Created to keep personnel safe, Outacom allows the operator to:

  • Direct, command and control the immediate locale from within the vehicle
  • Protect vehicle personnel from the enemy - no requirement to expose head to communicate
  • Safer control of crowd dispersal and area clearance
  • Reduced probability of unnecessary escalation of violence
