Revision Military has won a contract for PEO Soldier's Integrated Head Protection System (IHPS) Soldier Protective System (SPS), aiming to develop the US Army’s next-generation helmet system.
Revision's IHPS small arms helmet serves as the foundation for the company's proposed head protection system. The helmet draws on the company’s HEaDS-UP ATO helmet, with a shell design that contours the shape of the wearer's head, increasing their area of coverage and protection while reducing system weight and unneeded space.
The system weighs less than existing combat helmets and includes upgradeable mandible and visor protection. It also features a retention and netted suspension system with dial-in comfort settings and high-impact ballistic padding. The suite includes modular ballistic armour plates that can be applied to the helmet's exterior for an increased level of protection.
Jonathan Blanshay, CEO, Revision, was quoted as saying by Shephard, “Revision is proud to have been selected as a development partner for the US Army's next-generation head protection system. With lineage emerging from NSRDEC's HEaDS-UP Program and our history in protecting the soldier, the IHPS is a tailorable protection suite that will increase survivability through capability and technology.”
POE Soldier plans for this programme to conduct iterative human factors testing leading to ballistic and non-ballistic testing and the eventual fielding of an initial quantity of 7,000 systems to a US Army Brigade, prior to moving into full rate production. The army intends the IHPS SPS system to be their next, widely fielded head protection system.
Revision Military has been selected to supply the Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) - Troop Support with 90,000 Advanced Combat Helmets (ACH) under a new contract announced on 13 January, valued at $21 million. The order follows the companys recent selection as a development partner for the US Army's Integrated Head Protection System (IHPS), which aims to develop the army's next widely-fielded head protection system
