US Navy Expeditionary Combat Command Selects MOHOC Cameras

MOHOC, Inc. delivers new Personal Recording System to Coastal Riverine Group 1

SEATTLE, WA. MOHOC, Inc., creator of the world’s first military-optimized helmet cameras, has been chosen to supply the Personal Recording System for the US Navy Expeditionary Combat Command (NECC). After extensive competitive trial and evaluation through Naval Surface Warfare Center Crane, NECC selected MOHOC® Cameras over other video solutions. The tactically-designed and ruggedized cameras will be used to record both training and key mission activities.

Following the award, MOHOC recently completed delivery of over 2,000 MOHOC® Cameras and accessories to the US Navy’s Coastal Riverine Group 1 (CRG1). CRG1 conduct maritime security operations, defending high value assets and critical maritime infrastructure on both inland and coastal waterways. They are one of numerous groups under NECC now eligible to procure MOHOC® Cameras.

Eric Dobbie, Vice President of US Sales at MOHOC, commented, “We’re excited to support CRG1 with MOHOC® Cameras. We believe more NECC units and other branches of service will recognize the advantages of our field-proven helmet cameras tailored to the requirements of operators.”

MOHOC® Cameras feature a patented form-factor that provides a low-profile, helmet-contoured, and snag-free fit. They are ruggedized to IP68 rating (10m waterproof, 2m drop-proof), and easy-to-use in extreme conditions with simple, tactile controls. The cameras capture 1080p HD video and 12MP photos in visible light and infrared illumination, run on multiple battery types, and livestream video over wifi. Already deployed with Special Forces and SWAT Teams around the world, the NECC selection continues the trend of MOHOC® Cameras being adopted by broader Armed Forces and First Responders.

    Could by very useful in some regards, but all the usual concerns about micro-management, return to a Zero-Defects Program mentality, and crippling Law-fare still apply, in my opinion.

    It’ll be interesting to see how these cameras hold up long term. The USB Micro B port is a built in problem. Should have used a USB Type C. May have some use in sport skydiving.

      There is a simple reason for micro USB port, Mark. When the camera was introduced, USB-C wasn’t so popular as it is now. Well, I would say that still micro USB is more common than USB-C.

      And yes, MOHOC works better in sport skydiving than other action cams mounted on some awkward mounts!

      Elements within NECC were using Contour cameras pretty effectively and these are MILES more rugged than the Contour. It’ll be just fine.

    Mines made it through Afghanistan, pre and post cycle training, and everything thing outdoorsy I do. Only issue mine had was the selection dial broke a section off, was only a cosmetic damage, works perfectly. These things are legit. They are high quality to say the least.

    does this product have image stabilization built in?

    this will be great for the next time they surrender to a bunch of iraqis

    The video itself is stable during movement even if erratic. It has a feature to change orientation if moved. I think the image clarity isn’t so much a stability feature type of thing so much as it has high enough frames a second that the movement is viewed smoothly. It also has the ability to go from low/high fps at 720p to low/high fps at 1080p depending on how long you wanna use it. The high fps at 1080 can make for some pretty wicked slow-mo’s that will track some high angle fun landing with detail.
