The VIPER QUAD Comm Push-to-Talk was developed to give demanding operators the ability to communicate with multiple assets and control multiple platforms
The VIPER QUAD Comms Push-to-Talk was developed to meet the requirements/needs of an operator with the combination of our headset product mix and associated plug and play cable assemblies. With all of its capabilities, the VIPER PTT measures a compact 2.75" T x 2.50" W x 1.25" D. The VIPER was designed for ground / air operations as well as surface swimming.
The VIPER features twin inboard and twin outboard recessed PTT actuation switches. The two PTT switches shown here face inboard when worn on a MOLLE vest. These two switches, at the request of a specific client, control a primary and secondary body worn radio. If only one body worn radio is connected, the headset will receive incoming radio signals through both ear cups. If both body worn radios are connected, the incoming radio signals are automatically split -- primary radio in left ear and secondary radio in right ear.
This photo shows the outboard side of the VIPER Push-to-Talk. This model, built to spec for a specific client, allows the operator to not only be connected to two body worn radios but also connect into the boat radio - utilizing the top switch to TX and RX push to talk on an asset's intercom. The bottom PTT switch allows the operator to "LOCK" open the boom mic for intercom communications. The operator simply depresses and releases the bottom actuation switch which sends an ascending tone to his headset ear cups - confirming the operator has LOCKED into the asset's intercom and is in open/hot mic microphone mode. To exit the intercom mode, the operator simply depresses and releases the PTT switch again and will hear a descending tone - confirming the previous intercom hot mic has 'UNLOCKED" from the asset's intercom.
The VIPER PTT connects to a MOLLE vest via twin, replaceable, blackened steel MOLLE clips. The bottom edge of each clip is slightly rounded to capture each MOLLE vest strip it is threaded through to ensure a solid, tight position on the wearer's vest.
