clear and effortless communication even under rotor-wash conditions. The TPT and SPT offer full-duplex, hands-free and Voice Activated (VOX) communication, 31 users per channel, with 6 simultaneous speakers, and 50 channels of operation. No other communication system combines these features to support and enhance crew mission capability.
