Press Release:
HONEYWELL’s QUIETPRO INTELLIGENT HEARING PROTECTION AND COMMUNICATION SYSTEM MAXIMIZES SITUATIONAL AWARENESS IN RAPID CHANGING ENVIRONMENTS

2014-04-02

 

SMITHFIELD, RHODE ISLAND, USA — Law enforcement operations depend upon well-trained tactical officers with maximum situational awareness and assistive technology. A tactical officer with impaired hearing or compromised communication, either permanent or temporary, is at a disadvantage in an operational setting.

The QUIETPRO intelligent hearing protection and communication system from Honeywell transforms critical communications from a point of vulnerability into a tactical advantage. Adapted from combat-proven technology, QUIETPRO is the only intelligent hearing protection and communication system that provides smart personal hearing protection, digitally-enhanced speech communication, and clear radio communication throughout the full spectrum of tactical operations.

Honeywell Safety Products is dedicated to supporting law enforcement officers who place their lives on the line to maintain the safety and security of our communities. With QUIETPRO, commanders can feel confident that their tactical officers maintain full hearing readiness before, during and after deployment.

QUIETPRO offers:

  • Clear two-way communications and speech intelligibility in extreme noise;
  •   “Bionic hearing” technology to deliver fast adaptive hearing protection for superior situational awareness and understanding in rapidly changing noise environments;
  •  Amplification of ambient sound up to 5x, increasing officers’ awareness of critical warning signals;  
  •  Automatic fit-check of earpiece upon insertion to ensure optimal protection; and 
  •  In-ear speaker and microphone placement allowing easy fit and comfortable long-term wear time. 

The QUIETPRO QP400 intelligent hearing protection and communication system is available from military and tactical distributors in the United States. For more information, visit http://www.honeywellsafety.com/quietpro.
