Gentex ALPHA 900 helmet in Suede Blue/Grey with dual visors, FENN NVG mount and Aircrew Hearing Noise Reduction (AHNR) low impedance headset

Designed to Protect

Using an epoxy resin aramid and a carbon fiber shell, the ALPHA 900 helmet is lighter in weight than prior models, while providing necessary impact and penetration resistance. The lighter weight, plus a streamlined design, featuring a ratcheting nape strap retention system and tensioning ear shells, provides added stability and comfort for improved aircrew performance, particularly when flying with NVGs or other helmet mounted systems.

Replaces Legacy ALPHA Helmets

The Gentex ALPHA 900 is the successor to the 200 (rotary & non-ejection seat fixed wing), 300 (fast-jet), and 800 (SAR) ALPHA helmets.  ALPHA helmets are used by countless civilian operators and over 65 air forces and around the globe.

Modular Design with Qualified Capability Upgrades

The unique modular design of the ALPHA 900 allows you to easily change or add capability upgrades to meet your current and future mission requirements. With its adaptable design, the ALPHA 900 is compatible with a wide range of qualified aircraft communication systems, Night Vision Devices (NVG/NVD), Aircrew Hearing Noise Reduction (AHNR) products, Oxygen masks, Dazzle laser protection visors/glasses, face guards/maxillofacial shields, and other helmet system upgrades, all which can be quickly changed or added without impacting the helmet system’s protection or performance capability.

  • 980 gram nominal weight, typical configurations weigh between 1150 and 1400 grams
  • Impact levels not to exceed 300G
  • Passive noise attenuation of 7 dB at 250 Hz, 35 dB at 2000 Hz, and 38 dB at 8000 Hz
  • Fast Jet version certified protection for up to 625 knot ejection

Reduced Logistics and Flexible Assets

With a common helmet shell, replaceable and serviceable spare parts, and accessories, helmet maintainers benefit significantly from a reduced logistics trail. This results in saved time, costs and improved deployment time of helmets to aircrew. Common components also allow fleet managers to easily reconfigure helmet systems to support either fixed or rotary wing application.
