Norwegian wireless intercom technology innovator Axnes is introducing a trade-up programme to upgrade existing Polycon wireless intercom systems (ICS) to the new generation digital Polycon Next Generation (PNG) wireless intercom for Leonardo AW139 owners and operators.

Following a developmental STC programme with a large US parapublic AW139 operator, Axnes has received FAA STC approval for the conversion. The programme involved an initial retrofit for the AW139 as a proof of concept that led to a fleet replacement under the STC authorisation.

The new Axnes PNG wireless ICS enables line of sight wireless communication with full AES 256 grade encryption for secure transmission as well as rugged and versatile components. A complete PNG system consists of an installed base station, control panel, charging station and capabilities for multiple wireless transceivers. Axnes offers two handset options with either the MP50 or MP30. Each handset offers GPS positioning, lithium batteries and UHF capability. Additionally, the MP50 is waterproof and dual band capable with both UHF and VHF (marine) frequencies.

A trade-up programme is available to convert Polycon wireless intercom equipped aircraft with the advanced PNG wireless intercom system through significantly discounted equipment and handsets. Technical support for the Axnes owned STC can also be provided upon request.
