Aston Martin F1 Team and EPOS strengthen Global Audio Partnership

Aston Martin Aramco Cognizant Formula One Team today announces an extension and expansion of its partnership with EPOS, the team's Global Audio Partner.

EPOS

EPOS will continue to support on audio and communications with the team's commercial operations. Building on the existing collaboration, EPOS will also expand its technical partnership with the team. The team will now use EPOS's state-of-the-art COMMAND HME110 C3 headsets in its Mission Control strategy centre at the AMR Technology Campus.

Whether it's determining how to react to incoming rain, a red flag situation, or increased tyre degradation, racing in Formula One is underscored by complex decisions that require simple, streamlined communications. Strategy plays a vital role both on and off the circuit, and EPOS recognises that races are won or lost through real-time communication. The utilisation of the COMMAND HME110 headset as a part of the team's technical infrastructure marks a significant next step in the partnership.

Mission Control is central to the team's strategy; it is where critical data is collected and analysed, and strategy recommendations are made and executed. As it operates as the communications hub for multiple channels and teams working across different locations, time zones, and environments, it's essential that noise in Mission Control is managed effectively so that important information is seamlessly relayed.

Built to empower reliable communication in critical situations thanks to distinctive features such as premium speech intelligibility and active noise cancellation, EPOS's COMMAND HME110 C3 headset will empower Aston Martin's race engineers and strategists at Mission Control to act with unparalleled efficiency, clarity, and precision.

The COMMAND series sits within EPOS's range of customised solutions created for Air Traffic Control (ATC) and C3 (command, control, and communication) operations: empowering control and performance for when it matters most. The specially manufactured COMMAND HME110 C3 headsets will ensure the team can maintain real-time, crystal-clear communication and support split-second decision-making.

Mike Krack, Team Principal, Aston Martin F1 Team, said:

"We moved the whole team into our new AMR Technology Campus in the spring, and it has been a significant positive change for the entire organization.

"As well as a new environment, we've been able to invest in new equipment across every department, ranging from large manufacturing capability to the smallest measurement tools. One particular area where we've made considerable improvements is our new Mission Control facility.

"The opportunity to install EPOS HME110 headsets for every team member has been a great improvement. The microphones on these units are noise-cancelling, which improves the clarity of sound across the working group, and it makes a significant difference to the way we all work. Clarity of sound and clarity of thought is essential in such a high-pressure environment – and using EPOS is providing us with first-class equipment."

Jeppe Dalberg-Larsen, EPOS President, added:

"With a unified ethos for unleashing human potential via technology, innovation, and state-of-the-art engineering – our partnership with Aston Martin Aramco Cognizant Formula One Team is a natural fit. We're thrilled to expand our partnership with the team and to continue the work we've been doing to support them on their journey to the top of the grid.

"Our products are designed for seamless communication even in high-stakes moments and in a sport where each fraction of a second counts, clarity and precision are essential. We're looking forward to seeing the continued success that our products and expanded partnership can deliver to the team."
