Becker Avionicsâ€™ DVCS6100 Digital Audio System was recently selected by Broward County Sheriffâ€™s Office for integration into their new multi-mission EC135 helicopter. The aircraft will soon undergo completion at Southeast Aerospace and will be specifically tailored to the needs of Browardâ€™s Air Support Unit.
