SOTECH Debuts New Law Enforcement Line at NTOA Conference

Sunday, September 9th, 2012


Looking at all of the gear from patrol bags to plate carriers, SOTECH has innovated a new line of law enforcement nylon products. We are not calling it tactical or SWAT because the system incorporates elements that can be used by patrol officers to active shooter responders to MACTAC to SWAT. SOTECH designers took the position that law enforcement ideas were taken into military designs during the GWOT, and now those ideas have been refined in the military and SOTECH is applying them back into law enforcement in this line. First SOTECH developed a series of tactical products for elite units in LAPD and LASD. Then they combined them into a modular system mounted in a large backpack/trunk bag and removable as military style go bags. This is a major departure from duffel bags that officers lug out from the locker room to their squad cars. The back pack is also sized to strap to a wheel cart. Once in the trunk, modules such as the Mission Go Bag can be dropped on the passenger seat. Customers can purchase a couple applicable pieces for their mission, or they can purchase then entire set. The main pack is designed to carry standard gear like jackets and gas masks plus the packs pictured. The kit is modeled from SOTECH’s mission pack system which is the basis of the Special Forces Medic’s SOF MES set. Check it out at NTOA on Sunday and Monday in Seattle. Items will be released at www.SOTECHTactical.com over the next month.

Paradigm SRP TALON Universal Weapons Mount

Friday, September 16th, 2011

Paradigm SRP provides services from Executive Protection to Foreign Internal Defense risk mitigation and consultations. And now, they’ve added some pretty high tech technology development to their portfolio.

You may have seen the first version of their TALON Universal Weapons Mount on the Discovery Channel series, “Sons of Guns.” The version you saw on the show utilized mechanical gyros, while this new version uses state-of-the-art fiber optic gyros.

Adaptable to many platforms including rotary wing aircraft, vehicles, and maritime systems, the TALON Universal Weapons Mount will accommodate a wide variety of weapons starting with the M4 type carbine for more stable shots to larger and more accurate systems for precision shots such as the .50 (rifle). Additionally, the TALON will mount belt fed systems such as a 7.62 Light Machine Gun (LMG). Furthermore, Paradigm SRP is working on compatibility with the Mk 19 40mm Automatic Grenade Launcher. It is a simple and stable mounting design that does not require permanent alteration for installation but rather uses existing cargo hard points along with common tie-down straps.

Pinpoint precision is now achievable from aerial platforms (ground and maritime as well) due to the TALON’s design. A quick mount system allows the weapon to be attached to the TALON. Stabilization is achieved by incorporating mil-spec fiber optic gyros, high speed servos, and advanced circuitry into a precision machined two axis yoke. Stabilization correction solutions are made at a rate of over one thousand times per second. This is much faster than mechanical gyros.

If you want to know more, make you see the TALON Gun Mount in booth #811 at the National Tactical Officers Association’s 28th Annual Conference 18 and 19 September in Richmond, Virginia.
