Micro Cooling System

Microclimate Cooling System

The Microclimate Cooling System (MCS) reduces heat stress to helicopter crewmembers, especially while they are wearing chemical and biological protective equipment in hot weather. The MCS gives Army aviators an increase of more than 350 percent (from 1.6 hours to 5.7 hours) in heat-stress mission endurance times while they are wearing chemical protective equipment or other crew member clothing.

Green Laser Interdiction System (GLIS)

Green Laser Interdiction System

The Green Laser Interdiction System (GLIS) is a rifle-mounted laser that allows the operator to stop hostile actions safely, without discharging a weapon. It can divert, disrupt or delay potential threats before they can engage friendly forces. It is also an effective, non-lethal means to warn civilians that they are approaching a zone of military operations.
