What airboat Professionals Are Saying

The LiberatorMAX is the perfect communication system for airboat operators

While airboats and hovercraft are known as a challenge for most communications systems because of their inherent high engine and wind noise, for over 20 years Setcom’s headset and intercom systems have a record of superior performance. Setcom’s systems have been installed on numerous police, search and rescue, and civilian airboats with superior results. Advanced noise cancelling technologies combined with ruggedized enclosures ensure that Setcom’s systems perform and last in harsh conditions.

In addition to allowing airboat crews to communicate with each other, over a cell phone, or two-way radio system, Setcom’s headsets provide vital hearing protection. With up to 23 dB of noise cancellation, Setcom’s comfortable headsets reduce noise-induced fatigue and hearing loss. Read about protecting your hearing in a recent Airboat Magazine article.

One recent Setcom customer with challenging requirements is the Texas Department of Public Safety which recently launched six heavily armed gun boats to patrol the Rio Grande River, Texas coastline, and other waterways in Texas. Dubbed the “Texas Navy”, these vessels presented significant communications challenges which Setcom’s wireless system was able to effectively handle in all situations. See a video of the boats and Setcom gear in action.
