Microphone Headsets…Peltor® No Longer RestrictedPosted: 2012/30/10
Between November 2010 and May 2011, conventional Army units submitted more than 850 requisitions for the Peltor® COMTAC III™ microphone headset. All the requisitions were rejected.
The Army’s Rapid Equipping Force (REF) looked into the problem and here’s what they found: The source of supply (SOS) code for the headsets was F56. That’s an SOS maintained and used only by Special Operations Forces. That’s why requests from outside of special forces were rejected.
REF succeeded in making the Peltor® headsets available to all Army units. Now the Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) manages the headsets. They carry an SOS code of SMS.
Here’s what you can order:
|Single or dual
|7941||single||olive drab||Comes with one PTT.|
|7829||single||coyote brown||Comes with one PTT.|
|7946||dual||olive drab||Comes with two PTTs.|
|7797||dual||coyote brown||Comes with two PTTs.|
You can also order a spare boom microphone with NSN 5965-01-572-7803.
