AbstractExplosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) Technicians must maintain intense focus during the disposal of hazardous materials. EOD bomb suit helmets are both heavy and bulky, in part due to the oversized face shield and the heavy plastic visor. The hefty visor also reduces balance of the face shield which can become a distraction to the Technician. Safe has developed the MaxPro (TM) face shield incorporating Safeâ€™s advanced CrystalShield (TM) armor technology. The combined system will provide an increase in ballistic protection (V50 2,600 ft/sec for 0.22 FSP) while weighing only 2.5 pounds. The MaxPro face shield offers improved functionality of the face shield with single-push button operation of the flip-up/flip-down visor. Also proposed are optional features to support lighting and defogging. The unique design of the MaxPro system also allows easy interchange-ability between the EOD helmet and the Advanced Combat Helmet requiring only the addition of a lightweight mount to the ACH. Combined, all of these features provide a remarkable enhancement to personnel protection.
