Research Institution
In this Phase II effort, Zeteo will further develop over-the-ear and in-ear canine hearing protection device prototypes. These devices will combine passive hearing protection with active noise cancelation. The devices will also have a communication channel to allow the handler to communicate with the dog. Design requirements evolved from Phase I will be used to design over-ear and in-ear configurations that are capable of dealing with the challenges of the military noise and communication environments. Prototype systems with user interface will be built based on these designs and the system performance will be optimized during Phase II. The performance of Zeteo's hearing protection systems will be enhanced during the Phase I option. Advanced control strategies will be tested and two additional prototypes will be produced in the option period.
