Always Connected to the Emergency Dept.

DZMx Air Medical & SAR solution

The Flightcell DZMx air medical & Search And Rescue (SAR) solution allow aircrew and the ED to be in constant contact and to share patient status information. Voice and data is transmitted over a cellular network when in range, or over satellite in remote locations. Handover between cellular and satellite is seamless for tracking which provides significant cost saving when compared to satellite only transmission.

The DZMx Remote Head provides up to two additional control heads that can be used from multiple locations within the aircraft.

DZMx SAR provides the following features:

  • Track the precise search path using Truepath©
  • Night vision NVIS-A and NVIS-B (STD) compliant
  • Group Push to Talk (PTT) comms

Bristow UK Search and Rescue (SAR) operate a fleet of Sikorsky S-92 and AgustaWestland 189 helicopters from 10 bases in the UK. They talk directly to casualties on the ground and receive outstanding support from Flightcell.


Customer Story

DZMx Air Medical provides the following features:

  • Remote heads for medical crew voice calls
  • Medical crew transmit vital sign information back to base
  • Medical crew receive patient history data en-route
  • Emergency Dept monitor the exact location & ETA


“We chose the Flightcell’s DZM systems because crystal clear communications and uninterrupted tracking can make the difference between life and death when operating Search and Rescue.”

“As soon as we were presented with the Flightcell DZMx we leapt on the opportunity to install the smaller and lighter unit for our new twin engine BK117. Our costs are lightweight too – as the cellular connection has slashed our voice, data and tracking costs significantly!”

“As well as compact size, the Flightcell DZMx includes game-changing technology and we can customise the product for our exact needs. Once again the forward thinking developers at Flightcell have gone way beyond what we as customers thought we needed.”
