Juggernaut Defense – Wedge Radio Dock

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.

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.

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.

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.

    looks like a very well thought out product… but who ever made that side plate carrier should be shot! the bartacks are screwed and no where near spec… there is no excuse for that!

    Saw this at the Darley Defense expo. It was a facepalm why-didn’t-I-think-of-that moment.

    That’s not a rifleman radio, so yeah, they’re a bit off the requirements and are on the outside looking in.

      Kit is sweet. You are right, no rifleman radio – but they aren’t on the outside looking in, they are looking into the future. Rifleman will go away quickly – lame narrow-band comms and MANET capabilities. JuggDef is on their game.
