Vitavox (a division of Secomak Ltd) has been
providing military communication systems,
including loudspeakers, microphones, headsets
and other sound reproducing equipment to MoDs
for over 80 years and remains one of Britain’s very
few true remaining defence manufacturers of the
highest specification audio equipment.
It is our belief that ‘Shout before you Shoot’ should
be required doctrine and mounted as standard
on all types of military vehicles in order to reduce
risk, escalation of violence and collateral damage
to both operational and civilian personnel. We are
contracted to supply our system for the new Scout
SV Program.
Complete through life support from manufacture
to disposal ensures that Vitavox is the primary
choice for the first contact communications systems
deployed in today’s modern battlefield.
