Testing, Protocols, and Design
- Designed and Tested in accordance with Gentex PRS-1005 Product Specification for the Ops-Core ACH 360°Liner.
- Meets Blunt Impact Protection as stated in U.S. Army Purchase Description Helmet, ACH CO/PD-05-04: 30 October 2007. (Blunt Impact Protection is measured with fourteen impacts in seven locations at 10 Feet Per Second on a Hemispheric Anvil with no impact measuring over 150 Gs of force; tested in ambient, hot and cold conditions).
- Meets 9mm 124gr FMJ RN at 1400 fps (+/- 50 fps) Resistance to Penetration (RtP) and Ballistic Transient Deformation (BTD) as stated in U.S. Army Purchase Description Helmet, ACH CO/PD-05-04: 30 October 2007. (Ballistic Transient Deformation is measured using the 9mm 124gr FMJ RN projectile impacting the helmet on a clay head-form and measuring the depth of the crater with no deformation greater than 16.0mm on the sides and crown, and no deformation greater than 25.4mm on the front and back).
- Environmental affects testing: seawater resistant; weatherometer (accelerated aging); high temperature operating and storage; cold temperature operating and storage; field agent resistant (DEET insect repellant, gasoline, motor oil, petroleum based hydraulic fluid, fire resistant hydraulic fluid, diesel fuel oil, aviation turbine fuel, rifle bore cleaning compound, weapons lubricating oil, weapons artic lubricating oil, and face paint).
- Main element of liner constructed of 45 g/l density Expanded Polypropylene (EPP) material.
