Optically Driven Earplug
Agency / Branch:
DOD / NAVY
Optical coupling to an active earplug removes the wire link needed for conventional wired active earplugs. This improves ease of don and doff, eliminates potential snag hazards of a wire link and removes EMI or TEMPEST concerns with a wire link. Inaddition, there is no problem with radio interference or crosstalk that might be caused by an RF wireless link. The optical drive technology should be adaptable to various communications or hearing protection environments in which a circumaural device suchas an earmuff or helmet is used in addition to an earplug.
