ALPHA 900 Helmet

Designed to Protect


ALPHA 900 Helmet (NVG Capable)

The Gentex ALPHA 900 is the most versatile helmet in Gentex’s ALPHA helmet range and iFeaturing a modern and lightweight design, the ALPHA 900 Cross-Platform Helmet System replaces U.K. and other Fielded ALPHA helmets. Designed to be configured for fixed and rotary wing platforms, the ALPHA 900 is an optimal solution for users looking to reduce their logistic trail as the helmet system can be configured to provide a variety of capabilities to suit the flight operation’s specific requirements. The ALPHA 900 is compatible with a wide range of aircraft communication systems, NVGs, Laser Protective Visors, and other helmet system upgrades, including new Aircrew Helmet Noise Reduction (AHNR) technology for protection against increased noise exposure and longer missions (see page 34). The modern, lightweight military helmet system combines decades of experience as the U.K. MoD’s design authority for aircrew helmets with the latest developments in military helmet technology.

ALPHA 900 SAR Helmet

Optimized for air-to-sea search and rescue operations, the ALPHA 900 SAR is the world’s first water-proof rotary wing helmet system. Based on the design adopted by the UK MoD, the IP67 certified system reduces maintenance with a waterproof and salt-fog resistant comms system, which also prevents related comms failures; a watertight communications downlead; and corrosion resistant hardware and nape adjustment. Optimized for interfacing to common SAR radios and configurable for all major aircraft intercom systems, the helmet also provides an additional 2 dB(A) passive attenuation (vs. the standard ALPHA 900 helmet system) for added hearing protection.

s suitable for use in helicopters and fixed wing aircraft. With configurable options including Dazzle laser visors, FENN/ANVIS Night Vision Goggles (NVG), Oxygen Mask receivers, Face Guards and other head borne equipment, it is lighter in weight than prior models while providing the necessary impact and penetration resistance.

ALPHA 900 SAR Helmet

Developed in partnership with wet-winch Search And Rescue (SAR) technical aircrew, the Gentex ALPHA 900 SAR Helmet System is the world’s first waterproof rotary wing helmet optimized for SAR aircrew.
