FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla., 21 Feb. 2010. Accusonic Products in Bay Shore, N.Y., is introducing an ultra-light, multi-platform voice over Internet protocol (VOIP) vehicle intercom system for the confined spaces of mobile platforms like armored vehicles and military patrol craft.

The military VOIP-based ImP was designed with a software-defined radio infrastructure to enable the system to be customized to vehicle and mission type. Operating with a modular design, it supports decentralized user access to major tactical infrastructure networks.

The ImP advanced platform command and control system can connect as many as 500 nodes simultaneously and is ergonomically scaled to meet the space requirements of light combat vehicles, main battle tanks, and assault boats. ImP stands for Integrated Multi Platform.

The ImP uses a 100-megabit-per-second Ethernet channel to transmit voice, data, and video simultaneously to the vehicle crew to enable a level of situational awareness not possible with current legacy small vehicular intercom systems, Accusonic officials say.

This system also eliminates the need for a hard wired centralized interface, common to most conventional intercom systems, replacing it with a decentralized interface that allows single user access and control from anywhere in the loop.

The system's distributive design enhances battle damage resiliency to enable the system to keep working even when damaged. Furthermore, the system has the ability to self configure automatically when it is turned on.
