Technomad Introduces LMR Interface for Military PA Systems

New system allows field staff to use existing land mobile radios to talk directly to PA system for a variety of military field applications


BOSTON, June 28, 2007 – Technomad Associates, LLC introduces its new LMR Interface for Technomad Military PA systems. The 1RU system allows military units to interface their existing inventory of land mobile radios with Technomad Turnkey and Modular PA systems without the need to purchase additional costly equipment. The result is a sophisticated way for soldiers and unit leaders to talk through the Giant Voice PA system from anywhere within the LMRs multi-mile range.

The LMR Interface is available in most VHF and UHF versions for compatibility with most LMRs, including the most sophisticated P-25 compliant units that allow field staff to speak to specific groups or zones. The LMR interface provides a simple, reliable way for field staff to address not only radio carriers, but the entire facility via a powerful, intelligible Technomad PA system. LMR integration is ideal for forward operating bases, large fixed installations, firing-line training and combat simulation among other applications. It can be used as a primary means of voice communications in Turnkey systems, or as a backup audio channel in a larger Modular PA system for force protection and other announcements in the event the main control system is taken down.

The LMR Interface is the latest addition to a growing arsenal of Technomad military products, including its Turnkey and Modular PA systems with Technomads high-quality, rugged and weatherproof loudspeakers; and its SuperConductor MP3 player/recorder for interjecting instant and automatic sounds over the PA system for training and other military exercises and communications.

The Technomad LMR Interface is normally installed in the control/amplifier rack of a Turnkey PA system, or in the Audio Source Pack of a Modular PA system that links numerous Technomad loudspeakers over a large coverage area. Field staff on foot or in vehicles can communicate directly to the PA system; the radio signal is connected to the mixer through the LMR Interface and sent onto the speakers.

The Technomad LMR Interface comes with audio cable to connect with Technomad Military PA systems, and arrives pre-installed in the control/amplifier rack when ordered with a Military PA system. All Technomad Military PA systems offer CD-quality digital audio and speech intelligibility far superior to traditional horn speaker systems that suffer from inherent distortion and narrow audio bandwidth. System options include wireless microphones, telephone system interfaces, solar and wind power, DC power or ‘euro’ AC power adapters, and the SuperConductor military MP3 player.
