Former Parent Company of Revision Military Announces Name Change To Galvion

Tuesday, November 26th, 2019

MONTREAL, Quebec, Canada (November 26, 2019) – Following the recent announcement of the sale of its protective eyewear business to ASGARD Partners & Co., the remaining Armor, Soldier Power and Electronics, Vehicle Platform Power and Advanced Concept divisions of Revision Military will move forward under the new corporate name GALVION.

“Eyewear was the foundation on which the company was built and early on, the Revision name became synonymous with our world-class military eye protection. Today, the company’s portfolio has grown to encompass a much wider range of active and integrated systems, and strategically, it made sense for the Revision name to stay with the legacy eyewear business,” said CEO, Jonathan Blanshay. “As Galvion, we move forward with a sharpened focus, and a mission to provide solutions that enhance the overall agility and survivability of the modern military and tactical operator. We exist to empower them to meet both the immediate and future challenges they may face,” added Blanshay.

Galvion will continue to design and manufacture protective head and torso products, develop customized power supply and management solutions for both soldier and vehicle, and invest in the development of advanced concept, integrated systems based on human-centered innovation and deep end-user insights. “Our focus is on active, performance-enhancing equipment – making the soldier faster, lighter and more connected than ever before. For Galvion, it will always be about providing the absolute best solutions for operators, with the ultimate goal for protective gear to be the last line of defense, rather than the first,” said Blanshay.

“As a company, our strength has always been the caliber, passion and ingenuity of our people, and as a team, we are incredibly excited to build the Galvion name and brand while continuing to honor our history as a company,” continued Blanshay. Customers, vendors and partners should expect the same dedicated design, engineering, sales and support team at Galvion, along with an energized commitment to exceed expectation and imagination. Additional information regarding name change and conducting business with the new corporate entity will be shared with partners as available.

Revision Celebrates Nerv Centr Power Management Solution Adoption With Key US Customers

Wednesday, February 13th, 2019

Essex Junction, Vermont (February 13, 2019) – Revision Military—a world leader in integrated, soldier-worn power management solutions—has successfully supplied numerous Nerv Centr® power management systems to key customers in the U.S. Marine Corps and Air National Guard Joint Terminal Attack Controllers (JTAC).

“Revision’s Power division is a prime example of our unyielding commitment to meeting troop needs head on,” said Jonathan Blanshay, CEO, Revision. “If we see any opportunity to leverage our capabilities to improve warfighter equipment, in any capacity, we are going to pursue it relentlessly. The development of the Nerv Centr family of products—solutions designed to suit the real-world needs of troops on the ground, so they can count on longer-lasting energy reserves on extended and remote missions—fully embodies this pursuit. Revision’s power capabilities have grown significantly since we first staked out this territory in 2014, and we are poised expand further with the recent acquisition of Protonex. The recent traction of the Nerv Centr line and this exciting partnership with the Air National Guard is a testament to our tenacious mindset, and reinforces all the work we’ve put in to get to where we are today.”

Revision was selected by the Air National Guard (ANG) to supply Nerv Centr power management solutions for their Battlefield Airman Kits, for use by Joint Terminal Attack Controllers (JTAC). Revision has delivered 652 kits, each of which includes a Nerv Centr SharePack® Power Management System, a Nerv Centr SoloPack™ Battery, an Enhanced Charger, and select cables.  

This order by the Air National Guard builds on several recent successes for Revision’s Nerv Centr family of power management products. Especially noteworthy is Revision’s work with the U.S. Marine Corps to supply the energy needs for their Target Handoff System—a constellation of interconnected devices that provide Scout Observers, Joint Fires Observers, and JTACs  with the ability to self-locate, acquire targets, and refine and relay coordinate data for target engagement. Revision’s SoloPack Batteries and Nerv Centr Chargers provide centralized power that has greatly exceeded expectations—powering the THS for upward of 20 hours, compared to the eight-hour threshold set by the program.

Collaboration with the Air National Guard for the Battlefield Airman Kits began two years ago, in response to JTAC instructors’ request for a higher-capacity alternative power solution with lower weight and less bulk. Revision worked closely with this group to understand their requirements, their equipment, and the integration specifications for their vest load outs. After trials with the Nerv Centr products, the ANG committed to outfitting all of their JTAC instructors across 15 squadrons in the U.S. Successful delivery of this order also included SharePack firmware improvements and the development of a new PRC 117G radio adapter. During this collaboration, the ANG also aided in the development of the user interface of the Nerv Centr mobile app—Revision’s first mobile application (available now in the Google Play store), designed to provide an intuitive interface for soldier-worn power system management, enhancing connectivity, device monitoring, and control over power reserves.

Widget Wednesday: Power to Prevail – The History of the Squad Power Manager

Wednesday, February 13th, 2019

Now part of the Revision Military® Nerv Centr® suite of products, following the acquisition of Protonex® in October of 2018, the Squad Power Manager™ (SPM-622) is an impressive piece of equipment with an interesting backstory.

The current (4th) generation of the Squad Power Manager is a rugged and easily-carried “multi-tool” of power constructed around a suite of intelligent power management algorithms. These built-in smarts enable the Squad Power Manager to run electronic equipment and recharge batteries simultaneously – with no user programming or input required. The SPM also has the capability of scavenging power from any source in the 4-34 Volt DC range – with a converter it can also harness AC power anywhere in the world as well.

The ruggedness, ease-of-use, dependability, and flexibility of the Squad Power Manager have made it a “must have” tool for troops on extended operations and/or deployed in austere environments. So much so, that the National Infantry Association honored the Squad Power Manager with a special feature in the Winter Issue of its official publication, “Infantry Bugler”. A PDF of the article can be downloaded or read online at RevisionMilitary.com. The entire Winter Issue of “Infantry Bugler” can also be read online at the National Infantry Association’s website.
