Spartanat – TILO Challenge

Tilo Challenge 1

TILO CHALLENGE – Thermals for 3 months

Together with ANDRES INDUSTRIES and SPARTANAT, Soldier Systems wants you to test the TILO thermal device intensively for three months!

What other manufacturer would do this with a €5,000device? The device could be damaged, couldn’t it? Yeah, it could be, but it’s a TILO. TILOs don’t break. If there is something on the TILO that can break, it is the manufacturer’s fault and ANDRES INDUSTRIES takes over the damage. That’s their offer:

Tilo Challenge 2

What comes from ANDRES INDUSTRIES?

ANDRES INDUSTRIES provides one of our newest TILO-Z+ (incl. accessories: helmet holder, head holder, bag etc.) free of charge for 3 months.

Target groups: swat teams, special forces.
The application: The users should use the TILOs daily and of course also at night.

What do we want from the user?

Hard work = tough report! Show us what you can do with the TILO! The following topics, for example, can be considered:
– Experience with the technology
– What are the advantages of TILO in use?
– Description of activity/unit/department
– A short story of an operation in which the TILO could be helpful.
– if possible some pictures or even film shots
– permission for this material to be shown by us and on SPARTANAT and Soldier Systems Daily and may also be used for our marketing. Or the permission to link to the report, which should of course also be available for a longer period of time.
– Explanation of the functions of the TILO

Who can apply as a tester?

– Anyone who works in one of the areas mentioned above or who successfully explains to us why he is the one who can best put our TILO through its paces.
– Of course also companies, authorities or units
– For this action 5x TILO-3Z with the latest software are available. ANDRES INDUSTRIES AG reserves the right to select the participants. Legal recourse is excluded.

What do I have to do to get a device to test for 3 months?

Fill in an end user statement and give a description about:
– the planned deployment
– the format of the report. E.g. text, pictures, video, feature-length film etc.
– it is helpful, if already exemplary productions (YouTube, Blogs etc.) are available (URL requested). Of course, we are interested in the highest quality reports possible.
– if there are persons depicted, do they have pixelated faces? If unpixeled, short explanation how their personal rights are considered. Like a statement that you’re okay with it.

Tilo Challenge 3

ELCAN and mounts for other target optics?

Participants also receive the necessary camera adapters from ACTinBlack.

What happens if the TILO is damaged during the test?

The TILO is indestructible, but if one breaks down, we will cover the costs:
– this does not apply to deliberate destruction.
– this does not apply to loss.

What’s the reward?

Whoever delivers the best report can keep his TILO-3Z+!
The second best gets a TILO-3Z!
For third place there is a 30 percent discount for the purchase of a TILO together with accessories.

    Cue the flood gates of “operators” emailing to get their hands on one.

    Wishing you the best in finding invaluable end-users – pretty awesome way to get feedback.

    After kicking this around for awhile, I need to get in contact and shoot an email over. The intrigue is… intriguing.

    For all you US-based guys, it will be interesting to see what export control hoops (if any) you’ll have to jump through if Andres exports this unit to you.
