Staff Sgt. Edward Todd, 8th Medical Operations Squadron dental laboratory technician, inserts a tube into the ear of Capt. Patricia Hays, 8th Medical Operations Squadron aerospace and operational physiologist, to make an inner-ear mold for the Attenuating Custom Communications Earpiece System at Kunsan Air Base, Republic of Korea, Jan. 9, 2017. The ACCES device will significantly reduce surrounding ambient noise that pilots hear in the cockpit and increase the efficiency of radio communications.
