Savox Communications Launches the ImP Maritime Mobile Platform Intercom in North America at the International Workboat Show 2012

Savox Communications is proud to launch the ImP MV maritime IP based command and control system in North America at the International Workboat Show 2012 in New Orleans. ImP already has a track record of deployment with Lifeboat, Rescue, Military and Special Forces teams in Europe and increasing demand sees the launch in North America.

ImP MV Maritime IP Based Command and Control System

ImP MV Maritime IP Based Command and Control System The ImP Marine Variant IP mobile platform addresses many of the conventional maritime intercom shortcomings by providing high quality speech in the open boat environment and total control over the communications landscape. The ImP system is software defined and programmable for maximum flexibility, is easy to use and install and is modular to match various configuration requirements.

At the heart of the solution is a digital, 100Mb Ethernet backbone. This data highway allows transmission of both voice and data and allows integration with navigation aids, engine management systems and video to facilitate complete command and control of the vessel.

ImP features a man wearable Personal control Unit (PCU) making the ‘man’ the communication interface, not the platform. The PCU allows the operator to take control over their voice communications environment with simple and easy to use intuitive controls aided by voice prompts which can also be programmed into local languages. Each user has instant access to two radio PTT’s and is able to operate multiple radios via simple and easy to use menus which can be operated with one hand whilst wearing gloves and travelling at high speeds in rough sea states.

The ImP has an adaptive VoX algorithm allowing high quality voice operated communication on open boats whilst travelling at high speeds on open seas. All system units are compact and ergonomic ensuring they can be installed behind vessel bulkheads or transoms, with minimal impact on crew space.

Configurable and scalable, for example for small crews or large vessels, ImP is user configurable and has no system master meaning easy and quick set up.

Carl Morse, Vice President of Savox Communications, adds “We have had much success with the ImP Maritime Version in Europe and after seeing increasing demand from ‘across the pond’, have decided to launch in North America. Our success in Europe has validated our belief that there is a significant gap in the market for a lightweight, robust maritime communication solution and with ImP setting new standards for communications for small and medium vessels are confident of success.”
