Geissele Offering SOF Pro-Deal On Vortex SVPS Submission Optic

Wednesday, May 22nd, 2019

Geissele Automatics is offering a pro-deal to SOF Personnel for the Vortex submission to USSOCOM’s Squad Variable Power Scope program. Although it was not selected, it has been in use by SOF for many years and remains extremely popular.

The Vortex Razor 1-6 is combined with a Geissele Super Precision Scope Mount. The throw lever seen is NOT included in the package. Still, this is a phenomenal price for a working optic which both Geissele and Vortex hope will be put to use on working carbines.

Fill out the form and follow instructions for submitted. The form is available here for download.

SVPS Submission Bundle

Wednesday, May 22nd, 2019

With DoD interest in 300 PRC for use as a Precision fire cartridge, CMC Triggers wondered if it could be used in a gas operated rifle. So far, all of the weapons to fire this cartridge have been bolt guns.

This is a sneak peek of the proof of concept CMC put together. Based on an AR design, they wanted to see if it could be done and how it would impact the accessories they make, like triggers and bolt carrier groups. They have no plans to place this into production.

SOFIC: Persistent Systems Announces Hands-Free Full Duplex Audio

Tuesday, May 21st, 2019

MPU5 users can now communicate continuously without having to push-to-talk

NEW YORK, New York. – May 21, 2019 – Persistent Systems, LLC (“Persistent”) announced today that it has introduced a Full Duplex Audio capability to its MPU5 mobile ad hoc network radio, which will be exhibited at the upcoming Special Operations Forces Industry Conference (SOFIC), in Tampa, Fla.

With this new Full Duplex Audio capability, MPU5 users can now speak freely to each other, as if on intercom system, without having to push-to-talk each time they want to communicate. The Full Duplex Audio is multicast across the MANET enabling users to communicate continuously even in complex multi-hop topologies.

“MPU5 users are often in situations that require the use of both hands, such as holding a weapon, operating a vehicle, working with tools, and communicating with their team, all at the same time,” said Eric Stern, Director of Engineering for Persistent. “We built the Full Duplex Audio capability so users can communicate with their team hands-free and maintain functionality for other critical tasks.”

To activate the Full Duplex Audio capability, MPU5 users need only double-tap both buttons on Persistent’s Dual Push-to-Talk (PTT), and they are good to go until the capability is similarly turned off. While Full Duplex is enabled, users can still Push-to-Talk on the Dual-PTT to communicate on other talk groups. The Full Duplex capability works alongside the traditional push-to-talk functionality (not in place of it).

The Full Duplex Audio capability works best with stereo headsets from TEA (Television Equipment Associates, Inc.), which has collaborated with Persistent in developing a fully supported product for MPU5 users.

“For 50 years now, our mission at TEA has been to provide customers with the best communication ancillaries available anywhere in the market today,” said Jeffrey L. Norment, President of TEA Headsets. “By partnering with Persistent Systems and leveraging their vast capabilities and experience within the tactical radio networking arena, TEA continues to supply military personnel with the customized hearing protection they need while being able to maintain communications.” 

The Full Duplex functionality is available as a Technology Preview in Persistent’s 19.4 firmware which is available to all MPU5 customers. For more information on Full Duplex Audio, come by Persistent’s SOFIC booth (1712) at the Tampa Convention Center, on May 20-23, or visit our website: www.persistentsystems.com.
