The contract includes the procurement of 293,870 production units, and has a maximum value of $98,111,803. The helmets will be manufactured in Newport, with an estimated completion date of March 6, 2022.

Each unit will end up costing over $334.

Since 2013, Revision’s Newport facility has expanded by 16,000 square feet, and the number of employees that work at the facility has more than doubled.

“Like all Vermonters, I am incredibly proud of the men and women at Revision Military Newport for their hard work and dedication, both of which greatly contributed to Revision being selected for this contract,” said Senator Patrick Leahy. “In past visits to the facility, I have seen firsthand the commitment these employees have to their trade, a commitment depended on by the men and women of our Armed Forces.”

Revision’s Advanced Combat Helmet (ACH) solution is up to 24 percent lighter than the legacy ACH helmet system, and this contract represents the first large-scale, significant advancement in ACH technology in 15 years.

The design pushes the envelope of attainable weight reduction while maintaining superior ballistic protection.

Over Revision’s history, the Company has delivered 1.1 million helmets to the U.S. military, with an additional 300,000 helmets internationally.

Across all of these program deliveries, Revision has never received a single warranty claim for product malfunction or defect, has never had to recall a single faulty product, and has never failed a single Lot Acceptance or First Article test.
