IWCS

Communication saves lives!

IWCS with tactical helmet

Being able to safely communicate with fellow crew mates in demanding situations and environment is one of the most vital resources in todays search and rescue vessels, combined with communications for outside sources, typically multiple VHF radios, main scheme and even mobile phones ! Its all doable and integrated with the IWCS marine comms platform.

Users include SAR teams, police, Border Force and commercial vessels, all demanding full-duplex wired or wireless comms all of which are available from Dorian Marine.

We are not box shifters – we are solution providers, and to that end we will visit and survey the client requirements and produce a project proposal which may include upgrade of the radios and even upgrading of the navigation systems at the same time. Once installed by our professional team we commission and sea trial the comms with the client to ensure all parties are happy.

IWCS Comms

Dorian Marine Ltd are please to introduce you to the IWCS marine specific headset comms system designed from the ground up. The IWCs comms system is the culmination of 7 years of R&D to bring what we consider the best headset comms system for search and rescue vessels on the market. The Danish comms system has been developed for all areas of marine use and the IWCS team have worked with Scandinavian rescue teams to bring comms to the PWC platform

Core components are waterproof and modular to allow for expansion of the system. All are specifically made for use in fast rescue craft and have been tested to withstand the rigours of deployment in demanding environments. Dorian Marine offer a system builder package with placement proposals, system drawings and install and training on completion of the project.

“We use IWCS wireless headsets on our new lifeboat and are very impressed with the equipment. Comms are very clear at high speeds and the functionality of being able to isolate different crew members to transmit on the radio is crucial for lifeboat operations. We would highly recommend the IWCS kit.”
