BLACKBURN, England, 29 Jan. 2011. Cobham will provide its military Vehicle Intercom System and Eagle Close Combat Radio to an undisclosed Middle East user through two contracts totaling $21 million.
Integrating the Eagle Close Combat Radio with the Vehicle Intercoms allows dismounted soldiers to communicate with vehicle crews and remotely access the Combat Net Radio system.
The Eagle Radio is designed as a short range squad radio and as a wireless link to a Vehicle Intercom System. Eagle was selected for its ease of use, full duplex ad-hoc networking capability, security features, and remote access to man-pack and vehicle mounted Combat Net Radios.
Cobham's Intercom System is the compact version of its ROVIS range, designed for use on vehicles where space is at a premium.
