SHOT Show 20 – Wilcox FUSION System

Wednesday, January 29th, 2020

Wilcox Industries has been working on powered weapon rails for years, but now International customers are beginning to field their FUSION system.

Wilcox refers to FUSION as an “electrical power management system” which provides centralized power to the weapon’s accessories via a removable Battery Management Power Supply System for CR123A with primary and backup power switch. It also works as a data bus.

This waterproof battery case powers the system and is mounted to the 6 o’clock position just in front of the magwell.

The system is modular. The triangular inserts are for heat mitigation with a Remote light/laser Activation Switch which can also be inserted into these slots. The light module was developed with SureFire and uses their Vampire head for White and IR illumination. Like everything else, it’s is removable and the compact form factor is thanks to the central power source.

Below, you can see FUSION Reflex Sighting System and 3X magnifier with flip mount. The Reflex Sight is based on Wilcox’s BOSS.

The final component to FUSION is BTAC, a software system which serves as a Blue Force Tracker and fuses data from other Wilcox systems like the RAPTAR-S rangefinder. In addition to a power and data bus, FUSION incorporates a shot counter which can be depicted on the Reflex Sighting System. It can also monitor the temperature of the weapon.

Additional accessories are under development. Wilcox has also developed other versions of FUSION for other weapons like the Beretta ARX160.

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.
