July 31, 2006 Silynx creates miniature tactical hearing protection communication headsets for the US Special Operations Command (USSOCOM), US Army, USMC and many of the world’s elite Special Forces. It is operated by a team of experienced former Special Operations personnel worked with the SOF community to develop its new QuietOps Smart Tactical Communication Headset and Ear Protector. The company aims to replace multiple tactical communication headsets with one lightweight system with enhanced functionality, and the software-defined communication headset provides full-spectrum active noise reduction, thus enabling near-normal speech and hearing in the harshest environments. It comes with a dual wireless PTT with Picatinny rail attachment, and seamless will seamlessly integrate with the majority of SOF intercom systems. It has VOX for hands-free operation and offers super-normal hearing and sound localization along with a range of other covert communication functions plus total mask efficiency (no need for throat, boom or bone conduction mics) for complete communication flexibility.
