Colt CM901

Sunday, August 28th, 2011

If you want to get your hands on a Colt CM901 in a more intimate environment than SHOT Show or AUSA then make sure you visit Colt at this week’s Soldier Equipment & Technology Expo & Conference at Fort Bragg.

The Colt CM901 can change calibers from 5.56mm up to and including 7.62 x 51mm NATO, by changing the upper receiver group at the user level. By simply disengaging the takedown and pivot pins, the user can quickly change from a 5.56mm Close Quarters Battle (CQB) to a full length 7.62 x 51mm Extended Range Carbine (ERC) configuration in seconds without the need to re-zero optics already mounted on the upper receiver assembly.

Thursday, August 25th, 2011

Here’s another product to check out at next week’s Soldier Equipment & Technology Expo & Conference at Fort Bragg. Ever have to “figure out” how to calibrate your thermal weapon sight? Infrared Tools developed the CaTTIS as an effective and consistent tool to calibrate a thermal weapon sight. It is easy to set up, easy to use, and works in all environments.

CaTTIS is available in two flavors. CaTTIS I is their original 25 meter zero target which works in all environments and uses chemical heaters for a clear aim point. CaTTIS II is the new 25 meter zero target with works in most environments and is smaller, lighter, and less expensive.

TEA INVISIO X50 MultiCom Headset

Wednesday, August 24th, 2011

The Soldier Equipment & Technology Expo & Conference is next week. Make sure you stop by TEA to check out the INVISIO X50 MultiCom headset.

The Digital Ears X50 is a digital in-ear bone conduction headset system with built-in active hearing protection. It uses bone conduction which captures vibrations caused by speech which travel up the jaw bone to the ear. This helps eliminate ambient noise and produce clearer voice signals. Additionally, the system features electronic hear-thru and impulse noise protection (Noise Reduction Rating (NRR) of 23db) with volume control for enhanced hearing. Finally, the X50 is designed for dual communication with radio autosensing and full-duplex/VOX capability. Consequently, unlike other Invisio products, the X50 is designed to worn in both ears.

The ear piece features the Soft SpringTM which adapts to the contours of the ear to provide a secure fit and enhance comfort as well as compatibility with helmets, eyewear, and protective masks. In fact, the X50′s fit is secure enough that it is well-suited for Military Free Fall operations. Additionally, the interface box seen above features switches for On-Off Open Mic Selector, PTT Button, Volume Up and Down as well as Hear-Thru and Mic Volume Selector.
