The Composites and Defence Systems business of Morgan Advanced Materials has been awarded the Canadian CM735 Combat Helmet contract. The improved helmet features an innovative ultra-lightweight hybrid composite structure, the result of more than three years of materials research and development and achieves outstanding ballistic performance at an extraordinarily low weight. Morgan’s extensive capabilities have supplied over one million combat helmets as part of the company’s LASA (Lightweight Armored Soldier Architecture) line of products.

Constructed using world leading lightweight composite materials, Morgan’s hybrid composite helmet technology delivers outstanding helmet performance for fragmentation and ballistic protection with improved structural integrity while providing high levels of flame resistance.

The helmet also features Morgan’s latest ballistic and fragment composite technology, which helps to avoid severe injury from back face deformation and dynamic impact to the user’s head when the shell is hit by fragments.

Morgan’s new CM735 Canadian shell provides very high levels of ballistic performance with weight savings of approximately 23 percent over the existing CG634 shell with a weight of less than 920 grams (32 ounces).

“Morgan is honoured to be providing the Canadian Forces with their next generation lightweight ballistic helmet,” said Composites and Defence Systems North America Business Manager James Kempston. “Morgan’s CM735 solution uses the latest composite technology, providing increased protection for substantially less weight. With nearly 25 percent weight reduction it is truly a game changing helmet in an environment where reduced burden is directly related to increased user performance and decreased fatigue.”

November 12, 2015 – Camero Tech – a world leader and pioneer in the development and marketing of radar-based through-wall systems – will demonstrate the new 3D capability for its XAVER400 Through-Wall Imaging System at the upcoming Milipol 2015 exhibition. The new capability enables differentiating between people and other moving objects, and gives a clearer understanding of people’s positions through the wall.

According to Camero’s CEO, Amir Beeri, “The addition of the 3D capability to the XAVER400 adds more tools and information for the commander in the field to use in making decisions regarding whether or not to enter a room or a building. Incorrect decisions can be very dangerous, and every additional piece of information in the hands of the commander reduces the chance of casualties.”


The XAVER400 is a compact, lightweight and durable personal device optimized for the speed of tactical urban operations for military, law enforcement, and search and rescue users. It delivers critical real-time information on the number of people and their location behind walls. It also provides information regarding room dimensions and major infrastructure elements.

Mr. Beeri continued, “This is the most popular system of its type, used by dozens of armies and Special Forces units around the world. The system has been used in operations across the globe, and has received high praise for its life-saving capabilities.”

In addition to the XAVER400, Camero will also present the XAVER100 ultra-portable, handheld presence-of-life detector, the XAVER800 portable, high-performance imaging system, and the new version of the XAVER NET, a ruggedized wireless portable command and control communication platform.
