ALEA Annual Conference, Tucson, AZ, July 14, 2010 – Becker Avionics, a leading provider of communication, navigation, surveillance and search & rescue equipment for airborne and ground applications, announces that the Audio Control Units (ACU) for its Digital Audio and Intercom System (DVCS6100) are delivered as Night Vision Goggle (NVG) NVIS green B compatible, or upon request as Night Vision Goggle certified.
The United States Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) recently published its final rule making for Nighy Vision Goggle (NVG) operation, establishing requirements for aircraft night vision goggle training, proficiency and operations. NVG operations are a tool to enhance the pilot's ability to maintain visual reference at night. As a result, many operators are adopting NVG capability for their aircraft. By making the commitment to NVG compatibility, Becker Avionics is endeavoring to offer a better and safer solution for its customers as the industry moves towards expanding NVG operations.
About the DVCS6100
The Audio Control Unit for the Digital Audio and Intercom System DVCS6100 provides the customer with ability to match a wide range of operational requirements with only one system. The built-in scalability and flexibility reduces not only the cost and time requirements for constant re-engineering and certification for a tailored system solution, but also reduces the learning curve for integration, maintenance and troubleshooting time. Through software programming options, the system is both easily and quickly configurable to individual customer requirements, thus saving time and money.
The DVCS’ open system architecture technology provides for operational comfort and superior voice quality, ensuring that almost any customer requirement can be met, while providing crystal clear communication for crew and passengers. Becker Avionics focuses on meeting individual requirements with the highest commitment to quality and customer satisfaction. The state-of-the-art Digital DVCS6100 will enhance the effectiveness of any aerial platform. When compared to a legacy analog audio system, Digital technology provides simplified installation, improved performance, reduced wiring and weight, along with reduced installation and maintenance costs. Furthermore, the comprehensive built-in-test (BIT) feature enables line maintenance crews to easily diagnose/isolate failures and replace system components quickly.
No matter what the mission; from Police and EMS, to passenger transport and surveillance or utility operations, the Becker Digital Audio system ensures a more modern and capable aerial platform.
