Polycon is the tried and tested wireless intercom system that comes as standard fit on all AW139's with SAR and Hoist provision.
The Polycon can be fitted with up to 16 channels allowing multiple company aircraft to operate in the one area without interference.
The Polycon system allows crews to have full situation awareness by transmitting ICS external of the airframe to the hand units. This essentially allows the external crew to never leave the ICS loop of the aircraft which has a marked improvement in safety and mission communication.
The PNG is the next generation system. The PNG is a full duplex system that has all the basic features of the Polycon with several upgrades, PNG features include:
Aircraft radio transmission from the handsets, whilst external of the airframe.
Non-Interrupted VOX allowing for clear communication. .
GPS location and identification from the aircraft.
FLIR and Moving Map integration.
Multiple target identification of map systems.
AIR SART beacon including remote activation from the control panel.
Operationally portable handsets, crew can be inserted with one airframe and picked up with another.
Operational crew integration into ICS, eg Dog Squad, SAR crews, Operational Supervisors, etc can become part of ICS loop.
