Some background on the system

Part of the Special Operations Forces Personal Equipment Advanced Requirements, or SPEAR Family of Tactical Headborne Systems.This specific notice is for coxswains — primarily Special Warfare Combatant-Craft Crewmen, specially qualified sailors who operate advanced SEAL watercraft.

The Caiman system offered for SPEAR FHTS is based on the Caiman Hybrid High Cut helmet (also known as Carbon Bump) with optional ballistic appliques: front (larger, covering almost ¾ of the side surface of the helmet, and covering almost the entire helmet in a top view, profiled in the area of night vision mounts) and rear (smaller), directly attached to the shell via industry grade hook and loop. Modular design provides greater flexibility because, depending on the tactical situation or user preference, Caiman can be used in a non-ballistic version or its ballistic resistance can be tailored for a specific operation – the appliques can be ‘worn’ as a set or in the form of the front one only. It makes it possible to use one solution in many scenarios. The Hybrid High Cut helmet is perfect for situations where ballistic protection is not required, e.g. for training, mountain or water ops, as a stable and lightweight platform for night vision goggles for patrol operations where the helmet, even if very light, would cause discomfort if used for a prolonged period of time. A modular helmet also prevents situations when a ballistic helmet would have to be carried in a backpack (it would have to be pulled out only after reaching the objective), where it would take up valuable space. The ballistic appliques do away with additional weight and take up much less space after packing.

Ballistic Appliques, are fixed to the shell with the use of durable Velcro. In addition, the rear applique is stabilized with a horizontal strap to the side rail screws. There is hardly any need to worry that any of the components will become detached on their own, even during parachute jumps.

The shell of the Caiman Hybrid helmet is about 5 mm thick and has ten slits for ventilation. The carbon fibers offer high resistance to mechanical impact and crushing, hence their choice as a base. With the addition of modular appliques, the High Cut helmet becomes a ballistic helmet that provides resistance to 1.1 gram of fragments moving at 670 m/s and to 9 mm Parabellum, 44 Magnum, and 357 SIG rounds (NIJ 0106.01 Level IIIA). T this is not the highest possible level of ballistic protection, but such requirements have been set by USSOCOM for the FHTS program since it is about maintaining an appropriate balance between weight, area of protection, and mobility and comfort.
