Warrior West -TEA Headsets – INVISIO V60-HYBRID System

Thursday, April 24th, 2014

One of the other things that caught my eye in the TEA booth is the new INVISIO V60-HYBRID System.


Designed for extreme high noise environments, the heart of this mic is a new INVISIO V60 Control with a built-in wireless module that allows users to remotely transmit on up to 2 different channels from the rail of their weapon. The V60 provides the capability of simultaneously connecting 3 different com sources (or up to 4 independant channels) and is compatibile with practically any type of 2-way radio (including the new Rifleman and MBITR2 radios), vehicle/aircraft/watercraft ICS, mobile phones or smart devices, tablets, etc.

It’s considered a hybrid design because it utilizes the INVISIO X5 dual in-ear headset with hear pro and enhanced situation awareness combined with the TEA Hybrid Rail/Lapel Mounted High Performance Boom Microphone. When connected the Hybrid Rail Boom (HRB) becomes the primary microphone for all transmissions and the advanced split audio is received in the X5 in-ear headset. The HRB utilizes a rugged high performance/noise canceling boom microphone which provides ultimate voice clarity in the most extreme high noise environments users are exposed to while operating, such as rotary wing aircraft, watercrafts or ATV’s. The rigid but flexible boom stays in place even during free fall or when exposed to high airspeeds.

Darley Defense Days – Tactical Support Equipment

Friday, April 18th, 2014


The Universal Uninterrupted Power Supply for the PRC-117G is a portable power device designed for use in the ruck, the operations center, and on vehicular platforms. Made from billet aluminum with a hard anodized Black finish, the UUPS is weather resistant and capable of operating in temperatures from -4°F to 140°F (-20°C to 60°C).


The UUPS features two power input receptacles and a built-in zero-wait switch, for connection to multiple power sources including BA-5590 batteries, worldwide AC power, and military vehicle power. The use of two BA-5590 cables allows the user to hot swap batteries for continuous radio use. What all of this means is that you can enjoy uninterrupted power to your 117 and won’t have to turn it off to swap batteries.

An auxiliary power port also allows the UUPS to power external devices such as loudspeakers, handheld radios, and network devices. The aux connector interfaces with standard speaker power cables from Harris.
