Welcome to IWCS – About us
Clear and uninterrupted communication is in many cases a mandatory requirement for getting the job done, and especially in mission critical situations being able to communicate effortless and with both hands free is making a world of difference.
At IWCS we are dedicated to develop advanced and user-friendly solutions providing our professional customers trouble-free communication even under the most demanding conditions whether it is for SAR, Coast Guard or Tactical operations.
To become a leading supplier on the market, IWCS benefits from an active Advisory Board with highly profiled members from High End production, International Sales and former Samsung / Nokia COOs, which is an asset in the strategi of the future IWCS.
We are living in times when features and product development are not our only responsibility. We at IWCS are working with United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, in order to lift our share of the burden, of making the world a better place.

IWCS Unique Solutions
Over the years, by servicing customers like Search & Rescue teams, Firefighters, Navy/Marine and helicopter rescue services world wide, we have become well aware of the special nature of these people’s daily challenges. We have listened to them and designed our products to meet their specific needs.
In IWCS we have our own electronics and mechanical designers, and our solutions are designed and engineered all the way from initial drawings to selecting the boxes products are shipped in. Our well equipped facilities include CNC controlled machinery for prototyping and production of small volume, customer specific units.
Besides our standard products in the iriSound and iriComm families, we can also provide customer specific solutions and turnkey projects. We have in-house test facilities allowing us to simulate depths down to 50m, and can offer product development to meet very unique offshore and sub-surface requirements – e.g. customized diver-to-diver and diver-to-surface communication systems.
