*At the end of September 2019, Revision Military sold its protective eyewear business along with the Revision Military name. The remaining Armor, Soldier Power, Platform Power and Advanced Concept divisions move forward from that date under the new corporate name of Galvion. The press release below was issued prior to that sale, and therefore appears using the Revision Military name.*
Designed and built in conjunction with Special Operations Forces (SOF) users, Revision Military’s new Caiman Head System reinforces the Company’s standing as the world leader in integrated head protection systems. The Caiman Head System is a true full-spectrum special operations helmet solution, and will be commercially available in stages, starting with the Caiman Hybrid Helmet System. The Caiman Hybrid Helmet System—including carbon bump helmet, a streamlined rail system, and an innovative liner and suspension system—will be available for sale in October.
“This new head system, built from the ground up and tailored to the feedback and specialized needs of SOF users, epitomizes Revision’s forward-thinking, holistic mindset,” said Jonathan Blanshay, CEO, Revision Military. “Revision upended traditional helmet development for this project. The project management team put in untold legwork, going to great lengths to engage key SOF contacts and stakeholders directly, and absorbing unfiltered, informed feedback. This collaborative, iterative process allowed the team to eliminate guesswork and address SOF user demands in real time. Caiman is not a head system created in a vacuum; the contributions from SOF operators are undeniable.”
Optimized for coastal, riverine, maritime, high-altitude, freefall, and ground maneuvers, the Batlskin Caiman Helmet System is designed to withstand an extreme range of environmental conditions--—tropic or arctic, day or night, arid desert or open ocean, and beyond. Revision has also developed a new set of accessories that will enhance this cutting-edge, lightweight helmet for boat, vehicle, HALO/HAHO, mountain, river, and direct action missions. The Caiman system is the first carbon bump helmet in the industry that can be ballistically-enabled with add-on armor appliques for ballistic, blunt-force, blast-force, and fragmentation protection during specialized operations. Skeletonization of all system components has significantly reduced the overall weight, emphasizing scalability and versatility for highly dynamic and unpredictable situations.
