Ceradyne and Wilcox Industries Introduce the MOHAWK Boltless Combat Helmet at AUSA
The MOHAWK Boltless Combat Helmet is based on a boltless retention system design with minimal inside surface obstruction. The helmet is further enhanced with a multi-conductor central modular bus bar system integrated into the helmet shell with multiple universal mounting points to attach any combination of powered helmet accessories. This also eliminates the need to utilize a ballistic bolt to attach Night Vision Goggles (NVG) to a combat helmet. The simple and cost-effective design offers a lightweight helmet solution by combining power sources and eliminating battery packs for each device. Also included is a simplified, lighter NVG attachment using redesigned molded edge trim with no shell holes for the NVG attachment.

Marc King, President of Ceradyne Armor Systems and Jim Teetzel of Wilcox Industries Corp., both commented: "This helmet is a significant technology step forward in reducing the warfighter's dependence on multiple power sources for helmet mounted warfighting components, and the helmet safety performance is improved by eliminating suspension system bolts."
