Simex Awarded $1.5M Contract for Slimguard Spares

Feb 28, 2018

Simex was awarded a 1.5 million CAD contract to supply the Canadian Armed Forces with spare parts for the Slimguard headset.

The Canadian Armed Forces rely on the RA108 Slimgard headset because of its unique design, reliability, and durability. The RA108 is designed for high noise environments, and features active noise reduction (ANR) technology. The RA108 is compatible with all PASGT-style helmets found across the world, as well as as wide variety of other weapons and equipment. The Headsets are designed for greater mobility and comfort. They remain stable on the head when moving over rough terrain due to their neckband and over-helmet strap designs, and patented cushion technology helps reduce soldier fatigue. The RA108 also enables face-to-face communications through a battery powered electronic talk-through which uses microphones mounted on the outside of each earshell.

Simex Defence is the sole distributor of Racal Acoustics products in Canada.

Racal Acoustics is a brand under the Esterline Control & Communication Systems company.
