Dominator

Next Generation Tactical Communications Suite

WHAT IS THE “DOMINATOR NEXT GENERATION MILITARY COMMUNICATIONS SUITE”?
The DOMINATOR is the first and only tactical military communications headset available that allows an operator to choose when and when not to employ electronic hearing protection. Most military communication systems require the operator to either have his/her outer ears covered by some form of circum-aural design or ear canals blocked by inner-aural devices – many of which act as both RX and TX devices. Issues surrounding these designs include ear fatigue, sweat filling the inner ear canals and less than clear communications being received when transmitting from the inner ear.

The DOMINATOR combines a waterproof/noise canceling boom microphone for TX while utilizing both bone conductors and electronic earpieces for radio RX. The bone conductors and electronic earpieces work independently of one another as well as in concert when operational requirements call for the implementation of hearing protection. The electronic earpieces are capable of performing three functions – radio RX, electronic hearing protection and user-controlled ambient environment amplification. When hearing protection is not required, the operator can remove the earpieces and stow them away in their respective headset sidepiece holders. Crucial radio RX is maintained without the use of the electronic earpieces via the bone conductors integrated into the headset. Radio transmissions are received via the facial bone area directly in front of each ear and passed to the inner ear canals. The DOMINATOR is available in both single and dual comm. models and features a broad mix of mission specific accessory cables as well as connectors for most fielded military radio platforms.
