Velocity Systems Obtains a United States Patent for their Versatile Protective Helmet Appliqué Assembly

Dulles, VA – April 11, 2017 – Velocity Systems, a provider of high performing armor solutions, has been granted a second patent regarding the Versatile Protective Helmet Appliqué. The Versatile Protective Helmet Appliqué Assembly permits a helmet wearer to upgrade the ballistic prevention capabilities of a traditional helmet quickly and efficiently. The helmet appliqué can be provided as part of a helmet appliqué system and/or assembly that includes internal-side connection means for attaching to a helmet and external-side connection means for receiving any of various external items such as identification tags, mounts and external equipment or attachments. The appliqué element can comprise various types of material, including, for example, ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene (UHMWPE).

The first helmet appliqué patent acknowledges a cutout for a night vision google mount and goggles. The second patent takes the innovative principle of the first patent a step further to include multiple helmet appliqué elements employed on the same helmet. This includes surfaces and portions that are cooperatively engageable for covering multiple areas of the helmet at the same time. Velocity Systems is committed to focusing on R&D efforts to continue to develop innovative lifesaving products.
