High Ground Wins Next Gen ANG Helmet Cover

Ehmke Manufacturing Company, Inc., home of High Ground is pleased to announce that the Air National Guard (ANG), has awarded a contract to purchase High Ground’s newly designed “TANGO-SFS” helmet cover for their special operations and security forces units.

High Ground’s TANGO-SFS helmet cover is specifically developed for operators that require demanding performance criteria, functionality and Berry Compliance. High Ground’s technical staff and application engineers worked directly with the Air National Guard to evaluate, research and test downrange feedback that resulted in product enhancements and the incorporation of unique design elements in the ANG’s head borne protection systems.

“Our team of engineers working under the direction of Executive Vice President Michael Runella, were able to develop a helmet cover that exceeds the requirements to support the mission of our Air National Guard (ANG),” said High Ground President Glenn Aust. “Our mission at High Ground is and has always been to focus on what we can do to support our war fighters as they selflessly work each day to protect us and the interests of our country.”  

“These advancements position High Ground as a major contributor to future head borne systems that will benefit the military. High Ground now offers a 100% Berry Compliant, made in the U.S.A., commercial off the shelf (COTS) product,” said Mike Runella, Executive Vice President.

“Mike Runella and his product development team did an excellent job of translating the Air National Guard’s performance criteria into a robust head borne systems product. The joint collaboration between the soldier and our technical team has resulted in a high-performing product for our front-line soldiers,” commented Ehmke CEO Bob Rosania. “I see this as just the first product we will develop with the help of the Air National Guard.

    That’s a blatant copy of the Agilite Gen4 Helmet cover…”“Our team of engineers working under the direction of Executive Vice President Michael Runella, were able to “develop” a helmet cover that exceeds the requirements to support the mission.

      “L”,

      This is not a “blatant” copy of the Agilite Gen4 Helmet cover. Thats like stating no two mag pouches or plate carriers can look alike/similar in the world of 100’s of nylon manufactures. While it does have “similar” characteristics (as requested by the USGOV/ANG), there are numerous differences both on the interior and exterior (not shown in pictures) that are completely different than that helmet cover you are mentioning. I urge you to personally contact me if you have any questions/concerns regarding this and would be more than happy to discuss with you.

      Thanks,

        So it’s ok to copy it if a client asks you to? Agilite covers look quite different from others and this just so happens to have the exact same features and lines? Hmm…

        • Berry says:

          If that customer is the US military and they have to have it made in the US, then yes, it’s ok.

        • Mike Runella says:

          “L”,

          Again like I have stated above, the customer (in this case the USGOV/USAF/ANG) came to us with many different versions, options, needs and functions that they needed to support the war fighter. Our team worked with those needs and requests to fulfill their requests while making a 100% made in the U.S.A. and Berry Compliant product.

          But I can assure you from being in the business/industry for over 13 years and lots of others (including competitors) will/would vouch for my name and integrity, that this was NOT a blatant copy of a competitors helmet cover. This industry is way too small to try and get away with a sneaky move like that, trust me.

          As far as your statement regarding “features and lines”, the Revision/Galvion GEN4 is a helmet that they are issued. We have NO choice but to follow the lines and shape of that specific helmet which in this case is that GEN4 helmet style.

          Lastly, you are more than welcome to contact me at [email protected] 24/7 and I will be glad to walk you through the differences if you would like to know.

          Sincerely,
          Mike Runella

    You don’t need engineers to reverse engineer a product….
