The Tactical Communication and Protective System (TCAPS) provides concurrent hearing protection and auditory situational awareness. Historically, Soldiers have had to choose between hearing protection and force protection. As a combat force multiplier, TCAPS maintains hearing protection while enabling Soldier to use existing tactical radio resulting in increased mission effectiveness, safety, and survivability.
TCAPS Benefits to the Warfighter:
• Prevention of hearing injury
• Enhanced Command, Control and Situational Awareness
• Enhanced ability to locate and identify opposing forces while wearing hearing protection
• Seamless integration with existing communication equipment
