Simex Awarded $3.5M Contract for Headsets & Spares for MSVS Project
Simex was awarded a $3.5 million contract to supply the Canadian Armed forces with RACAL RA120 Slimgard Headsets and spares for the Medium Support Vehicle System (MSVS) Project.
The RA120 Slimgard is a lightweight, noise-excluding headset compatible with a wide range of standard helmets. It is comfortable, reliable, and will not interfere with the use of most respirators, shoulder-fired weapons, or optical devices.
The RA120 has a compact functional design and uses modern materials such as high impact ABS for the moulded slim, noise-attenuating earshells. A soft, adjustable over-strap to support the headset can be worn under or over the helmet.
The MSVS Project is an initiative from the Canadian Government to acquire a new fleet of medium-weight trucks for the Canadian Armed Forces (CAF) to replace the current fleet of logistics trucks. More than 1,500 8×8 Standard Military Pattern (SMP) trucks and other variants are expected to be delivered between 2017 and 2018.
Simex Defence is the sole Canadian distributor of Racal Acoustics products in Canada.
Racal Acoustics is a brand under the Esterline Control & Communication Systems company.
