Warrior Expo – Juggernaut Defense

Thursday, April 30th, 2015

I first saw the Radio Dock several years ago during a visit to Juggernaut’s HQ.  While they’ve been offered to various programs, they’ve never been a standard product, until now.  
The Radio.Dock was designed to attach directly to the PALS webbing on armor to house any bottom-battery tactical radio in the inventory (148/152 style battery). The Radio.Dock™ utilizes a rugged battery eliminator with capability to be power-only or power/data capable. Thales even uses it with their 148’s with Mission-Modules on the back. The open configuration effectively allows all of the data-sidehats to stay attached and the face of the radio to be protected while allowing much of the radio housing and the top half of the battery housing to stay exposed for conducting heat off the radio (very critical). The radio is secured via the patent pending PPIP and BOA-Closure System allowing the user to pivot the radio away from the armor to interface with the display/control on the faceplate.

The Radio.Holster on the other hand is a sub-$100 alternative to the Radio.Dock for those who don’t need a data connection.   It still has the PPIP and Boa-Closure System with a ‘battery-cup’ rather than the bayonet features used on the Radio.Dock™ to create the  Radio.Holster™.   

Both are PALS compatible. Available from www.juggernautcase.com

It features a new one-piece housing, a new depot level replaceable common connector module so you don’t have to trash the case of you break the cable and a new two-piece door design for audio ports. The point of these upgrades is to comply with IP-68 which offers 2 meter immersion.

DARPA’s FLASH Program Leverages Persistant Close Air Support Development To Aid Hotshot Firefighters

Wednesday, July 2nd, 2014

FLASH-Kit_02

The Defense Advanced research Project Agency funds a wide variety of tech development programs but rarely does the capability developed for one end up changing the lives of a completely different profession. This is the case when capabilities identified during the Persistent Close Air Support program were used for the Fire Line Advanced Situational Awareness for Handhelds (FLASH) program to aid firefighters.

FLASH utilizes tablet computers, aircraft-mounted sensors and radios to link everything together. It is designed to identify the location of every firefighter and firefighting aircraft in expansive fire zones. The system overlays multiple streams of information visually via a tablet to each firefighter and the fire command post onto a digital map.

The results of a recent 3-day exercise were promising. Much like on a modern battlefield, firefighters on the ground and controllers in a command post in Prescott, Arizona as well as observers in Virginia had access to the same information. It increased situational awareness and personnel accountability. Both are critical to successful firefighting. In fact, the exercise took place not far from where 19 firefighters from the Prescott Fire Department’s Granite Mountain Hot Shots unit gave their lives just one year ago on June 30, 2013, battling the Yarnell Hill wildfire.

Not only does the FLASH technology increase the safety for firefighters but it also helped them find fires more quickly. But that advantage doesn’t stop there. They also ran a separate but related demonstration of search and rescue for an injured hiker. Triangulating from the person’s 911 call, the FLASH-equipped team found the person within 15 minutes. Normally, this can take hours or even days.

According to DARPA, several performers participated and made the demonstration and training possible:

-Persistent Systems LLC developed the tactical radio
-Juggernaut Defense developed the case for the tablet, radio/tablet cabling and vest to hold the equipment
-AvWatch provided the aircraft with mounted sensors for the training
-The Digital Precision Strike Suite team from Naval Air Warfare Center Weapons Division at China Lake, California, provided the FLASH software and integrated the various systems

In fact, the Prescott Fire Department continues to use the equipment and DARPA is developing training materials.

Thanks to Juggernaut Defense for the heads up and the photos!

Juggernaut Defense – Wedge Radio Dock

Wednesday, April 30th, 2014

During last week’s Warrior Expo Juggernaut Defense showed me the latest iteration of their Wedge Radio Dock. It’s based on a system they’ve been using and improving over the past several years. I really like the attachment system that interfaces directly with PALs webbing.

20140429-203149.jpg

The Wedge.Radio.Dock™ was designed to directly attach any “bottom-battery” style tactical radio to a dismounted warfighter’s kit and provide a battery eliminator interface for connecting larger capacity batteries for extended mission performance. The patent pending PPIP (Polymer PALS Interface Plate) directly attaches to the armor eliminating the need for a radio pouch. The increased thermal conductivity of the radio’s surface allows the radio to run much cooler addressing the issue of overheating radios.

20140429-203440.jpg

A BOA® closure cable secures the radio up against the PPIP and allows for many radio sizes and thicknesses to be attached. This also protects the radio keypad and display against the PPIP but still allows access to the HMI by simply releasing the BOA® reel and hinging the radio out from the armor, without disconnecting and cables or antennas.

20140429-203819.jpg

The Wedge.Radio.Dock™ is IP-67 dust/immersion rated, MIL-STD-810G, and MIL-STD-461 qualified. A 24″ cable from the Radio.Dock terminates in a Glenair plug and connects to any Nett Warrior style battery (Li-145 or Conformal style) or to a 25/5590 battery with the X590-C adapter offered by Juggernaut Defense. Voltage input range is 9-35VDC. Compatible radios include: Thales MBITR/MBITR2 (including Mission Modules), Wave Relay MPU-4, Harris AN/PRC-152A/7800T, L3 SIR 2.5 Tac Rover, and Coastal Defense MVR-IV.
