About this project
We here at Cybernetic Research laboratories, Inc., located in Tucson AZ, are very excited to share our newest concept with you and are eager to collect the necessary funding in order to take this product into full scale production. We have the machines and everything else required to manufacture this project right here in America, all we need is funding for material and labor.
MANUFACTURED AND SHIPPED FROM RIGHT HERE IN THE USA!
The Tactical Whistle is a modern, effective, military grade, durable, whistle to be used in case of emergency, aid in survival, disaster preparedness, crime prevention, campus safety, and more. The Tactical Whistle was an idea to re-invent the ordinary safety whistle, make it louder, stronger, resistant to corrosion (for marine use), portable, securable, beautifully designed and cosmetically appealing to the eye.
The Tactical Whistle was designed here in our own facility by Cybernetic Research design engineers. Using technology and advanced machinery we were able to produce the design into a tangible, functional, very useful object, and we want to share it with you!

The ‘three flute’ design provides three specific frequencies designed to increase sound levels over distance, cut through background noise caused by weather, rushing water, air and ground traffic, and other distracting noises. The primary central frequency of 3150 Hz is per government regulations as providing the most piercing sound over the widest range of detrimental conditions. The higher and lower frequencies are designed to fill the overall acoustical profile at frequencies between the primary 3150 Hz output and its various harmonics both above and below the primary.
The whistle is two piece construction with no moving parts. Nothing to lose and no “rattle”.
The small, low volume profile incorporates a graduated air passage designed to reduce the amount of exhalation effort required to generate an audible whistle signal. A person can blow this whistle for longer periods without exhaustion as opposed to some competitors offerings.
The rugged outer shell is provided with a stepped knurled surface to improve grip in the whistle body in cold, wet or icy conditions.
The whistle body is durable against heat, cold and crushing force and will provide life-long serviceability.
Our company engineers, designs, and produces, with standards that comply with both the aerospace requirements for AS9100 and to many military specifications (MIL) that are listed below:
AS9100 (C) - Quality Management Systems – Requirements for Aviation, Space, and Defense
MIL C 5541 F (E) - Chemical Conversion Coatings on Aluminum and Aluminum Alloys
MIL P 53022 B - Primer, Epoxy Coating, Corrosion Inhibiting, Lead and Chromate Free
MIL STD 130 (T) - Identification and Marking Parts and Assemblies
MIL STD 889 Galvanic Table – Corrosion Control
ISO 9001 (E) - Quality Management Systems – Requirements
ASTM A 484 / A 484M – 10 (2010) Stainless Steel Bars
ASTM A 564 / A 564M – 10 (2010) Hot-rolled and Cold Finished Age-Hardening Stainless Steel Bars and Shapes
The Tactical Whistle will be 2-3/4” long, 9/16” diameter, and the weights are as followed:
Aluminum : 14.6 gm
Stainless Steel : 43.1 gm
Titanium : 25.5 gm
Brass: 40.1 gm
The Tactical Whistle will be available in three different material types, Aluminum, Stainless steel, and Titanium. the Aluminum will be available in four different colors: Clear (silver), Black, Olive Drab Green (OD green), and red.
Thank you in advance! We can hardly express our gratitude for your support in our project and sharing this journey of engineering with us!
Risks and challenges
We will face manufacturing type challenges, including special tooling that will be required in order to make the whistle producible and functional. We will also have to come up with a final test system for analyzing the final product. It is a complicated machining job because the whistle is circular and details are on every face of the part.
We will face CNC programing challenges, frequency stability analysis situations, The fipple alignment has to go in perfectly because being a tri vented fipple it has to be aligned PERFECTLY inside the chamber and pressed all the way home, special tooling and fixtures will be required to do this right every time. If it is not done right it will effect the outcome negatively.
How are we going to over come it?
We have full time engineers, manufacturing engineers, quality engineers, CNC programmers and design engineers to over come these obstacles and create solutions that will work every time. With kickstarters help we can buy the special tooling needed and make a quality product.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
We were definitely trying to fix this, but kickstarter would only allow us to include one international shipping price and since we lost out pretty hard with the Nano Cache on high shipping to the UK and Asia we decided on what we have now. So unfortunately the shipping price will stand as is. We will try to work around this on the next project if we ever dicide to do another :)
