SOCOM Begins Procurement Of Communications Accessory Suite Land

Monday, April 8th, 2019

Over the weekend, the US Army’s Program Management Office for Special Operations Forces Survival, Support and Equipment Services issued two J&As for the purchase of Communications Accessory Suite Land (CASL) components via GSA. CASL was envisioned as a technologically advanced Communications Accessory Suite compatible and interoperable with the Next Generation Handheld (NGHH) radio (and other legacy radio systems), consisting of a Push-To-Talk, high noise Headset (circumaural or in-the-ear) and associated cables.

Specifically, SOCOM plans to purchase the Ops-Core AMP Communications Headset, Invisio X5 Headset and V60 PTT.

Although, both components of the system were selected almost a year ago, there were apparently software issues which needed to be worked out with SOF radio manufacturer Harris Corp, before fielding could begin.

INVISIO Awarded GSA Status and Contract in the US

Thursday, March 7th, 2019

INVISIO has been awarded GSA status and a Schedule 84 contract by the U.S. General Services Administration (GSA), the procurement arm of the federal government. The IDIQ contract allows federal, state and local government entities to quickly and efficiently purchase INVISIO equipment at pre-negotiated terms and conditions.
The contract was effective starting January 25, 2019 and the GSA contract number is 47QSWA19D0031. It is valid for 5 years with potential of three five-year options to follow.
The GSA Multiple Award Schedule 84 is the culmination of a rigorous solicitation process in which the GSA carefully evaluates companies to determine their capability for providing products to the government. The assessment analyzes a variety of a corporation’s capabilities, including organizational structure, performance history, customer satisfaction, and other source selection criteria.
In awarding INVISIO a GSA Schedule 84 contract, the US federal government has determined that the company is recognized as a preferred vendor and is fully authorized to conduct business directly with government agencies.
“We are very pleased to have successfully negotiated an agreement with GSA in the US. As a qualified GSA contract-holder we can now target our hearing protection and tactical communication products directly to all federal, state and local law enforcement agencies” said Ray Clarke, Head of INVISIO Communications Inc.  “We will be able to reach even more government organizations by marketing and selling our products though this GSA schedule. I believe this could be a game changer for us in the US market”.
The five-year IDIQ (Indefinite Delivery, Indefinite Quantity) contract, with potential of three five-year options to follow, was officially awarded on January 25 under GSA schedule 84, Total Solutions for Law Enforcement, Security, Fire, Rescue, Emergency/Disaster Response – 426 1G-Miscellaneous Non-Personal Law Enforcement Equipment.
“INVISIO Communication and hearing protection systems are world leading and ensures a good hearing protection while allowing the user to communicate in all environments with maintained situational awareness in extreme environments.
Since we opened our own company INVISIO Communications Inc in the US in early 2017, it has been one of our key priorities to have our own GSA schedule so that US government buyers can make purchases easily through our GSA contract.
I congratulate our US team with this great achievement” said Lars Højgård Hansen, CEO of INVISIO.

INVISIO’s Headset Used in Helicopter Stunts in ‘Mission: Impossible – Fallout’

Tuesday, August 14th, 2018

In the latest Mission: Impossible movie, Tom Cruise did his helicopter stunt scenes using an INVISIO headset to secure clear communications in loud, mission-critical situations. 

The INVISIO equipment was chosen for clear, quality communication and safety reasons. Flying a helicopter takes a lot of skills and each piece of the equipment must be carefully selected and inspected. One of the primary reasons for clear communication methods in loud environments is the overall safety of the performer.

“It is very well known that Tom Cruise performs his own movie stunts and we are proud to support him and the rest of the crew in these advanced filming sessions,” said Lars Højgård Hansen, CEO, INVISIO Communications.

”INVISIO was extremely helpful to us during shooting of M:I 6 and it was the adaptation of their military grade bone conduction technology that made it possible for Tom Cruise to fly the helicopters without any visible headsets and also to safely perform the HALO (high altitude – low opening) parachuting sequences. It also allowed me to record dialogue in helicopters and during high altitude free fall,” says Chris Munro, Sound Engineer of Mission: Impossible – Fallout, and double Academy Award Winner for Best Sound Mixing.

DALO places high demands on effective solutions that are integrated with the soldier’s other equipment, contributing to our continuous innovation work. For us, the contract is a clear sign of the continued confidence that the Danish Ministry of Defense has in us and our solutions”, said Lars Højgård Hansen, CEO of INVISIO.
