Tuesday, July 10th, 2018

The first Special Operations Forces K9 Conference (SOFK9C) has been held near Warsaw (Poland) in June 2018. The topic of this year’s event was “Use of Service Dogs in the Fight Against Modern Terrorism”.

Operators, dog handlers, trainers and canine specialists from USA and all around Europe gathered to share knowledge and their experience. Various K9 techniques and tactics used in special operations are discussed, demonstrated and trained.

The goal for this event is not only to share knowledge in SOF community but also to build and strenghten relationships between people working on this very special and relatively new subject.

The conference is organised by SOF Project (Poland), Silent Technical (Poland) and Norse K9 (Norway).

The next SOFK9C will be held in 2019.

SOFIC 18 – Trident K9 Tactical Helmet

Thursday, May 24th, 2018


I am an unrepentant dog lover, even Maligators, so when I saw the Trident K9 Tactical Helmet by K9 Helms, I had to stop and take a look.


Here, K9 Dexter from T3 Consulting / Coastal K9, wears the Trident Helmet at SOFIC (via K9 Helm’s Facebook page).


A. The main shell is a single piece of super-tough, 3D printed nylon. It features complex curves and details that are finely tuned for performance and durability.

B. ANSI rated, UV400 eye protection is easy to install and remove, yet stays firmly in place. Independent, spherical lenses are canted to each side to maximize the dog’s peripheral vision.

C. Left and right side retention plates squeeze inward with strap tension, providing cushy-yet-firm clamping force.

D. Thick rubber strap is reversible for use by right or left handed humans.

E. 2-position rail can be used to mount a variety of devices, or it can be removed altogether in favor of cameras like the MOHOC, which may be attached directly to the helmet surface.

F. Flexible rear brace meets the neck and terminates in a flared beaver tail, stabilizing the helmet during sudden changes to head and neck angles.

G. Secured with Velcro, the multi-panel foam padding is easily replaced and made in 3 sizes to achieve the best possible fit.

H. Captive strap guides and shielded button stud provide a secure closure that’s fast and easy to operate.

I. Removable fasteners facilitate easy disassembly. Replaceable parts allow for many rebuilds — extending the unit’s service life.

The helmet is still in the development phase, but should be released late this year.
