SILYNX Introduces Panther Headset For Simple Transition Into In-The-Ear Intra-Aural Headset

Thursday, January 25th, 2018

Tactical headset manufacturer simplifies the adoption of lightweight, in-ear tactical headsets to reduce neck fatigue

STERLING, VA (January 22, 2018) – Silynx Communications, Inc. (SILYNX), a leader in tactical in-ear headset systems for military and the market leader for law enforcement, launches its revolutionary Panther headset system.

Panther was developed to provide a simple means for operators to transition to an in-the-ear (intra aural) headset to reduce neck fatigue and improve comfort without having to replace their existing push-to-talk and cable routing system.  Circumaural headsets contribute nearly 1-pound to the operator’s head-worn kit.  Panther headset—weighing only 4 grams–is designed to simply “plug-and-play” into the innumerable push-to-talk systems fielded today.

“Law enforcement and military leadership is aware of how in-the-ear headsets can significantly reduce neck strain on their operators.  But action has been impeded by time consuming and complications with changing out headset systems. “says Silynx President, Matthew Hemenez, “Panther was introduced to provide military and law enforcement operators a quick and seamless means of transitioning to an in-ear (intra-aural) system.”

By effortlessly unplugging their existing circumaural headset from their push-to-talk (PTT) unit and plugging the Panther into that same PTT unit, in literally a matter of seconds the operator can transition from one headset to the other.  No adaptors or other hardware is required. This is also ideal for teams who want to standardize on a single push-to-talk unit while allowing operators personal preference on their headset — some might run intra-aural headsets others circumaural.

The Panther system is on display at the annual SHOT SHOW in Las Vegas, January 23-26, Silynx Booth #7310.

Panther is available through Silynx resellers and online at www.silynxcom.com

Silynx and T-Worx Intelligent Rail Enter Technology Partnership

Friday, January 19th, 2018

STERLING, VA (January 20, 2018) – Silynx Communications, Inc. and T-Worx Holdings, LLC have partnered to combine their wireless push-to-talk technology and Intelligent Rail® (also known as the Powered Rail®) technologies, respectively, to facilitate a new level of hands free communications for the military warfighter and the tactical law enforcement officer.

The core Intelligent Rail® (I-Rail®) technology by T-Worx is a sealed, ruggedized Mil-Std-1913 Picatinny Rail that provides a central power source and data connection for all weapon-mounted accessories. With this partnership, the two companies are integrating command and control from the I-Rail® via a rail-mounted control module containing three user-assignable control buttons.

Within the control module is Silynx’s proprietary wireless push-to talk (PTT) technology that seamlessly offers radio keying capability from the rail to the operator-mounted Clarus PTT unit that consolidates transmission of multiple radios without removing hands from the rifle.

Matthew Hemenez, President of Silynx Communications says, “This partnership is indicative of the commitment of both companies to enhance the command and control capability of the warfighter.” He adds, “We have done this without increasing complexity or imparting more battery requirements onto the operator.”

In all, this system allows soldiers a significant tactical advantage by enabling radio communications without removing their hands from their weapons. When not “on-the-gun,” the soldier can still activate his radio from the ambidextrous push-to-talk buttons on the body-worn control box. The I-Rail® provides electrical power directly to the control module and all weapon-mounted accessories, while also providing the “network” on the weapon for passing data and communication between accessories and off the weapon to an EUD or hub.

“This technology partnership brings together two industry leaders to develop a new generation of weapon sensor controls, each previously independent of one another,” says Don McLaughlin, President of T-Worx, “Already proven in Army trials, we expect broad scale adoption in 2018.”

The I-Rail and Clarus systems are both on display at SILYNX BOOTH #7310.
