MCL maintains position as UK MOD hearing protection supplier of choice
Marlborough Communications Limited (MCL) has been awarded two contracts to supply hearing protection equipment to the UK Ministry of Defence (MoD), maintaining MCL’s position as the UK MoD's leading supplier of hearing protection systems for the military.
MCL partners with Danish-based INVISIO Communications to supply its S10 Tactical Hearing Protection System (THPS) for the Dismounted Close Combat User (THPS DCCU) and has won a further order within an existing contract. The system is an in-ear hearing protection and communication system for use on a single radio and consists of an in-ear headset with control unit housing the electronics for situational awareness and impulse noise protection. It is made up of two components - the X5 Bone Conduction Hearing Protection Headset and the inline control unit.
The second contract is a midlife enhancement order for INVISIO hearing protection and radio ancillaries, as well as the new INVISIO T7 lightweight and submersible hearing protection headset.
Submersible to 10 meters and ruggedised for use in the most demanding environments, the INVISIO T7 provides enhanced safety and comfort, as well as unparalleled situational awareness. Combined with INVISIO’s latest software release, the T7 offers noise cancellation when mounted on platforms and, when required, Voice Operated Transmit (VOX).
Shane Knight, managing director, MCL, said: “We’re delighted to be able to demonstrate our position as the leading supplier of hearing protection systems to the UK MoD.
“As the exclusive supplier of INVISIO Communications to the UK market, we work closely to identify and deliver bespoke advanced systems to the UK MoD. The systems have been in use for five years and it is testament to their performance that these follow-on orders were awarded to us in late 2020.
We look forward to supplying INVISIO’s latest cutting-edge technology and continue working with the MoD to deliver innovative solutions.”
