UK Virtus program

The latest issue of the British Army’s Soldier Magazine featured an article on the Virtus Program, including details on the kit.  In the US, we have the Soldier Protection System program which is quite similar to Virtus.  Among the gear displayed, you can see Revision’s Cobra Plus Helmet system and Sawfly Military Eyewear.

Additionally, Revision Military has released the following info on their involvement in the Virtus Program:

Revision Military, a world leader in protective soldier solutions, has won the head sub-systems portion of the contract awarded to Source Vagabond Systems Ltd., to provide UK Troops with new kit as part of the Virtus program. The custom head protection solution, known as the Batlskin Cobra Plus, offers an ultra-lightweight helmet that exceeds the UK’s stringent ballistic and impact requirements and can be coupled with the Modular Protective Attachment System (MPAS) for full face protection. In addition, the Sawfly Spectacle and WolfSpider Goggle Systems will be provided for use when full-face coverage is not required.

The first deliveries of Cobra Plus head protection systems are planned to be shipped quickly with 9,000 full systems scheduled for Fall 2015 enabling fielding to first-recipient troops in early 2016.

Stay tuned for more info as it becomes available.

Vectronix Introduces New Corporate Logo

Wednesday, July 1st, 2015

I’m sure you’ve heard of Vectronix and you’ve probably heard of Safran. If Safran isn’t familiar, maybe you know about Sagem’s French Future Soldier System, Felin? That’s them. The players are all heavy hitters in the defense industry and they’ve been affiliated with one another for some time. This is just a long overdue update to corporate imaging.

Heerbrugg, Switzerland and Bedford, New Hampshire, USA


Vectronix, a leading observation and precision targeting solutions provider, officially unveiled a newly redesigned logo and brand identity today to better reflect its affiliation as a Safran company. The new logo amplifies the synergy of both companies and their continuing commitment to provide world-class solutions to fulfill mission requirements for all customers. The new brand identity will be integrated into a comprehensive new website and across all Vectronix marketing material in the months ahead.

Vectronix has been part of the Sagem group since 2003. In May 2005, Sagem merged with Snecma, the aerospace propulsion and equipment group, to form the Safran Group. Vectronix has been a subsidiary of Safran as part of its Optronics and Defense Division for the past 10 years, producing a long history of success. With the introduction of the new company branding, Vectronix will continue to offer its well-known portfolio of observation and targeting handhelds and introduce the Sagem portfolio to the U.S. defense industry.

Morgan Advanced Materials And Tyr Tactical Announce Armor System Passes NIJ Level III Certification Testing Requirements

Tuesday, June 16th, 2015

Morgan Advanced Materials has recently announced that their hard armor system, in conjunction with Tyr Tactical’s soft armor system, has passed the NIJ 0101.06 Level III certification standards. The full release can be read below:


Morgan Advanced Materials hard armor, in-conjunction with Tyr Tactical’s soft armor system, has successfully passed the ballistic, durability, and environmental requirements of the NIJ 0101.06 Level III certification process. Full NIJ certification is pending, with completion expected this summer. With a 10-inch x 12-inch plate weighing 2 pounds and just over ¾-inch thick, the modular and scalable system provides substantial weight and thickness advantages over stand-alone plates.

The system consists of a Lightweight Buoyant LWBIII+ rifle plate developed by Morgan’s Composites and Defence Systems business with Tyr Tactical’s T52/SP or T54/C soft armor. In addition to the NIJ Level III threat, the Level III+ system is capable of stopping a variety of rifle threats, including 7.62 millimeter (mm) ball rounds, 7.62mm mild steel core (AK47) rounds and 5.56mm ball rounds (M193 and LE223T3).

The ultra-lightweight, high performance hard plate insert which is manufactured from the latest generation durable composite technology is extremely hard wearing and designed specifically for the rugged environments faced by military and security personnel. The products are available to law enforcement, security, and military/defense customers.

The rifle plates, soft armor, and full system are available in the US through Tyr Tactical’s facility in Peoria, Arizona. It is available in Canada through Millbrook Tactical, located in Stittsville, Ontario.
