Oleg Vornik, DroneShield’s CEO, commented “DroneShield is grateful for continued substantial support for its global sales from the Australian Government, through its earlier announced Defence Export Strategy. Through the Military Sales Catalogue, defence trade show hosting with Team Defence Australia, and the incredible assistance we receive from the Australian embassies globally, we are excited to continue delivering on our strategy of being an Australian headquartered global leader in drone countermeasures.”

Holosun Solar Failsafe

December 14th, 2018

City of Industry, CA – Raising the bar once again, Holosun is pleased to introduce one of its newest innovations, Solar Failsafe. This technology utilizes ambient light to keep weapon sights running in the event the batteries fail. Whether using natural or artificial light, models equipped with this feature keep users in the fight or in the field until the job is done.

While all Holosun optics boast an impressive 50,000-hour battery life, all batteries eventually fail. Ensuring that their optics won’t fail at a critical moment, when the shot matters most, optics equipped with Solar Failsafe use the power of ambient lighting to stay powered on until the user can safely stop to replace their batteries. Because Solar Failsafe uses light from the environment to keep the reticle powered on the brightness of the reticle changes with the amount of light available, so users can be assured their optic will always be as bright, or as dim, as the situation demands.

Users can have peace of mind knowing that their weapon sight is always ready and always on for any application. Whether it’s a hunter who can’t miss their one shot, a soldier or officer who can’t put combat on hold to change batteries, or the average citizen preparing for a situation where batteries may become scarce, Solar Failsafe has their backs. There’s already enough to think about when working with a firearm, optics’ batteries shouldn’t be among them.

Several Holosun weapon sights are equipped with the optional Solar Failsafe technology and can be found in the company catalog. They also may feature other innovative technologies designed to extend battery life such as the Multiple Reticle System, Super Green L.E.D., and Shake Awake. Models featuring Solar Failsafe are on sale today and can be purchased through authorized Holosun retailers.

Marine Corps Awards OTAs to Assess Handheld Targeting Capabilities

December 14th, 2018

Marine Corps Systems Command has awarded four Other Transaction Authorities to assess industry’s capability to produce a Next Generation Handheld Targeting System that is compact, rugged and lightweight.

The use of OTAs were approved by Congress in 2016 as a procurement method to pay for prototypes and to use nontraditional defense companies to spur innovation.

The OTAs were awarded to BAE Systems, Elbit Systems of America, Fraser Optics and Northrop Grumman Systems Corporation. The four companies will explore possibilities focused on the following criteria:

-The system’s overall ergonomics for supporting forward deployed, foot mobile users
-Target recognition, location and designation ranges during day and night operations
-The ability to integrate the system with the Target Handoff System Version 2 to view and manipulate target information
-Technological maturity, manufacturability and value engineering
-Sustainability at the operational user level

The Next Generation Handheld Targeting System, or NGHTS, is a single, lightweight, man-portable system that enables Marines to quickly acquire targets; perform guidance of against targets; and generate target location data during combat operations.

“During the first phase, the four awarded companies will explore potential system capabilities and provide Marine Corps Systems Command with an in-depth study of the best solution for our Marines at the best price,” said Megan Full, contract specialist supporting Program Manager Fires at MCSC. “We will collect the findings by the second quarter of fiscal year 2019 and choose one or more vendors to move onto phase two where they will develop and demonstrate prototypes.”

Currently, the Marine Corps uses four legacy systems: the Portable Lightweight Designator Rangefinder, Joint Terminal Attack Controller, Laser Target Designator and Thermal Laser Spot Imager. The intent is for NGHTS to replace all four systems.

“For the last four years, we have worked diligently to explore an option that condenses the legacy versions into one lightweight system with a reliable power supply that is rugged enough to throw onto a Marine’s pack,” said Jeff Nebel, Fire Support Coordination Team lead, PM Fires.

“The NGHTS will combine all of the legacy capabilities into one system that is compatible with both current and future fire support systems, and will support the Marine Corps for the next 15 to 20 years.”

“The NGHTS will be an important advancement because it is planned to reduce the current weight of the laser designation and laser spot imaging capability by 60 percent, which will increase the mobility and lethality of our fire support-focused Marines,” said Maj. Nathan Morales, Targeting Systems project officer, PM Fires. “This capability is focused on our ability to fight in the compartmentalized terrain outlined in the Marine Operating Concept.”
