Carbondale, PA, June 10, 2015. Gentex Corporation, a global leader in integrated helmet systems for defense forces, will demonstrate the latest in its ALPHA line of aircrew helmet systems, the ALPHA 930 series, at the Paris Air Show June 15th through 21st. The ALPHA 930 series incorporates advanced features designed for the French Direction Générale de l’Armement (DGA) for use in over 25 types of fixed and rotary wing aircraft. The 930 series provides cross platform compatibility with industry leading protection and capability upgrades to suit the unique needs of the Aviation Légère de l’Armée de Terre (ALAT), Armée de l’Air (AA) and Aéro Navale (AN), supporting personnel serving on the ground, at sea, or in the air.
The lightweight ALPHA 930 helmet systems are built to enhance situational awareness by offering a variety of Night Vision Goggle (NVG) integration options, a lip light, and a dual visor housing for day and night operations. Additional performance enhancing and protection capabilities such as communications and Active Noise Reduction (ANR) for high-noise environments further enable situational awareness. The combination of the impact rated, flame resistant shell, and the optional face guard and oxygen mask for high altitude operations, provides industry leading protection while supporting various operational needs.
