At AUSA, Revision Military unveiled their new Family of Tactical Headborne Systems which they submitted in response to USSOCOM’s requirement for a Next-Generation Helmet Program. Seen below on a mannequin set up as a 21st Century SWCC Operator, the helmet is impressive.
The core of the system is a bump helmet which can be upgraded with an appliqué offering ACH-level 9mm ballistic performance. Below, you can see the system as it will most commonly be used.
Revision’s ballistic shell has approximately .5 lbs reduction in weight from the current helmet. The helmet is also upgradable to 7.62 rifle protection with a two piece appliqué. These photos depict how the appliqué attaches to the bump helmet.
In addition to the ballistic upgrades, Revision has instituted a five size approach versus the existing four currently available sizes. This results in a better fitting helmet.
Above, you can see the rear of the helmet.
In addition to the actual helmet, Revision has introduced several accessories which include:
The removable dial fit band has been asked for by numerous users. The liner can be worn with integral over the head communications by removing the center set of pads as seen above, or the helmet’s rail can be fitted with rail adaptor Peltors.
The visor mounts to the Night Vision Shroud.
The Splash Shields attach to the NVGs and protect the eyes from debris and sea spray in a maritime environment. Revision also offers laser protective versions of the Splash Shield.
The madible’s buckle is located at the rail. When disconnected, it swings out of the way.
Notice the bungee for cable management.
