A New Approach to Protective Communications for the IHPS Helmet

Avon Protection Ceradyne in conjunction with 3M™ PELTOR™ are pleased to offer a new integrated headset adapter solution for use with the U.S. DOD Integrated Head Protection System (IHPS).

The Avon Protection Ceradyne IHPS headset adapters allow for select 3M™ PELTOR™ ComTac™ headsets to be seamlessly mounted to the rails of the IHPS helmet. This new solution integrates exceptional ballistic performance with hearing protection and communications, while providing improved comfort for the user.

Integration with other soldier systems is always front of mind when we design and engineer new products for our customers. This new accessory for the IHPS is an example of our commitment to providing users with the most comfortable and flexible integration solutions.

Designed for the Army to improve operational flexibility, Avon Protection Ceradyne’s rail mounted headset adapters offer advanced ergonomics and comfort when connected to a compatible 3M PELTOR headset. This new solution provides the user with the ability to adjust their headset position without removing their protective helmet or compromising the radio transmission monitoring during a mission.

We are excited to work with Avon Protection Ceradyne to deliver an innovative integrated personal protection solution and provide our soldiers with a tactical communication and hearing protection system that is comfortable and built to last.
