Supplier Denies That The New US Military Helmet Is Based On 'Halo'

•, Amanda Macias
 Developed by Revision Military, a company known for ballistic eyewear, this new modular helmet system was designed for the Helmet Electronics and Display System-Upgradeable Protection (HEaDS-UP) program.

Although the helmet bears a striking resemblance to the kind worn in popular combat warfare game, Halo, suppliers say this is a coincidence.

"I think military industrial designers and the entertainment industry look to each other for inspiration but this product was not modeled after HALO," Revision marketing communications manager Jennifer Zimmerman said. 

The HEaDS-UP system closely compares to Revision Military's readily available Batlskin Head Protection System, which costs between $1,600 – $2,000. The U.S. Army had some specifications, however, after receiving high head trauma and injury reports from troops in Iraq and Afghanistan.
