February 23, 2010
Blacksburg, VA – February 23, 2010 – Aegisound was awarded a contract with the U.S. Navy to outfit flight deck maintainers with newly developed hearing protection. Custom molded earplugs provide dramatically improved and reliable hearing protection against the harsh noise fields encountered on flight decks. Aegisound will collect 4,000 sets of ear impressions needed to manufacture the CTE30X custom molded earplugs, and deliver and train individuals on how to use the 4,000 sets of earplugs and foam and earseal kits intended to upgrade the Navy’s legacy hearing protectors. The improvements in hearing protection offered by Aegisound’s foam and seal kits combined with the CTE30X are expected to increase the allowable noise exposure time by almost 16 times over existing legacy hearing protection.
