USSOCOM Awards Contract To Gentex For Advancement Of Headborne Systems Technologies

It appears that USSOCOM has issued multiple contracts in response to their Broad Agency Announcement issued earlier this year to refine requirements for the next generation SOF helmet. The latest award is to Gentex, and we assume, much of the work to be accomplished by their Ops-Core business unit. The BAA can be seen below.

    Does the comms model not have the RAC headset because SOCOM units will be using peltors instead of them? Is that component not part of the contract?

    I think it’s quite old graphic before they even thought about the RAC.

    So, can we get some RAC yet or what???
