The Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) selected the Becker Avionics DVSC6100 digital audio and intercom system for the agency’s new Pilatus PC-12 Spectre fleet. The Spectre is a special-mission version of the PC-12 with a retractable sensor platform, nine-passenger utility interior and sensor operator’s console. The PC-12 is equipped with Honeywell’s Primus Apex flight deck, and the DVCS6100 replaces the Apex audio control system. The DVCS6100 serves as the audio control system not only for the pilots but also for the mission operator station in the cabin. According to Becker, the software-configurable DVCS6100 digital audio system manages up to eight transceiver and receiver channels, an integrated warning tone generator for up to eight signals, an amplifier for two cockpit speakers, interfaces for two cockpit voice recorders and a public address amplifier.
