Integrated Headborne Platform Available to Commercial Customers.

CARBONDALE, PA, May 7th, 2024 – Gentex Corporation, a global leader in personal protection and situational awareness solutions for defense forces, emergency responders and industrial personnel, announced today that they have launched the Ops-Core RAILINK power and data system to the broader market.

Until now, Gentex has been dedicated to fulfilling critical U.S. Department of Defense orders. With this announcement, limited quantities of RAILINK systems will finally be available to commercial customers.

“RAILINK is the first-of-its-kind and market-leading power and data-capable ARC Rail system, developed in collaboration with some of the world’s most demanding end users. RAILINK was designed to simplify the life of the end user and to provide a platform to integrate an ever-expanding list of electronic capabilities for, and between, users. Initially developed for highly demanding customers within the U.S. Department of Defense, we realize the clear cross-over advantages of RAILINK also apply to federal government, state and local law enforcement agency users, and offer a giant step forward to anyone operating or training for around-the-clock operations,” said Tom Short, Vice President of Ground Systems at Gentex Corporation.


The RAILINK platform facilitates integration of a broad range of unique capabilities on the headborne system. Powered by a central Battery Pack feeding power to, and sharing data between, an array of smart nodes and a VAS/NVG interface, RAILINK improves protection and lethality by increasing the effectiveness of the user and reducing their burden.

RAILINK will be sold through Gentex’s global network of Retail Distribution Partners and the company’s e-commerce platform.
