US Patent and Trademark Office Issues Cam-Fit Patent To Team Wendy

Wednesday, August 30th, 2017

US Patent 9,743,701 has been issued for Team Wendy’s popular Cam-Fit retention system. The Cam-Fit is very popular due to its ease of use as well as fit, comfort, and load balance. The system is used in Team Wendy’s EXFIL line of helmets as well as sold as a plug-and-play system for most common ballistic helmets. In fact, you may notice that the helmet shell in the drawings is a Crye Precision AirFrame.

Knockoffs of the system have recently surfaced. No doubt these will now be in Team Wendy’s crosshairs.

Tuesday, August 29th, 2017

Protonex to Exhibit at MSPO and DSEI

Protonex will be showcasing their world-leading PTX-series of intelligent power management solutions at the 2017 MSPO Expo, in Targi Kielce, Kielce, Poland, September 5-8, 2017 (booth F-18), and 2017 DSEI Expo, in London, UK, from September 12-15th (booth N4-221).

The annual four-day MSPO Expo in Poland showcases products for Land, Air and Sea Defense. Defense and Security Equipment International (DSEI) is a world-leading bi-annual event that brings together experts in all defense and security domains from around the world.

Ray Summers, Director of Military Sales at Protonex stated;

“The adoption of our power management solutions by USSOCOM – as well as all branches of the conventional US military – has proven the ruggedness, effectiveness, and ease-of-use of our technology. The application of our power management solutions to the needs of EOD, Medical, Directed Fires, Unmanned Systems, and SOF Communications teams in the US has also spread to international Allied unit test and evaluation programs. Based on the overwhelmingly positive feedback we’ve received from the field, we decided to participate in these highly regarded European events in order to showcase our solutions to an even wider audience.”

Protonex’s PTX line of rugged, intelligent, lightweight power management solutions includes the SPM-622 Squad Power Manager that dramatically reduces the number and variety of batteries needed by today’s warfighter; the ABC-812 Adaptive Battery Charger that allows end-users to charge all their batteries twice as fast, anywhere, and with half the energy; and the VPM-402 Vest Power Manager that manages both data and power for military communications and situational awareness systems.

The SPM-622 Squad Power Manager has also recently achieved “Safe-To-Fly Certification” by the United States Air Force for C-130H “Hercules” and C-130J “Super Hercules”. As the C-130 Hercules celebrated its 63rd birthday on August 23rd, this certification is particularly timely.

IMG_0479

The Safe-To-Fly certification means that troops can plug their power managers into the aircraft’s power outlets while in-flight, without any danger of interference with the aircraft’s systems. With this capability in hand, troops can focus on their mission, reduce time spent dealing with batteries and shrink their overall equipment footprint. The award of this certification also enables medical personnel to utilize the SPM-622 Universal Austere Medical Power (UAMP) Kit to continue running lifesaving equipment during the flight phase of a medical evacuation.

PTX power management solutions from Protonex enable units to maintain constant operational effectiveness – while greatly reducing their battery burden and logistics footprint.
