"Gentex Corporation, a global leader in personal protection and situational awareness solutions for defense forces, emergency responders, and industrial personnel has been awarded a $13,443,811 USD firm-fixed-price contract by the U.S. Army for the delivery of Apache Aviator Integrated Helmets (AAIH).

Worn by Apache helicopter crews, the AAIH is an integrated helmet, display, and sight system with improved safety features and comfort that provides situational awareness and targeting information. The integrated helmet is a key component of the next generation Apache helicopter, the AH-64E, which will be flown by over 15 countries.

"Providing the helmet to the Army directly allows for better pricing, and streamlined engineering and integration support."…"
