“We are excited to provide this new enhanced capability to our Accolade system,” said Victor Young, vice president of mine solutions, a L-3 GSS. “The MML offers an additional means for operators to satisfy mandated safety requirements while reducing overall system costs for new ACCOLADE users.”

The L-3 Accolade system provides a self-healing, redundant, and survivable voice and data network, allowing peer-to-peer communication among miners underground and communication between below- and above-ground personnel.
