CJ Component Products is pleased to announce the introduction of the ‘CJ Command Speaker-Microphone Series’ to our tactical communication product line. Offered in military, tactical and security versions, all of the CJ Command Speaker-Microphones have a built-in audio jack, allowing for a variety of optional external earphones, providing quiet listening capabilities.

Meeting with soldiers of the US Army JTRS HMS team, I was able to have some good follow-up discussions regarding what is needed, what is wanted and what would is best for the ‘supplied audio’ with the HSM Rifleman Radio, as well as other currently used radios in Afghanistan and Iraq. Audio accessories have become very personal, from soldier to soldier. To offer an accessory out of the box as a ‘supplied with radio accessory’, the speaker-microphone was discussed as a possible product to use. CJ will design, modify the interface and supply samples to the US Army for field evaluation. All samples provided will come with the optional clear tube external earphone, which offers quiet listening capabilities.

The military version has been designed around the small radio format, such as the JTRS HMS Rifleman, Falcon III or Motorola. Lightweight, small profile and with a clear tube external earphone, CJ’s Command Speaker-Microphone" meets the basic communication needs of the soldier at the squad level. Design also includes keeping the price point lower than competitors for high production to achieve selection as the audio accessory supplied with the HMS radio.

In conjunction with other tactical audio products available from CJ Component Products, available audio accessory choice is provided as an integrated solution for the most demanding applications. CJ Component Products has designed and supplied audio accessories for radio systems worldwide, including Harris, ITT, Codan, Barrett and Thales.
