T:Worx – I-Rail

SPC Joshua Harris, A CO/1-29 Infantry is firing a carbine outfitted with the latest version of the Intelligent Rail or I-Rail, developed by T:Worx, a subsidiary of Prototype Productions.

It is a Picatinny standard, Weapon Accessory Power and Data Rail. Below, you can see an older variant. There is a short cable that runs across the lower receiver to the grip which attaches further to the batteries contained in the collapsible butt stock.

In addition to providing power to weapon accessories, I-Rail is capable of connecting those accessories to the network through the Nett Warrior end user device and Soldier radio.

I-Rail is one of the technologies undergoing evaluation by US and British Army Soldiers during the 2017 Advanced Expeditionary Warfighting Experiment at Ft Benning, GA.

Here is Cpl Craig Gordon, 1st Battalion the Royal Anglian Regiment (The Vikings), moving across a linear danger area during Pilot Mission 1. As you can see, T:Worx has adapted the design to more incorporate more modern features. Gone are the permanent Pic rails at the 3,6,9 and 12 positions.

      Unfortunately due to the lack of medium helmets a lot of guys are getting Miss sized for helmets this guy probably needs a medium but got a large also there a lack of helmet covers in the system for the new helmets which explains the use of scrim it’s a revision viper helmet comes with various bits like visors for vehicle drivers etc

        Bobby,
        While you are correct about supply not often issuing correct sized helmets,and usually not having Med size, there are(tho not many know this) TWO different size helmet PAD sets.
        The first, and most well known is the ‘default’ 3/4″ pad size. The next size is 1″, and made to help correct ‘helmet flop’. It also, for some-like me-even though I DO have several correctly sized & fitted helmet shells,helps if I run 2 oblong and 1 trapezoidal pad in front sized 3/4″, and the same config in the rear,only with the 1″ pads.
        While I don’t have the NSN’s for you and other SSD readers at the moment, I am sure SSD or Jon (OPT) can help out if you are interested.

        All that being said, the last pic is of a Brit and their Helmet,whatever model/designation it is called.
        Even so,IT looks big, and maybe HIS S-4 needs to resize him,lol.

        I hope this information helps you,and any other readers here at SSD who might not have known about helmet pad sizing-I didnt for the longest time.

      Ummmmm…..he’s British. That’s just how their helmets look. This is a joint Anglo-American T&E exercise.

        He’s lucky he’s even got a revision helmet. I’ve not had a helmet on my kit list for a year. I had to buy my own

    Not sure about KAC upper but definitely a URX 4 Mlok
