INVISIO to equip US Army’s new Security Force Assistance Brigades with communication and hearing protection systems

Stockholm, December 28, 2017

INVISIO has received an order concerning deliveries to the US Army’s new specialized unit Security Force Assistance Brigades (SFAB). The order is valued SEK 10 million and connects to the previous order of SEK 20 million announced on December 4, 2017, amounting to a total order value of about SEK 30 million. Deliveries will take place during the first half of 2018.

The order includes communications system with control units and headsets for use with a radio. By ensuring a good hearing protection while the wearer can communicate and maintain situational awareness, the INVISIO systems address the Army’s modernization initiatives and provides Soldiers with the tactical advantage necessary to achieve mission success.

“We are proud to deliver our advanced communication systems to new units within the US Armed Forces. INVISIO’s systems are world leading in its segment and with this order we are strengthening our position further,” said Lars Højgård Hansen, CEO of INVISIO.

The Security Force Assistance Brigades are specialized units whose core mission is to conduct advise-and-assist operations with allied and partner nations. Soldiers in SFABs are highly trained and will help brigade combat teams build readiness by freeing them from advisory missions.

    Must be nice to be the CSA’s pet project… Meanwhile line units with a METL struggle to keep enough Peltors up.

      They’re deploying and are specifically designed to serve the need of the fight we’re in. They’re also significantly smaller and easier to equip than BCT’s, which, you know, was kind of the point.

      If it looks like a force on force near peer fight is imminent, the focus on SFABs will diminish, or more accurately, they will be plussed up into actual BCTs to join the maneuver force, which is also part of their design.

      In the meantime we’ll be fine running around Area J without the latest and greatest in communication equipment.

    What jacket and carrier is the guy on the right wearing? Just curious…

    • Jim says:

      It looks like he’s a Brit going by the MTP pattern and cut, therefore it’s a Virtus scalable vest, made by SOURCE

    Seriously… every time I see them getting all this stuff, it makes me wonder what their actual mission is or if they even know. But hey I guess a brigade staff advisory element needs AVS and INVISIO kit.

  5. Joe says:

    SFAB we’re just like SFG

  6. Bill says:

    Lulz. They are TCAPS. I was signed for 33 sets of these back at Campbell. I bet they are on half the commenters books here and they have no clue.

    Just keep counting them during inventories, turbo.

    Everyone’s always worried about what everyone else is doing. Buncha Kardashian-level drama llamas in here.

  7. Che Guevara's Open Chest Wound says:

    Yeah, but are they gonna get the pinks-and-greens first?

  8. Eric B says:

    I’ve got no dog in the fight here, but what’s with all the animosity leveled at the SFAB concept and people?

    • mine bigger than yours says:

      It’s the holier than thou crowd that usually comments on this site. All they’re going to bring up is the SFAB is being issued a greenish beret with a SOF flash on it and a patch that looks like an arrowhead

      That’s really about it
