Danes Choose Revision’s Batlskin Cobra Helmet

Thursday, October 11th, 2012

Earlier today, Revision announced that the Danish Army has issued a 7-year contract to them for Batlskin Cobra Helmets which include the Batlskin Modular Head Protection system (high-performance liner, ergonomic Retention System and multipurpose Front Mount). The Batlskin Cobra Helmet is made from ultra-high-molecular-weight polyethylene.

Deliveries will commence with an initial 4,335 Batlskin Cobra helmet systems to be delivered to the Danish Defence Acquisition and Logistics Organization (DALO), which will have the option to purchase additional Batlskin helmet-mounted components including the Batlskin Visor and Mandible Guard.

According to Revision they were awarded the Danish contract for a lighter-weight, blunt force, blast and ballistic higher protection level helmet after being down-selected to one of only several competitors able to fulfill this requirement. Testing of the Batlskin system was conducted at the Danish army test center with involvement from Army and Air Force military branches and Revision ultimately won the bid with high technical compliance scores, favorable end-user trials which were weighted at 60% of the evaluation and good price/value for this state-of-the-art head protection system.

“Revision is proud to have been awarded this contract to supply the Danish Military with our lightweight, high-performance polyethylene helmets and satellite Batlskin components—proof that we are advancing in our mission to meet the needs of the modern-day soldier fighting on today’s battlefield,” said Jonathan Blanshay, CEO of Revision. “Our readiness to supply next-generation helmets that meet both current and future operational environments is the culmination of many years of research and development of new materials, a strong design focus on protection systems that not only integrate seamlessly but can be customized for various military customers, and innovative manufacturing processes. The ability to produce both highly-specialized, polyethylene composite helmet shells at Revision’s Composite Center of Excellence as well as more traditional aramid helmets at our Newport facility enables us to quickly iterate helmet solutions to meet our global customers’ program requirements.”

Denmark Goes MultiCam

Thursday, November 10th, 2011

The new Combat Uniform M/11 in MultiCam is coming soon for Danish troops who have been using the M/84 pattern uniform for over 20 years. Rather than separate M/01 desert and M/84 woodland uniforms, there will be heavy and lightweight variants of the new M/11.

Despite popular belief, the M/84 pattern uniform has actually been improved numerous times over the years. For instance, a breathable membrane was introduced as well as integrated knee protection. Additionally, they have gone to a nylon based fabric. And while this is an improvement over cotton for use in cold wet environments found in Northern Europe, as we know, in a flame threat environment, nylon is not your friend.

Due to manufacturing lead times, ISAF 15 & 16 should deploy with the new uniforms in 2013.

Thanks KK!
