The Polycon system provides the capability to rotary and fixed-wing operators to have audio communications between aircraft crew members in the aircraft and away from the aircraft on the ground, as well as ground support crews. For example, helicopter pilots and off-aircraft flight paramedics preparing a patient for transport and evacuation can remain in constant communication while on the ground and in flight during a hoist rescue mission (up to 15 Nautical miles line of sight range). The Polycon system eliminates communication restrictions by providing seamless hands-free, wireless communications to all members of the crew so members can effectively perform their mission operations.

Markus Schmitz, President and General Manager for Becker Avionics Inc. said “We are very happy to be partnering with Axnes Aviation. As the leader in digital airborne audio and intercom solutions we have often been asked to recommend wireless solutions for SAR, EMS, Law Enforcement and Special Mission operations. This has been challenging, because the product selection available was limited, and did not meet the specific needs of these operators. Our approach is to provide aircraft audio solutions that help our customers maximize their operational capabilities. The use of the Polycon wireless intercom system in combination with Becker Avionics intercom products, and products from other manufacturers will bring interesting new capabilities to the professional aircraft customer.”

The Polycon communication system helps to ensure the safety of the flight crew on the ground or during demanding missions. The product consists of one aircraft interface unit, with an unlimited number of mobile equipment units and a battery charger.

The Polycon System provides: Hands-free communication between hoist operators, rescue personnel on the hoist, and off-aircraft crew members; Semi duplex voice-activated mode, hands-free mode, and a push-to-talk mode; Sixteen independent channels with unlimited mobile crew members; Unsurpassed simultaneous omni-directional communications among all users in the aircraft network, within 15 NM of the aircraft or line of sight range
