OverviewRA315 Integrated Helmet System

 The RA315 is integrating communication headset and helmet. It is suitable for Combat Vehicle Crew applications.

Key Features

  • High noise attenuation circa 35 dB with ANR
  • Talk-Through
  • Choice of soft liner and ballistic shell
  • New, improved earcushions
  • Retrofitable digital ANR


The RA315 may be configured for all the popular intercom systems that support ANR, which leads to improved speech intelligibility and hearing protection for crew, a given in high noise vehicles.

A choice of soft liners offer excellent bump protection and ventilation, and depending on choice of liner, the headset may be configured with or without a neckband spring, which ensures an optimum fit and maximum comfort.

The liner supports a choice of removeable outer ballistic shell that can be removed and stowed when the vehicle is closed down and may be bump only or ‘ballistic’ with a choice of size, color and rating (400-650, V50 rating).

Appropriate EMC shielding measures ensure protection to radiated field strengths up to 50V/m; important for crew in a head-out situation, close to radio antennae.


The RA315 may be used in Main Battle Tanks, AFV’s and other tracked, high noise vehicles. It is also suitable (without ANR) for ground crew requiring head protection.

Ordering Information
