UK MOD Select MCL TIPPS Hearing Protection
07 Apr 2015
MCL is proud to announce it has been awarded a contract by the UK MOD for the supply of its TIPPs (Tactical In-Ear Protection Plugs) solution to meet the authority's requirement for a Tactical Hearing Protection System for the Basic User Soldier (THPS BU).
Developed specifically for THPS BU, MCL designed, developed and manufactured the product with its partner Dynamic Ear Company. Claire King Head of Business Development for MCL commented, "The team has worked extremely hard to bring to market a world beating product that meets the situational awareness requirements of our soldiers whilst protecting their hearing, this is a great achievement".
TIPPs are a new generation of dual mode passive hearing protection plugs. In closed mode TIPPs provide hearing protection against continuous noise such as tracked vehicles and air platforms. In open mode a unique patented filter attenuates high level impulse noises. As the noise impulse increases so does the attenuation level without affecting mission critical non-impulse noise such as voice signals and warning signals, these remain audible.
Unlike other earplugs, TIPPs are extremely low profile when fitted in the ear and have been tested compatible with all in service helmets, headsets, glasses and goggles.
