Simex awarded $5M contract for headsets and parts
Simex was awarded a contract worth over $5 million CAD to supply the Canadian Armed forces with RACAL RA108 Slimgard Headsets and spares.
The RA108 Slimgard headset 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.
