Beyond Bullet Resistant Plates, Revision currently supplies the DND with Ballistic Eyewear (both spectacles and goggles) as well as best-in-class helmets, all in service of protecting Canadian soldiers.

News release from Revision:

 

Montreal, QC, Canada (November 7 2013) – Revision Military, the global leader in soldier protection solutions, has won the competitive bid to supply the Canadian Forces with new, lighter weight ballistic plates. This body armor will provide troops with superior, highly durable protection while lightening their in-theatre load. Initial deliveries for this contract are anticipated for April 2014. The contract also includes 5 option years.

 

In addition to the Batlskin® Bullet Resistant Plates, the contract calls for the supply of special training plates along with a carrier in which soldiers can readily transport this equipment when it’s not required to be worn.

 

“We are extremely proud that after several years of Research and Development on this program, Revision’s bid has been selected to supply Canada’s soldiers with plates that exceed the highest industry standards and the company’s rigorous Quality Assurance Plans,” said Jonathan Blanshay, CEO of Revision Military. “This contract will be fulfilled at Revision’s Composite Centre of Excellence in Montreal, providing the DND with a Made-in-Canada solution. With significant investment in facility, machinery, equipment, and state-of-the-art ballistic testing laboratories, Revision has entered an exciting new phase of our growth strategy. We expect that this contract will be a springboard for gaining additional ballistic plate business from other advanced militaries in the coming months and years.”

Revision Military has been awarded a contract for supply of additional Batlskin Cobra helmets to the Danish Defence Acquisition and Logistics Organization (DALO).

 

Covering deliveries of additional 3,000 helmets, the order forms part of a seven year contract under which the company has already supplied 4,335 helmets to the Danish military.

 

The helmets were issued by DALO earlier this year to infantry and head-quarters troops deploying to Afghanistan.

 

Revision's CEO, Jonathan Blanshay, said the lightweight, high-performance polyethylene helmets have performed very well during rigorous in-theatre use.

 

''The Danish military was among the very first to identify and realise the benefits that new materials and technology would bring to soldier protection, and the first to buy and deploy the Cobra polyethylene helmet system,'' Blanshay said.

 

The Batlskin Cobra helmet has received positive feedback from soldiers returning from Afghanistan, with the vast majority reporting very positively on its weight, comfort and protection offered in theatre.

 

Fitted with a high-performance modular liner system, ergonomic retention system and multipurpose front mount, Batlskin Cobra is an ultra-high-molecular-weight polyethylene helmet, designed to safeguard soldiers against trauma-blunt force, blast fragmentation and ballistic threats.

 

Besides operating with multiple in-service equipment from night vision goggles (NVGs) to communications gear and weapons sights, the fully modular and integrated helmet can also wear system components in any combination to achieve ideal balance between protection and lethality.

 

The helmets delivered under the new contract will feature Revision's adjustable retention system, high-performance modular liner, multi-purpose front mount, fitted helmet cover and front rails for accessory attachment.

 

In addition, the three-position Visor and high-threat Mandible Guard, components included in the initial contract award, can be used for additional facial protection.

 

Manufacturing work will be carried out at the company's Composite Center of Excellence in Montreal, Canada, while the delivery schedule has not been undisclosed.
