Designed to support the U.S. Army Air Soldier Program objective to reduce the weight and bulk of flight safety equipment for extended mission requirements of rotary wing aircrew, the HGU-56/P Rotary Wing Helmet System weighs less than the legacy HGU-56/P RWH System, making it easily wearable during extended use while maintaining industry-leading impact-protection levels.
- Advanced lightweight retention and suspension system increases comfort and stability while reducing weight by 50 grams.
- Updated Gentex energy attenuating liner improves situational awareness by shifting the head forward inside the helmet to provide an increasing field of view by 3 degrees.
- Offers the same industry-leading impact protection levels as the previous version.
- Advanced lightweight retention system improves stability while maintaining compatibility with Helmet Mounted Display (HMD) systems, Oxygen delivery systems and communication equipment.
