The Lynx II Translator is a ruggedized, modular system which was specifically designed and built to satisfy the demanding requirements of Two-Way Speech-to-Speech (2WSTS) Translation software during field use. This system features a lightweight CPU module, a wearable Speaker/Microphone, and an external battery. It is an extremely flexible platform that allows the soldier to remain situationally aware while communicating across a language barrier in real world field conditions.

High Powered Ruggedized Speaker/Microphone Module: The Lynx II provides unmatched speech-to-speech translation accuracy, ease of use and functionality. This is accomplished by using a six element, far-field phased array microphone with “follow-the-speaker” technology. This gives reliable speech recognition in real-world environments out to a safety stand off range of 5-10 feet from the user. A powerful flat panel speaker driven by a 15 watt digital amplifier is integrated into this module so the warfighter can be heard. The Speaker/Microphone module is rated IP54 when in use for increased reliability.

Ruggedized, Lightweight Design: The Lynx II is designed to be worn by a soldier and operated in an eyes-free, hands-free mode. It is ruggedized to meet the demands for tactical military use and features a low-power CPU for extended battery life.

Nett Warrior Compatibility: The Lynx II is fully compatible with the Nett Warrior system through use of the Personal Area Network (PAN) specification and use of Nett Warrior batteries. Additional accessories can be added to the Lynx II solution, including: Headsets, PAN USB to VGA Displays, HMMWV Adapters, and an external docking station can be connected to allow adding an external monitor, mouse and keyboard increasing its flexibility.

2WSTS Software Vendor Neutrality: The Lynx II platform supports full eyes free versions of 2WSTS translation software—from any vendor thus enabling the user to choose the best software for his specific application.

The Lynx II is available with an Iraqi Arabic, Pashto, or Dari language pack.
