03 Jan 11. Silynx Communications, Inc. announced the release of the Micro C4OPS ® – the first in a range of upcoming new products. Expanding upon the success of its predecessor, the Micro C4OPS is a miniaturized and enhanced version of the C4OPS. Built WITHOUT a battery compartment, the Micro C4OPS draws parasitic power from the radio it is connected to resulting in a lighter weight, smaller form factor control box. The Micro C4OPS design incorporates many lessons learned and end user feedback. The modularity of the 20m immersible Micro C4OPS provides interchangeability with headset configurations including the in ear headset config, covert config, maritime config, and earmuff config. The Micro C4OPS includes a new AN/PRC 152 side connector and enhanced software to remote control the AN/PRC 152 and JEM channels with customizable voice tags. Smart features include built-in GPS for blue force tracking (BFT) with user location read out and auto whisper mode, auto net monitoring, and dual wireless PTT with hear thru and volume remote control. The system is delivered with 5 sizes of color-coded foam ear plugs and three types of ear retainers to provide a secure fit. Additionally offered are custom ear molds (vented for HAHO/HALO and non-vented). The Micro C4OPS and DWPTT are also available in MultiCam® pattern. Silynx plans to launch a range of additional cutting edge products in the coming weeks.
07 Jan 11. Industry Leader’s Cutting Edge Styles in New Product Showcase. Wiley X® has been trailblazing with performance, protection and fiercely stylish product lines in the hunting, shooting and tactical markets since 1985. So it’s no surprise that the go-to brand for millions of extreme professionals, athletes and enthusiasts worldwide is stepping up for the biggest show in the industry, SHOT Show 2011, with an exceptional new lineup of eyewear and accessories. Center stage in the show’s New Product Showcase will be the Wiley X Saber Advanced™ from the company’s wildly popular Changeable Series. With an industry-leading solid 3.0mm thick lens, this new line meets both stringent MIL-PRF-31013 military ballistic and ANSI Z87.1-2003 high velocity standards, and its lenses are crafted with Selenite™ polycarbonate, making them the thickest, most durable lenses available in the tactical/shooting eyewear market. The system comes with either a single or dual lens option, tailored to fit a variety of shooting environments, along with 100% UVA and UVB protection and optional prescription plug-in. Wiley X will have two exhibits at the show, booth #128 and #20220, and will be generating additional buzz with its new high tech, high performance Wiley X Black Ops™ line — black on black shades in some of the company’s most popular styles, created for elite-level military and law enforcement personnel and dedicated shooters. Each “operative” in the series has the unbeatable attributes of Wiley X’s High Velocity Protection™ (HVP™) combined with powerfully, cool sleek designs.
