Notes from DSEi Part 2.
While 2015 DSEi is now behind us, we are still catching up with post-show news!
Notes from DSEi Part 1.
While we have been attending DSEi since 2007, this year’s event totally blew us away with the launch of THOR tactical headgear. Our stand was packed solid for four days and all nine of our Savox hosts were busy showing off our new “baby”. #nobreaks #nolunch!
We had the honor of hosting a number of both official and non-official country delegations to our stand. Here, we can see the Finnish delegation, headed by General Jukka Juusti checking out THOR.

In addition to the Finnish delegation, we also had a number of African, Middle Eastern and other European delegations at our stand. (And, we even got royalty to pay us a visit – but you’ll have to wait for my next blog post to find out about this!)
The media also picked up our unique offering at DSEi. Check these out:
Now returning to our homes, we’ll all be quite busy following up with our contacts from the show, including end users, country delegations, as well as our business partners. We’ve already made a commitment to attend DSEi 2017 and we look forward to showing off even more new products and solutions.

The Savox IMP tactical vehicle intercom solution was first designed and tested in the Far North and is proven to withstand cold and wet conditions. But now we’re pleased to tell you that IMP is also proven to withstand hot and harsh conditions as well, as evidenced by our contractual agreement with a Middle Eastern country’s Defence Forces.

Picture this: You're in a Rigid-hulled Inflatable Boat (RIB) and you're going high speed in rough waters. Water is splashing all over you and it's a pitch black night. You need to stay upright and in the boat, as well as prepare for the impact of the next wave. You also need a reliable intercom system for your on board communications so that you can communicate with your team but, UGH, there's a variety of different radios installed on the boat and they're not "talking" to each other.
So what's the answer? Here are the 4 things you'll want to consider when choosing a RIB intercom system.
1. System Requirements
Authored by Jaakko Havola, Product Manager, Savox Communications
Today’s modern western defense forces utilize a variety of night vision goggles (NVGs) depending on type of troop and specific mission requirements. Most typically the NVG is treated as an add-on solution: The chosen goggles are bolted, screwed and strapped upon an existing helmet. However, newer integrated helmet designs now provide significant benefits in terms of comfort, safety and cost-savings.
What’s so great about newer integrated helmet designs? Here’s the rundown.

Weight & Balance
Old Way: Wearing a traditional non-integrated helmet with NVGs can literally give you a pain in the neck. Not only is the weight of the helmet itself problematic, but adding a night vision goggle as an afterthought compounds the issue because now a counter weight (read “dead weight”) must also be added to keep the entire system positioned correctly on the head.
New Way: Newer, integrated tactical headgear system designs offer distinct advantages concerning weight and balance. In general, newer helmet designs are significantly lighter than traditional helmets. As well, the balance point of integrated helmet designs is optimized from the start to account for goggle use, and at the same time, a centralized power source for the entire system is integrated within the design to provide an optimally balanced helmet and greater comfort for the wearer.
