Developed at the request of a U.S. Military Special Forces Medic for use in aircraft and ground vehicles as well as for relaying/exchanging info between HELO and medical personnel at Combat Hospitals during casualty exchange. The TMIC is an approved product employed by the U.S. Military's TCCC Program.
The TMIC is simple to use. A MEDIC mounts the TMIC pouch on his MOLLE vest. Packed inside the pouch, along with the TMIC control housing, are two cables terminated with standard NEXUS female plugs. The MEDIC pulls out the shorter length cable (6 inches) and plugs his headset in. The second, longer cable (30 inches), can be handed to a patient, fellow medic or doc and the two are linked together in a hot mic scenario so no PTT function is required - allowing personnel hands free crucial comms
The inboard side of the TMIC features a remote volume control knob with partial shroud. This allows the wearer to adjust the receive volume of both personnel linked to the TMIC. This was a key in the TMIC's development to allow personnel to communicate comfortably in both low and high noise environments.
