Tuesday, May 22nd, 2018

Although the M-216 Ski Search and Rescue Helmet was released last November, Team Wendy is looking at some color options for the future.


They dipped one helmet in MultiCam Alpine and the other in Black (the lighting at the show makes the colors seem off), to see which one SOFIC-goers prefer. What do you think?

Center for New American Security – “Soldier Protection Today”

Sunday, May 13th, 2018

“Soldier Protection Today” by Center for New American Security researchers Lauren Fish and Paul Scharre examines
the state of soldier protection today – both its value and limitations.

Their findings include:
-Body armor is effective at ballistic protection.
-Such protection comes at a price, and the weight of body armor has increased substantially.
-The conservative nature of body armor standards may mean that armor is overdesigned in several respects. -This means there may be opportunities for weight savings while still addressing the most prevalent threats.
-Body armor does not provide adequate protection from blast-induced brain injury, the signature wound of today’s wars.
