In an emergency, clear communication between

Communication: A Critical Tool
In an emergency, communication for first responders is a critical matter. In keeping
with our promise to listen to direct input from firefighters, Honeywell is proud to
introduce two high-performance communication solutions for firefighters.
Voice Amplification System (VAS)
Best-in-class, person-to-person, distortion-free
communication is as close as the press of
a button. The Honeywell CommCommand™
Voice Amplification System is simple,
uncomplicated and dependable, with a large
speaker to amplify every word. In an environment
that can be noisy and chaotic, this system
delivers clear communication with two modes.
• Push-to-talk, where the user simply
presses the on/off button to communicate,
and releases it to end.
• Hands-free, where the user presses
the button twice to enter the continuous
talk mode.
Radio Communication System (RCS)
Introducing the CommCommand wireless
Radio Communication System — robust,
simple to use and crystal-clear. Our RCS offers
communication via a lapel microphone, either
with the facepiece donned or in a tactical radio
mode with the facepiece doffed.
The facepiece-mounted RCS delivers clear,
undistorted, remote communication via a lapel
microphone that uses Digital Spread Spectrum
technology. This technology makes it possible for
the lapel microphone and the facepiece module
to communicate with each other 14,000 times
per second.
Mission Critical: The Lapel Microphone
The workhorse of the RCS is the lapel microphone, a rugged, yet
sophisticated multi-function remote microphone:
• This is a traditional “speaker microphone” that attaches to the auxiliary
connector of a radio.
• The lapel microphone draws its power from three AAA batteries instead

Trunked Repeater Capability
The Honeywell CommCommand wireless radio system works with
sophisticated trunked repeater radio systems. The advantages of this
system include less waiting for the operator’s radio to access the radio
system and increased channel capacity for a given quality of service.
This ensures that the operator’s communications are not lost from lack
of channel access.
