Public Safety

SWAT: SAFETY WITHOUT COMPROMISE

SWAT_Team.pngDuring tactical operations, every SWAT team member has a specialized role within the unit, and each position experiences distinct communications challenges. Someone carrying a shield in one hand and a weapon in the other cannot easily access a Push-To-Talk (PTT) button. A sniper must keep both hands steadily on their rifle, even when needing to access their radio to message a teammate. During SWAT operations, every second matters, and seamless communication can mean the success of the operation, and the life or death of the professionals and civilians involved.

Each SWAT member has gear customized for his or her role, and each uniform has specialized communication needs. SWAT officers can customize their solution and communicate more effectively with a Tactical Kit that can be configured with up to four unique audio accessories and three PTT options. Each situation is different, and SWAT teams need to be prepared for every possible scenario.

Imagine that a criminal is barricaded in a building and the SWAT team is called in.  The shield operator is the first one to enter the building. He leads the rest of the team, holding the shield in one hand and the gun in the other. To provide critical updates on the changing situation, he needs to press the radio PTT button in order to communicate. A Ring PTT can be attached in a variety of ways so the officer can easily PTT without taking his finger off his weapon’s trigger.

The SWAT team needs to be ready and listening for further direction while also being aware of their surrounding environment. They need to protect their hearing in order to set off a stun grenade, also known as a flash bang, to disrupt hearing and balance, prior to entering a building. A bone conduction device called Temple Transducer allows officers to receive the radio communication via bone vibration to the inner ear canal. At the same time, this headset enables the team to wear critical hearing protection during the flash bang. It also leaves the ears open to hear critical noise in their surrounding environment after the bang. Being able to comfortably wear the Temple Transducers under helmets and protective masks makes this bone conduction device a perfect fit for Special Forces.

At times, SWAT members need to transmit through the radio very discreetly, speaking softly so that a suspect cannot hear the conversation. The Throat Microphone is so sensitive that it allows whispering to be transmitted quickly and clearly. This device, which uses advanced microphone technology, picks up the vibrations from the users throat so there is no noise interference when transmitting through the radio.  SWAT officers feel confident in using a Throat Microphone to communicate, and can comfortably wear any protective head gear without the  audio accessory getting in the way.

These solutions and other tactical devices easily attach to one interface and allow SWAT officers to change the devices they are using based on the operations they face.

Motorola Solutions continues to develop solutions that help officers communicate seamlessly in critical situations so that they can focus on preventing disasters.
