3D Audio Now Offered as Standard with Orbit’s Orion™ Airborne Audio Management System

3D Audio boosts pilots’ situational awareness, reduces workload and increases flight safety

Netanya, Israel, March 21, 2017 – Orbit Communications Systems Ltd. (TASE: ORBI), a leading provider of precision tracking-based communications solutions and airborne audio management systems, announced today that 3D Audio is now being offered as standard with the Orion airborne audio management system.

Orion’s 3D Audio delivers a 360-degree clear audio experience with significant benefits for pilots, including increased situational awareness and flight safety, as well as reduced workload and fatigue. Applications include radio separation, crew positioning, directional safety alerts and real-time threat alerts aligned to the pilot’s line-of-sight.

Orbit’s Orion™ Airborne Audio Management System

3D Audio technology uses advanced binaural and psycho-acoustic principles to provide directional audio delivered into the ears of the pilot, so that the spatial position of the sound source can be located.

“We are seeing increased demand for 3D Audio across the industry and believe it will become a standard requirement in future airborne audio systems,” stated Max Gadot, Director of Product Marketing, Airborne Communication Solutions at Orbit. “The excitement shown by pilots who experienced Orion’s 3D Audio capability encouraged us to include it as a standard feature today.”

To experience Orbit’s 3D Audio technology first-hand, visit us at “Army Aviation”, April 26-28, 2017, in Nashville, TN, USA, booth 2323 – or at “HeliRussia”, May 25-27, 2017, in Moscow, booth 1G.
