Velocity Systems Obtains a United States Patent for their Versatile Protective Helmet Appliqué Assembly

Wednesday, April 12th, 2017

Dulles, VA – April 11, 2017 – Velocity Systems, a provider of high performing armor solutions, has been granted a second patent regarding the Versatile Protective Helmet Appliqué. The Versatile Protective Helmet Appliqué Assembly permits a helmet wearer to upgrade the ballistic prevention capabilities of a traditional helmet quickly and efficiently. The helmet appliqué can be provided as part of a helmet appliqué system and/or assembly that includes internal-side connection means for attaching to a helmet and external-side connection means for receiving any of various external items such as identification tags, mounts and external equipment or attachments. The appliqué element can comprise various types of material, including, for example, ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene (UHMWPE).

The first helmet appliqué patent acknowledges a cutout for a night vision google mount and goggles. The second patent takes the innovative principle of the first patent a step further to include multiple helmet appliqué elements employed on the same helmet. This includes surfaces and portions that are cooperatively engageable for covering multiple areas of the helmet at the same time. Velocity Systems is committed to focusing on R&D efforts to continue to develop innovative lifesaving products. For further information about the Versatile Protective Helmet Appliqué Assembly Patent please email info@velsyst.com. *United States Patent Number 9,557,144 and 9,222,758

SHOT Show 17 – Velocity Systems Overview

Tuesday, January 24th, 2017

In case you missed Velocity Systems at SHOT Show, here are five great new products. We’ll have more detailed articles on each one soon but I can tell you that if you already like the SCARAB LT, you’re going to love the SCARAB DLX.

The Placard Chest Rig Adapter is made with Helium Whisper and designed to turn their placards into a chest rig (attach placard to Chest Rig Adapter and clip into their H Harness using ITW Buckles).

The Tactical Back Panel was designed to be used in conjunction with any of their chest rigs. If the Plate Sleeve is used the kit can hold both front and back hard armor plates (Plate Sleeve and Chest Rigs sold separately). The panel includes an internal plate pocket and separate hydration bladder pocket.

The Mayflower Jungle Kit is designed to provide a load carriage solution for the hot, wet jungle environment. Features include an H-harness with removable padding, a sternum strap and pouch options. The pouches were designed around the amount and type of equipment usually needed for long duration jungle patrolling. All the pouches feature the Helium Whisper attachment system (zero water absorbency) and large diameter drain holes.

The 48 Hour Assault Pack Includes an integrated hydration bladder sleeve, small pocket for cell phone or PDA, PALS webbing on left exterior side, water bottle compression sleeve on right exterior side and an open top compression pocket on front.

The SCARAB™ DLX is Velocity Systems top of the line carrier in innovative technology and comfort. Weighing in at 1.6 lbs., the SCARAB ™ DLX is 20% lighter than the already ultra-light SCARAB ™ LT. The new design includes an interior frame built to put space between your body and the carrier for passive cooling and blunt trauma reduction. The revolutionary material used prevents the MOLLE capable triangles from long-term distortion or loss of shape. The ergonomically designed and adjustable padded shoulder straps articulate on a D-ring allowing them to sit correctly and comfortably on any user, regardless of neck width or shoulder broadness. The SCARAB™ DLX includes Integrated SwiftClip® buckles for rapid don/doff of auxiliary chest worn equipment (i.e. Chest Rigs and SwiftClip® Placards), and secure plate pockets that have Velcro® brand fasteners on the closure flap as well as on the interior plate strap.

All materials and workmanship are 100% made in the USA.
