The Tactical Communication and Protective System (TCAPS) is a specific application program within PEO Soldier and the Project Management Office Soldier Warrior. It fields concurrent hearing protection and auditory situational awareness devices to Soldiers to increase hearing readiness and reduce hearing damage/subsequent post-service hearing disabilities resulting from high noise exposure for combat Soldiers.
TCAPS provides concurrent hearing protection and auditory situational awareness. Historically, Soldiers have had to choose between hearing protection and force protection. As a combat force multiplier, TCAPS maintains hearing protection while enabling Soldier to use existing tactical radio resulting in increased mission effectiveness, safety, and survivability.
