During an ALEA show interview Brett Gardner, Director of Sales and Marketing stated, “Airborne audio and intercom systems are a critical but frequently underappreciated aircraft system. Although they’re often overlooked, every aircraft — fixed or rotary, commercial or military — needs one to function effectively. Audio and intercom systems enable crews and passenger to send and receive clear voice communications in noisy environments. Even the best aircraft needs an accompanying airborne audio and intercom system to operate.”

He continued, “Especially today’s modern audio systems have become fully integrated and touch a wide range of aircraft systems. Becker Avionics has learned that operators think about their audio and intercom system traditionally as one of the last advanced avionics component for an avionics retrofit or new aircraft configuration. The Becker team devotes time to educate and train operator, crew and decision makers of the advantages of digital audio technology, as it revolutionizes the communication in a tactical aircraft.

Becker’s digital airborne audio and intercom system DVCS6100 meets the requirements for a multitude of applications including Emergency Medical Services (EMS), Airborne Law Enforcement (ALE), Forestry and Wildlife Management, Search and Rescue (SAR) and Corporate. The system offers the best performing audio and intercom solution currently on the market.
