What the best-dressed Special Ops Forces are wearing

January 3, 2007 We’ve written before about Silynx Communications and its product range of miniature, software-defined, tactical communication headsets which are used by nearly all elite Special Ops Forces, so the company’s latest StealthOps system was a natural for these pages. StealthOps was created in response to Special Operations Forces’ need for an MBITR (Multiband Inter/Intra Team Radio ) covert system with a smaller form factor than existing systems so it could be easily concealed in covert operations. The new modular system offers complete MBITR radio concealment and a choice of either covert (wireless earpiece) or semi-covert (acoustic tube) operations. Ingeniously, a battery splitter allows the use of a battery remote from the transceiver, further reducing the form factor for easy concealment. There’s also a dual wireless PPT that can be concealed in a pocket, with a second button that can be assigned as a tone/morse generator and an elastic belt allows easy concealment of the MBITR, hand gun, spare magazine and wireless gateway under a shirt. There’s even a room eavesdropping/whisper feature with a microphone sensitivity switch.
The brochure for the new system can be found here.
