THOR Tactical Headgear Makes DSEi Debut

Posted by Mikael Westerlund on Sep 23, 2015 11:00:00 AM

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!

Special Visitors

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.

Media Buzz

The media also picked up our unique offering at DSEi. Check these out:

Keep Talking – Choosing a RIB Intercom System

Posted by Mikael Westerlund on Aug 13, 2015 11:00:00 AM

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.

Are NVGs Giving You a Pain in the Neck?…….. Not Any More.

Posted by Jaakko Havola on Aug 9, 2015 9:13:00 PM


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.
