Darley Safe Water Box

Monday, October 2nd, 2017

Darley Defense showed me their Safe Water Box.  The water is vacuum filled in a flexible bag, creating a barrier to oxygen and aroma, and placed in an outer board box protecting from light and air during the entire storage period, thus avoiding risk of bacterial contamination. This one-way packaging is compliant with hygienic requirements and makes packaged water affordable in a sustainable format. The bag and box are completely recyclable. Additionally, there is a tamper evident strip for food security.


The 82nd Airborne is using this during water resupply efforts during their training exercises at Fort Bragg and Fort Polk. Interstingly, they claim this is is cheaper and more effective to distribute to deployed forces than using the reusable 5 gallon jerry cans. For example, it can be configured as a CDs bundle.  The cost to the 82nd Airborne is 50% cheaper than their previous water solution. 

The Red Cross and FEMA are deploying this technology to hurricane stricken areas. They have 26 pallets of water going Puerto Rico this week. The Red Cross likes this bag in box packaging because one box can be given to a family and it can be easily utilized for drinking, cooking, hygiene. This is also significant because the long-term environmental footprint is substantially less compared to bottled water.


Darley Defense Days – Sericore

Thursday, June 8th, 2017


We showed you Sericore’s Demolition System Remote and Timed device during a Darley event a few years ago.


Using the same technology, they’ve introduced the new Sericore Remote Firing Initiator. Designed specifically for a federal law enforcement agency, the system has a 2.5 mile LOS range in a rural high RF environment and .5 mile LOS Range in an urban high RF environment and features AES encrypted comms. Each transmitter is powered by CR-123A batteries and will controls up to 8 receivers. It’s 10 juole discharge fires 80 M6 series detonators and the MD82 tip fires NONEL and electric detonators. ARM hold times are 10, 30 or 60 min and the fire delay is configurable for 0, 1, 2, or 5 secs.

Darley Defense Days – Omni-Wool Socks 

Thursday, June 8th, 2017

Omni-Wool Socks are made from Merino wool which comes from a herd in Montana, making them Berry compliant. It also means they offer all of the advantages of Merino: wicking, inherent FR, anti-microbial.

Although they offer a wide range of socks, the boot models are available in light, medium and heavy.  The heavy sock was initially intended for use in cold weather environments but some users have adopted them for hot weather due to their thick nap.  The socks are engineered from top to bottom to fit the shape of the foot, ankle and calf.  For instance, they’ve integrated a non binding top and calf relief feature so the sock stays up, but doesn’t constrict.

Interested parties should contact Darley Defense.

Darley Defense Days – CMC Rescue

Thursday, June 2nd, 2016

This is a new locking triple bar descender, called the 3D. Most people use a six bar rack but this design not only saves weight, but also space in a pack. This design is also easy to load. The middle bar opens so all you have to do is pull a bight of rope through and close the bar.


Darley Defense Days – DI Optical USA

Thursday, June 2nd, 2016

DI Optical USA is a subsidiary of the Korean firm DI Optical. Machine gunners may recognize their DCL series of machine gun red dot sights. The DCL-110AD3X was created for the Army Mounted Machine Gun Optic.

They also offer miniature red dot optics which are prismatic sights. While heavier, this technology helps reduce parallex.

The smaller optic is the DCL-23 and the DCL-30 is the larger of the two. Both offer a 1.5 MOA red dot and have 3 nighttime and 7 daytime settings. The eye shield boots are rubber and they come with a 1913 compatible mount although the DCL-30 will accept LaRue QD mount. Also, the DCL-23 has a removable shim that allows it to be lowered for use with an SMG.
