Wednesday, February 13th, 2019

NEWINGTON, N.H., (February 12, 2019) –SIG SAUER, Inc. is pleased to introduce its newest 300BLK ammunition – the 120gr supersonic 300BLK SBR Elite Copper Duty load, specifically designed for short barrel rifles.  Available to the commercial market for the first time, this supersonic duty round is engineered for reliable, controlled, 1.8x expansion, and superior feeding out of rifles with sub-9-inch barrels. 

The supersonic SBR Elite Copper Duty ammunition features an all-copper bullet and black oxide shell case to visually denote SBR capability. Velocity is 1,897 fps with muzzle energy of 959 ft-lbs out of a 6 ¾-inch barrel.

“The new 120gr supersonic SBR Elite Copper Duty ammunition delivers the highest terminal performance possible in short barrel AR-style rifles, something the professional community has been asking us to provide,” said Brad Criner, Senior Director, Brand Management and Business Development, SIG SAUER Ammunition. “Our various SIG Elite 300BLK ammunition loadings have been well received by match shooters, hunters, and law enforcement and government agencies, and there will be more exciting 300BLK offerings from SIG in the weeks to come.”

SIG Elite Copper Duty ammunition uses flash-reduced propellant to minimize visible signature while shooting in low-light situations. Premium-quality primers are also used to minimize variations in velocity

Revision Celebrates Nerv Centr Power Management Solution Adoption With Key US Customers

Wednesday, February 13th, 2019

Essex Junction, Vermont (February 13, 2019) – Revision Military—a world leader in integrated, soldier-worn power management solutions—has successfully supplied numerous Nerv Centr® power management systems to key customers in the U.S. Marine Corps and Air National Guard Joint Terminal Attack Controllers (JTAC).

“Revision’s Power division is a prime example of our unyielding commitment to meeting troop needs head on,” said Jonathan Blanshay, CEO, Revision. “If we see any opportunity to leverage our capabilities to improve warfighter equipment, in any capacity, we are going to pursue it relentlessly. The development of the Nerv Centr family of products—solutions designed to suit the real-world needs of troops on the ground, so they can count on longer-lasting energy reserves on extended and remote missions—fully embodies this pursuit. Revision’s power capabilities have grown significantly since we first staked out this territory in 2014, and we are poised expand further with the recent acquisition of Protonex. The recent traction of the Nerv Centr line and this exciting partnership with the Air National Guard is a testament to our tenacious mindset, and reinforces all the work we’ve put in to get to where we are today.”

Revision was selected by the Air National Guard (ANG) to supply Nerv Centr power management solutions for their Battlefield Airman Kits, for use by Joint Terminal Attack Controllers (JTAC). Revision has delivered 652 kits, each of which includes a Nerv Centr SharePack® Power Management System, a Nerv Centr SoloPack™ Battery, an Enhanced Charger, and select cables.  

This order by the Air National Guard builds on several recent successes for Revision’s Nerv Centr family of power management products. Especially noteworthy is Revision’s work with the U.S. Marine Corps to supply the energy needs for their Target Handoff System—a constellation of interconnected devices that provide Scout Observers, Joint Fires Observers, and JTACs  with the ability to self-locate, acquire targets, and refine and relay coordinate data for target engagement. Revision’s SoloPack Batteries and Nerv Centr Chargers provide centralized power that has greatly exceeded expectations—powering the THS for upward of 20 hours, compared to the eight-hour threshold set by the program.

Collaboration with the Air National Guard for the Battlefield Airman Kits began two years ago, in response to JTAC instructors’ request for a higher-capacity alternative power solution with lower weight and less bulk. Revision worked closely with this group to understand their requirements, their equipment, and the integration specifications for their vest load outs. After trials with the Nerv Centr products, the ANG committed to outfitting all of their JTAC instructors across 15 squadrons in the U.S. Successful delivery of this order also included SharePack firmware improvements and the development of a new PRC 117G radio adapter. During this collaboration, the ANG also aided in the development of the user interface of the Nerv Centr mobile app—Revision’s first mobile application (available now in the Google Play store), designed to provide an intuitive interface for soldier-worn power system management, enhancing connectivity, device monitoring, and control over power reserves.

Monday, February 11th, 2019

World-class specialist in design and production of high-specification armored vehicles and survivability systems, US-based Jankel Tactical Systems, has been awarded 3 contracts to supply their BLASTech mitigation seats to a US based MRAP provider. The contracts have a multi-million dollar combined value. This announcement coincides with the Tactical Wheeled Vehicle Conference (TWVC), taking place in Monterey, California, 03-05 February 2019.

Jankel Tactical Systems is the market’s most well-established Blast Attenuating Seat leader in North America. Under these contracts, Jankel will be delivering MK 2.5 BLASTech X900194 commander seats and X900003 troop seats in support of MRAP based programs. Jankel is pleased to continue to support the survivability upgrade on these tactical wheeled vehicles that have now had Jankel’s MK 2.5 seats fitted for almost a decade. These latest orders will be delivered by the middle of the 2019 calendar year.

Jankel will be attending the TWVC in preparation for the release of its latest and most advanced MK 4.0 BLASTech blast mitigating seating line.  The MK 4.0 will feature the same battle-proven mitigation technology that has made Jankel the market leader in blast mitigation seating.  The new seats have been developed to be lighter in weight making them more suitable for the current evolving tactical wheeled vehicle market.  Jankel also expect the new MK 4.0 seat to be more competitive in terms of price than the existing MK 2.5, 3.0, and 3.5 designs, while delivering increased capability.

NEWINGTON, N.H., (February 7, 2019) – SIG SAUER, Inc. congratulates Team SIG Captain, Max Michel for kicking-off 2019 with a big win in his first match of the competitive shooting season for Team SIG.  Michel competed in the 2019 Miami Open held January 11th through January 13th at the Homestead Training Center in Homestead, Florida and claimed first place in the Carry Optics Division. 

“This is a great start to the 2019 competition season for Team SIG.  Max’s intensity and continued focus on the Carry Optics division is bringing home wins for Team SIG and driving product development,” began Tom Taylor, Chief Marketing Officer and Executive Vice President, Commercial Sales, SIG SAUER, Inc. “Max has been working for years with the design and engineering team at SIG SAUER Electro-Optics to develop a high-performance, competition open reflex carry sight that we’ve named the ROMEO3MAX.  This was the first time he competed with the ROMEO3MAX and we couldn’t be more pleased with the results.” 

To claim his first place finish at the 2019 Miami Open, Max competed through 12 courses of fire, winning 11 using his P320X5, the newly developed ROMEO3MAX open reflex sight, and SIG SAUER Match Elite Pistol Competition Ammunition. 

“The Miami Open was my first time running the ROMEO3MAX and it ran perfectly from start to finish.  The sun was brutal in Miami for this competition, and while others had issues with their optics, the ROMEO3MAX performed flawlessly,” added Michel.

The ROMEO3MAX is a compact, open reflex sight featuring a 30mm Max round lens design for superior field-of-view, a special red-notch filter for vivid red dot and unrivaled optical clarity, 6 MOA dot size for rapid target engagement, twelve illumination intensity levels, MOTAC activation, and up to 20,000 hours of runtime.  The sight is machined from aircraft grade aluminum in a matte black finish, with a side-loading battery tray, and waterproof (IPX-7 rated).

“We’ve been working with Max for over two years to optimize the design of the ROMEO3MAX reflex sight for competition pistol shooters and USPSA Open Gun Division mount configurations, and we could not be more proud of the result, and his positive feedback the first time running the optic in competition,” said Andy York, President, SIG SAUER Electro-Optics.  “The ROMEO3MAX will be shipping July 2019, and congratulations to Max on what I’m sure is the first of many wins for 2019.”
