HGU-56/P Improved Rotary Wing Helmet

Lightweight for Extended Missions

Description

The Gentex HGU-56/P Rotary Wing Helmet System has been improved to support the United States Army Air Soldier Program objective to reduce the weight and bulk of flight safety equipment to support the extended mission requirements of rotary wing aircrew. The HGU-56/P Improved Rotary Wing Helmet System weighs less than the standard Gentex HGU-56/P Rotary Wing Helmet System, making it easily wearable during extended use. By utilizing an innovative lightweight retention and suspension system, the improved Gentex HGU-56/P increases comfort and stability. Additional design changes to the Gentex Energy Attenuating Liner (EAL) provide even better situational awareness by shifting the wearer’s head forward to increase field of view.
