Rheinmetall Defence’s Solar Sigma Shield is a blanket-like appliqué. It is designed to not only reduce the effects of solar heat in vehicles, but also provide multispectral camouflage. It is also fire resistant and no-slip/no-skid, another major plus for operating on armor vehicles.

Testing by Defence Research and Development Canada Show up to a 30% lower temperature when using Solarshield.

In this case, it is mounted to a Tactical Armored Patrol Vehicle from Textron Systems, currently in service with the Canadian Army.

Thursday, May 31st, 2018

Colt Canada’s new Modular Rail Rifle is the follow on to their Integrated Upper Receiver which relies upon Picatinny Rails at the fore end. Users found the hand guard to be too bulky for a proper grip and Colt Canada wanted to adopt a more attachment standard. They chose M-Lok for the MRR.

Here, you can see the single construction of the upper receiver and hand guard.

It’s available in three calibers, 300 blk, 5.56mm, and 7.62mm. The 7.62mm is based on the Colt 901 lower receiver.

Gerber Introduces New Limited Edition G1-002 At 2018 Blade Show

Thursday, May 31st, 2018

PORTLAND, OREGON (May 31st, 2018)Gerber, a leading manufacturer of knives, tools, and equipment will introduce the latest edition of the G1 Series of custom knives, the G1-002, at the 2018 Blade Show in Atlanta, Georgia. An industry pioneer, Gerber has been crafting world-class knives and tools for decades and first introduced the G1 Series in 2017 to showcase the craftsmanship, design, and skill that are ongoing components of the brand’s robust American manufacturing.

Each year, Gerber plans to introduce a new addition to the G1 portfolio that will showcase elevated materials, processes, and technologies. The series serves to fuel the future development of production-caliber products, serving a large market of both professional and recreational users. As the second edition in the G1 Series, the G1-002 pays homage to a Gerber legend: the Mark II combat knife. The G1-002 is a distinct combination of premium materials and processes, buttressed by collaborations with two innovators in the knifemaking and shooting industry: Zev Technologies and Blackpoint Tactical.

“The G1-002 is not only a re-make of the heralded Mark II, it’s an overhaul. Wielding an S60V blade, a custom-machined handle from Zev Technologies, and a multi-mount Kydex® sheath from Blackpoint Tactical, the G1-002 is both a functional tool and a collector’s item” says Karrson Koivisto, Product Manager at Gerber. “First introduced in 1966, the Mark II is recognized as the benchmark for combat knives and stands as a piece of battlefield and knifemaking history.”

At the Portland, Oregon headquarters, Gerber engineers provided insightful design, informed engineering, precise machining, and first-class execution to bring the G1-002 to life. The team then turned to Zev Technologies – An innovator in high-quality firearm components for pistol, rifle and AR platforms – for a uniquely functional custom-machined handle with Cerakote® coating. Blackpoint Tactical was recruited to build a custom Kydex® sheath fitting of an undeniably legendary blade.

All aspects of the G1-002 were meticulously considered, sourcing first-class materials and leveraging both the master craftsmanship of Gerber’s manufacturing facility as well as the expertise of two premium partners. Proudly designed and made in the USA, each of the 100 hand-built G1-002 knives underwent a laborious multi-stage process, accumulating dozens of hours in production, processing, and assembly. Each knife is hand assembled, double inspected, and serialized for collection.

The ultra-premium S60V blade is the foundation of the G1-002. Gerber finished the spear-point blade with a highly polished and full fine edge, presenting a marked departure from the original Mark II’s blade. Zev Technologies applied a machining pattern inspired by their renowned stippling, typically applied to Glock pistols – resulting in a unique aesthetic and supreme grip. Blackpoint Tactical heeded the call for a custom Kydex® sheath with vertical or horizontal belt carry options and boasts click-in retention.

Visit the Gerber booth at the 2018 Blade Show to purchase the G1-002, a limited number will be for sale on site. It will also be available for purchase directly on Gerber’s website – retail price for the G1-002 is $400.00.

Proceeds will benefit the Special Operations Care Fund [SOC-F] which provides medical, financial, and other support to SOF members and their families in ways that are often not met through other sources.

The G1-002 has also been nominated for a “Knife Collaboration of The Year” award at the 2018 Blade Show.

CANSEC 18 – Mawashi Participates In NATO Integration of the Exoskeleton on the Battlefield Project

Thursday, May 31st, 2018

Last year we wrote about Mawashi’s UPRISE Tactical Exoskeleton. Once again this year, they exhibited with Logistik Unicorp, and they offered us an update on their project.

Along with other exoskeleton manufacturers, they were invited to participate in the NATO Integration of the Exoskeleton on the Battlefield Project.

As part of this project, Mawashi’s UPRISE Tactical Exoskeleton was trialed while worn under an EOD Suit during the second workshop held in the Quartier Maj Housiau Military Base in Peutie, Vilvoorde, Belgium on 6-8 March 2018.

This project is sponsored through NATO’s Defence against Terrorism Program of Work (DAT POW). The initial workshop held in Tren?ín, Slovakia, set the general framework to draft the Minimum Military Requirements (MMR) for Exoskeletons in support of EOD operators and highlighted the initial requirements and issues for their integration in EOD operations.

The aim of the second workshop was to investigate and prove how the Exoskeleton Technology currently available in the market may apply direct assistance to the EOD operations and how it can support and enhance the EOD team mobility, endurance, precision on target and increase the payload capacity. During the workshop, MMR were reviewed and two live trials were executed, when EOD teams conducted IEDD and CMD action using Exoskeleton Technologies.

This Successful Event ended at the NATO HQ, where the concept of the project as well as current achievements were presented during the meeting of National Armament Directors Representatives.

NATO’s Communications and Information (NCI) Agency produced this video.

Mawashi has conducted further NATO experimentation, including a Live Demonstration for the NATO Army Armaments Group (NAAG) Land Capability Group on Dismounted Soldier Systems (LCGDSS), on the Marine Corps Load Effects Assessment Program (MC-LEAP) Obstacle Course.
