Adopted by USMC and Air National Guard JTAC
Revision Military, a leader in integrated, soldier-worn power management solutions, successfully supplied numerous NERV CENTR power management systems to key customers in the US Marine Corps (USMC) and Air National Guard (ANG) Joint Terminal Attack Controllers (JTAC).
“Revision’s Power division is a prime example of our unyielding commitment to meeting troop needs head on,” Jonathan Blanshay, CEO, Revision, commented. “If we see any opportunity to leverage our capabilities to improve warfighter equipment, in any capacity, we are going to pursue it relentlessly. The development of the NERV CENTR family of products—solutions designed to suit the real-world needs of troops on the ground, so they can count on longer-lasting energy reserves on extended and remote missions—fully embodies this pursuit. Revision’s power capabilities have grown significantly since we first staked out this territory in 2014, and we are poised to expand further with the recent acquisition of Protonex [full story here]. The recent traction of the NERV CENTR line and this exciting partnership with the Air National Guard is a testament to our tenacious mindset, and reinforces all the work we’ve put in to get to where we are today.”
Revision was selected by ANG to supply NERV CENTR power management solutions for their Battlefield Airman Kits, for use by JTACs. Revision has delivered 652 kits, each of which includes a NERV CENTR SharePack Power Management System, a NERV CENTR SoloPack Battery, an Enhanced Charger and select cables.
This order by the ANG builds on several recent successes for Revision’s Nerv Centr family of power management products. Especially noteworthy is Revision’s work with the USMC to supply the energy needs for their Target Handoff System – a constellation of interconnected devices that provide Scout Observers, Joint Fires Observers and JTACs with the ability to self-locate, acquire targets, and refine and relay coordinate data for target engagement. Revision’s SoloPack Batteries and Nerv Centr Chargers provide centralised power that has greatly exceeded expectations—powering the THS for upward of 20 hours, compared to the eight-hour threshold set by the programme.
Collaboration with the ANG for the Battlefield Airman Kits began two years ago, in response to JTAC instructors’ request for a higher-capacity alternative power solution with lower weight and less bulk. Revision worked closely with this group to understand their requirements, their equipment, and the integration specifications for their vest load outs. After trials with the Nerv Centr products, the ANG committed to outfitting all of their JTAC instructors across 15 squadrons in the US.
Successful delivery of this order also included SharePack firmware improvements and the development of a new PRC 117G radio adapter. During this collaboration, the ANG also aided in the development of the user interface of the NERV CENTR mobile app- Revision’s first mobile application (available now in the Google Play store), designed to provide an intuitive interface for soldier-worn power system management, enhancing connectivity, device monitoring, and control over power reserves.
