Fucking finally. Someone has come out with a powered helmet rail system, and there are already companies coming out with systems that integrate with it. Cuts down on the battery weight and wires running everywhere.

So to change out the battery I would have to remove the helmet rail?

Based on the images, it uses the battery that traditionally is used to power your nods. So a replacement  battery would go there. And given the big Army push for a unified battery system, these will probably be some kind of rechargeable lithium battery setup.

Saw this setup today at SOFIC here in Tampa.  Interesting.

You saw it. Did you hold it? (Added weight?) Ask questions? Anything else you can provide from your experience?

Does anyone know if the rail system is an upgrade to current helmets or if it’s a whole new helmet?

I went to a nv class and the instructor had a preproduction version for a year or more to test. Such a streamlined setup

The guys that have hands on might be able to answer, but it looks like something that could be added to any helmet that fits the current rail systems.

Supposed to be able to retrofit to any sf series helmet. Saw comments that the price is likely going to be $2k but idk what all is included in that.

Wonder if it fits the Army's new universal battery.

I’m admittedly ignorant to this but 2k?!  Send a bit pricey.

Price is stupid for what it is.

Is the price for just the rail? Rail and battery pack? Including the brain bucket?
