Revision Military wins ACH Gen II contract
Revision Military will deliver Advanced Combat Helmet Generation II (ACH Gen II) helmets to the US Army under an IDIQ contract announced on 21 March.
The five year contract, worth up to $98 million, will run through to March 2022.
The army was seeking a weight reduction of 15 percent with this new generation helmet compared to the legacy ACH currently fielded. Revision has achieved this and more, with its ACH Gen II weighing in at 24 percent lighter than the ACH helmet system while retaining advanced ballistic protection.
Jonathan Blanshay, CEO, Revision Military, said: 'With this solicitation, PEO Soldier challenged the helmet industry, raising the technology bar substantially. Revision answered in a big way, dedicating significant resources to set a new standard for lightweight helmet design and performance.'
