RolaTube – 3.5m Handheld Squad VHF Antenna Mast

Friday, July 29th, 2016

One of the products I got a chance to check out at the recent Warrior East expo was RolaTube’s 3.5meter Squad Antenna. It doesn’t require guy wires and can be erected by one person. Even better, this dipole antenna is integrated into the mast so there’s no building an expedient antenna amd tossing int over a tree branch; just unroll the mast and it forms a strong, self-supporting tube. Considering the current interest in jungle operations, this is worth taking a look at for VHF comms (30-300Mhz).  I’d have killed for this when I was in.

This mast could also be used for other applications and in that case, a cap could be placed in the end in order to fortify the integrity of the tubular structure. The antenna weighs 3.1 lbs and is just 6″ X 6″ X 6″ in carrying configuration. Available in Black or MultiCam.

ADS Inc / Phokus Research Group / Cardiac Science – AED and Bleeding Control Pack

Wednesday, July 20th, 2016

At Warrior East, I found out that ADS Inc, Phokus Research Group and Cardiac Science have teamed up to offer an AED and Bleeding Control Pack solution for wall mount installation.  Not that many years ago, Automated External Defibrillators were only used by medical personnel and it was rare to find one outside of a medical facility.  Today, they are more sophisticated and found everywhere.  They are used to restart the heart after a sudden cardiac arrest which can strike those with a variety of conditions.

Unfortunately, mass casualty events such as mass shootings have become more common over the past few years so it seems obvious to combine a Cardiac Science AED with Phokus Research Group’s bleeding control packs.

In addition to the Cardiac Science AED, the box also contains a kit filled with Individual Bleeding Control Kits consisting of Quickclot dressing, Tourniquet, Z-fold sterile frog gauze, chest seals, medical frog tape, nitrile gloves and a rescue blanket. What’s more, the wall mounted boxes can be alarmed to alert medical and security personnel when they are used.

Available for agency and unit purchase through ADS Inc.

Tuesday, July 19th, 2016

Blue Force Gear is constantly developing new products. This is a pouch for the 200 rd SAW Drum. It’s a simple, straight forward design but their material selections always takes their gear to the next level in both appearance and performance.

As you can see, the ULTRAcomp material extends over the top of the lid to makes SR buckle loop.

The rear incorporates BFG’s Helium Whisper attachment system.

High Gear Evolution ADAPTIV

Sunday, July 17th, 2016

During last week’s Warrior East, former SEAL and his assistants conducted a couple of combatives demonstrations while wearing Adaptiv suits from LBX Tactical.

This video featuring Dom and Tony Blauer will give you some background on the High Gear suits which are available through LBX Tactical. While High Gear suits protect the user, they are built in such a way to allow the wearer to feel hits unlike other suits on the market which cocoon the wearer and result in unrealistic training.

Warrior East – Knight’s Armament Corp LMG

Friday, July 15th, 2016

Knight’s showed the latest version of the 5.56mm Light Machine Gun. You may also notice a new suppressor. The LMG is starting to gain momentum, particularly overseas. Maybe, we’ll see a 7.62mm big brother in the future.

Warrior East – Scubapro Helmet Dive Mask

Friday, July 15th, 2016

Scubapro has come up with an adapter for their dive masks which allow them to be connected into Ops-Core’s ARC rail fitted to a FAST Helmet in a manner similar to O2 masks for MFF ops. This device really increases the versatility of the FAST Helmet.

Here, it’s fitted to the Synergy Twin mask but the straps can be used with any of Scubapro’s masks with these quick attach clips. The strap can easily be swapped out for a traditional behind-the-head version when needed.

Look for 4th quarter availability.
