It was a great merit that we could reduce the number of terminals that the mechanic carried around, we could lighter weight of 500g.
Also, by using Bluetooth speaker microphone together, clear calls can be made even in a noisy environment, so it was effective for communication between mechanics.
Sound quality is also not a mechanical sound like a conventional radio, it is very clear and easy to identify an individual.
While keeping the safety of passenger aircraft, in order to minimize the delay, we use it to contact mechanics.
As an example, when judging that repair or replacement is necessary during inspection, We use Buddycom to transport parts and request workers.
Also, we are using Buddycom when contacting in the noise of the airplane engine.
From the mechanic, there was a concern that there might be problems in quality and stability when changing from a dedicated radio to Buddycom, but the concern was dispelled as it was used in actual maintenance work.
It is a feature of Buddycom evolving day by day, especially we are very interested in new features such as multi group receive, speech-to-text and Transceiver translation.
