Becker Avionics receives FAA production certificate to manufacture Airborne Digital Audio and Intercom System DVCS 6100 in U.S.

Becker Avionics announced today that the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has granted the production certification to manufacture the Digital Voice Communication System (DVCS) 6100 at its U.S. subsidiary, in Miramar, Florida.

"With certification and production authority in hand, Becker Avionics will begin manufacturing the DVCS6100 system in the U.S. immediately" said Roland Becker, President and CEO of the Becker Avionics Group.

He continued "The decision for establishing a U.S. production line was taken in 2009. This step is of great importance to the Becker Avionics Group, as we strengthen our presence in the U.S.. We are committed long-term to enhancing our U.S. presence as well as serving the North and South American aviation markets more closely. Over the past 2 years we have focused on penetrating the U.S. market, and it is critical for us that we remain competitive in the biggest aviation market in the world."

Arturo Garcia, Production Manager added "Our staff worked hard over the past 18 months to build-up the production capability. This included excessive overseas training, facility modification, inventory build-up and establishing the required FAA documentation and manuals to receive the FAA production certificate. The local production capability will further strengthen our U.S. employee base, support maintaining our competitive edge, and will bring significant economic activity to Becker Avionics, Inc."

DVCS6100 Digital Audio System Features

The DVCS6100 product fully reflects Becker Avionics' proven know-how of more than four decades in audio system development for the aerospace industry. Since the market introduction of the 1st DVCS generation in 2005, over 700 systems have been delivered, with all achieving outstanding field reliability. Our continuous product improvement program has made the DVCS6100 another Becker Avionics success story.

Becker's Digital Audio technology is superior to any analog system, as it offers crystal-clear voice communication quality, a proven Man-Machine-Interface (MMI), outstanding reliability, scalability and flexibility, and is software configurable. The main system components of the DVCS6100 system are the Remote Electronic Unit (REU) 6100, the Audio Control Unit (ACU) 6100, and the optional Intercom Amplifier IC3100.

The product offers up to 8 communication transmit (TX) and up to 8 receiver (RX) channels, an integrated warning tone generator for up to 8 different signals, an amplifier for 2 cockpit speakers, as well as interfaces for 2 Cockpit Voice Recorders (CVR), and a Public Address Amplifier (PA).

Up to 6 ACU's can be operated together with one REU. Each unit can be configured with the included software to give complete adjustments across different on-board systems. The system also meets the highest standards for night operation under NVG and military conditions. The ACU6100 is available with NVIS green (MIL-STD 3009 Green B) and white Backlight, and offers emergency and slaved mode operation. Thus, the DVCS6100 represents a unique mission support tool that easily outperforms the competition.
