ALPHA 900 Search And Rescue (SAR) Helmet

The World’s First Waterproof Aircrew Helmet

  • Uses the common light-weight ALPHA 900 shell for applications where a crew member needs to disembark but stay in communication with the aircraft
  • Optimized for air-to-sea SAR-operations with a water-resistant design to ensure performance when exposed to water splash and spray
  • Communication has a IP-67 waterproof rating and hardware components are certified to the salt mist exposure standard MIL STD 810F, Method 509.4
  • Improved passive noise attenuation by 2 dB compared to a standard ALPHA 900, to protect hearing and preserve speech intelligibility when operating in open air
  • Compatible with all major aircraft intercom systems and portable radios (standardized adapters)
  • Shares common internal components and visors with standard ALPHA 900 helmet systems
  • ALPHA SAR helmets are in service in many locations throughout Western Europe

High Performance components

  • Uses the same modern, lightweight ALPHA 900 helmet shell adopted by the UK MoD
  • Communications headset uses a waterproof microphone, fully-sealed earcups, and watertight connectors
  • Downlead terminates with a watertight connector that can be switched easily between intercom system and portable radio
  • Salt-resistant nape adjustment mechanism ensures no corrosion inhibits donning and doffing of the helmet
  • Stainless steel hardware used throughout to further resist corrosion
