Galvion introduces expanded options to its Batlskin Cobra® helmet platform to UK and Europe at DVD ‘22

Galvion, a world leader in innovative head protection systems and power and data management solutions, with operationally proven pedigree in NATO countries, is excited to be introducing their new Cobra Hi-Cut combat helmet to UK and European markets at DVD 2022. The new helmet has been developed to expand the Cobra helmet platform range and specifically, to enable the use of a wider range of communication and hearing protection systems. Galvion’s new Hi-Cut Batlskin® Cobra helmet, along with the full suite of Nerv Centr® power and data provision and management solutions, will be on display at DVD 2022 on booth C3-502.

Galvion’s Cobra helmet system was one of the first ultra-high-molecular-weight polyethylene shells introduced with a comprehensive suite of modular components to accommodate widely used head-borne accessories, allowing soldiers to quickly up-armour to suit mission needs. It further revolutionized the market with its customizable, comfort-fit Modular Suspension System (MSS), offering not only a lighter weight helmet, but a more comfortable one, while still providing superior levels of blunt force and ballistic protection. Since its introduction in 2012, Galvion has delivered over 200,000 Cobra systems to UK and European users.

Peter Rafferty, Galvion’s UK President said: “We continue to deliver our Full-Cut Cobra helmet systems today, and also offer customers refurbishment programs, including upgrading with rail systems and to our APEX liner system, which is optimized for long-term comfort and offers full-coverage impact protection.” Rafferty continued: “The new Cobra Hi-Cut variant was developed in response to continued and growing needs to accommodate a wider range of communication, situational awareness and hearing protection systems as well as the need to provide an expanded platform for accessory integration. This new cut retains all the functionality and protection levels that end-users expect of a Galvion head system. We’re proud to offer additional options for our UK and European customers to ensure through-life value for our helmet platforms.” He added: “Looking ahead, Galvion will continue to work with key partners around the globe to reshape the next generation of integrated head systems to meet the ever-changing needs of tomorrow’s battlefield.”

Revision Military began by providing the very best in protective eyewear to military and tactical users in 2002. Stemming from an initial contract to provide 120,000 sets of Sawfly® ballistic spectacles to the Canadian Department of National Defence, the Company grew to be the leading supplier of protective eyewear not only to the U.S. but globally to countries including Germany, the UK, Belgium, the Netherlands, Switzerland and Denmark, among many others. Strategic investments and acquisitions allowed Revision to expand its capabilities and move into adjacent head and torso protective markets. The broadening of Revision’s portfolio shifted the business focus away from eyewear. In September 2019, the Company sold the protective eyewear business along with the Revision Military name. Under its new name – GALVION – the Company will honour its history by continuing to deliver best-in-class protective solutions, maintaining its track record and reputation for excellence, and striving to be innovative problem solvers.
