The Gentex HGU-56/P Rotary Wing Aircrew Ballistic Helmet (ABH) System provides the identical form, fit and function of the standard Gentex HGU-56/P Rotary Wing Aircrew Helmet, with 100% greater ballistic protection. Innovative materials and processes have been adopted to provide unprecedented ballistic and impact protection. Until the HGU-56/P, conventional helmet construction materials limited the ability to produce a single design that offers impact and ballistic protection in a lightweight design. Gentex and the U.S. Air Force collaboratively designed the ABH System to provide optimal protection for search and rescue and special operations missions.

The Gentex ABH System weighs less than 1.5 kg and is engineered for the same cross-platform uses as the standard Gentex HGU-56/P Rotary Wing Aircrew Helmet, such as Army, Air Force, Coast Guard, Law Enforcement and civilian rotary aircraft. It is compatible with existing HGU-56/P accessories, including visor kits, communications systems, night vision goggle mounts, and laser protective eyewear.
