Westchester County (NY) Police Department recently decided to equip their new Bell 407 patrol helicopter with the Becker Avionics Digital Voice Communication System, the DVCS6100.

The aircraft currently is undergoing completion at Bell Helicopter Piney Flats, TN and will deliver in the first half of this year. Westchester County’s aircraft is the fist Bell 407 to be equipped with the DVCS digital audio system.

Westchester County’s new 407 will be a multi-purpose aircraft capable of rescue, personnel insertion and extraction, and law enforcement missions. It will also be equipped with microwave downlink capabilities, thermal imaging and night vision equipment, and a searchlight.

The Becker DVCS6100 was chosen by their Aviation Unit due to its unique ability to effectively manage and control all audio sources in the aircraft. Becker’s Digital multi-channel audio and intercom system, with its software configurable profiles, provides the flexibility to specifically customize the system to meet the demanding operational requirements of airborne Law Enforcement organizations.

Brett Gardner, Director of Sales and Marketing, said, “Our DVCS6100 is well suited to Westchester County’s multi-role law enforcement mission. There’s no doubt that our digital intercom product will enhance and sustain their demanding operations. We appreciate their vote of confidence in our product and we stand ready to provide them with outstanding product support should the need arise.”

About the DVCS6100
The DVCS6100 design provides the customer with ability to match a wide range of operational requirements with only one system. The built-in scalability and flexibility reduces not only the cost and time requirements for constant re-engineering and certification for a tailored system solution, but also reduces the learning curve for integration, maintenance and troubleshooting time. Through software programming options, the system is both easily and quickly configurable to individual customer requirements, thus saving time and money.

The DVCS’ open system architecture technology provides for operational comfort and superior voice quality, ensuring that almost any customer requirement can be met, while providing crystal clear communication for crew and passengers. Becker Avionics focuses on meeting individual requirements with the highest commitment to quality and customer satisfaction.

The state-of-the-art Digital DVCS6100 will enhance the effectiveness of any aerial platform. When compared to a legacy analog audio system, Digital technology provides simplified installation, improved performance, reduced wiring and weight, along with reduced installation and maintenance costs. Furthermore, the comprehensive built-in-test (BIT) feature enables line maintenance crews to easily diagnose/isolate failures and to replace system components quickly.

No matter what the mission; from EMS to law enforcement, to passenger transport and surveillance or utility operations, the Becker Digital Audio system ensures a more modern and capable aerial platform.
