US Army seeks head protection

23rd June 2020 - 16:00 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


VisionCorps has obtained a $24.38 million contract from US Army Contracting Command to provide Integrated Head Protection System (IHPS) suspension systems.

Bids were solicited online with one received.

Work locations and funding will be determined with each order, with an estimated completion date of 18 June 2023.

The IHPS is the next-generation helmet for US Army soldier protection, designed to increase survivability against high-performance sniper rounds.

The system aims to give soldiers a lighter-weight ballistic helmet system that also provides passive hearing protection and increased blunt-impact performance. The helmet system includes accessories such as mandible, visor, night vision goggle attachment device, rails and modular ballistic applique.
