Dallas Avionics Announces Push-to- Talk Solution Now Available


Dallas Avionics Inc. recently announced at the Airborne Public Safety Association (APSA) annual APSCON convention in Louisville, Kentucky, that the long anticipated push-to-talk (PTT) solution for emergency responders is now available. The new PTT solution pairs the Latitude Technologies Inc., (Latitude) SkyNode® S200-P12 and the Technisonic Industries (Technisonic) TDFM 9100 to create the system.


“We have worked with both Latitude and Technisonic for many years and they are well-known for their innovative communications solutions,” said Vice President of Sales for Dallas Avionics Scott Davis. “Law enforcement, first responders, border patrol, and other emergency responders have asked for this system for a long time, and we can now deliver a system that meets their needs.”


The TDFM 9100 has significantly improved by expanding the platform’s capability to fully support an additional two external communications devices beyond the radio’s internal two all-band FM modules. Technisonic announced its multiple


purpose communication port ability on the TDFM 9100 earlier in the year. The new MCP capability is a standard feature on all TDFM-9100’s and was developed not only to integrate and pass Mic/Audio/PTT, but is also designed to allow for both control and feature integration on select products. “We have had customers asking for this capability to support both legacy and P25 technology,” Technisonic Business Development Manager Jim Huddock said. “Now with Latitude’s product and Dallas Avionics’ distribution, we can offer them the solution they have been asking for,” added Huddock.


Latitude’s SkyNode S200P-12 uses the Iridium satellite communications system to provide PTT and satcom voice channel

“Helicopters utilizing a working platform to perform construction, maintenance, and inspection services, can complete work faster and more efficiently than a ground crew,” said David G Hill, Tennessee Valley Authority general manager of aviation services. “The ability to deliver linemen directly onto the structure allows the work to be completed without impacting the surrounding environment.”


TVA’s service area covers most of Tennessee, portions of Alabama, Mississippi, and Kentucky, and small slices of Georgia, North Carolina, and Virginia.

This enables air and ground support teams to communicate seamlessly with no delays, and instant communication between multiple agencies.
