Gentex wins US AAIH contract

28th July 2017 - 14:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Gentex Corporation has been awarded a $13 million contract by the US Army for the delivery of Apache Aviator Integrated Helmets (AAIH), the company announced on 24 July.

The AAIH is an integrated helmet, display and sight system that provides situational awareness and targeting information for Apache aircrew. The helmet is a key component of the next generation Apache helicopter, the AH-64E.

Gentex had previously been supplying the AAIH to the army as a subcontractor under a prior agreement. The helmet is based on Gentex's HGU-56/P Rotary Wing Helmet System, which the company has been supplying to the US Department of Defense since 1993.

Work for the AAIH contract is expected to be complete by June 2022.
