PROTECTION APLS Thermal Guard Mylar Tactical APLS Thermal Guard Mylar Tactical is a portable absorbent litter that provides maximum thermal protection during emergency transport. Designed by a team of absorbent and military medical experts, APLS Thermal Guard Mylar Tac- tical features an integrated system for improved patient care – the Mylar-lined bag and detachable hood retain body heat, the highly absorbent cellu- lose core wicks fluids away from the patient, and the treated nylon backing protects against wind and moisture. The portable litter also features a rugged skid plate material and two heavy duty buckles for dragging rescued personnel through challeng- ing terrain. Eight closable access points enable medical personnel to better treat the patient at point of injury. APLS Thermal Guard Mylar Tacti- cal can retain 1.7 liters of bodily fluid while safely supporting up to 350 pounds. The innovative litter includes re-sealable pockets for securing medical documents and personal effects. FLIR identiFINDER® R-Series RADIATION DETECTION AND IDENTIFICATION Each handheld identiFINDER can be used to detect, locate, and identify radioactive material. ONE SIZE DOESN'T FIT ALL There's a reason FLIR offers more than one instrument - to pro- vide differing levels of performance that are right-sized for the mission. Different types and sizes of detectors complement one another during a radiological event and provide a greater level of safety. GRAB IT AND GO When operating in stress- ful and hazardous environments, the easy-to- use common operating interface allows users to complete the task at hand without worry- ing about how to operate the instrument. The common screens and data presentation means that users familiar with other identiFINDER handhelds will be able to operate each device immediately. The familiarity between products reduces training time and costs, while increas- ing inter-operability between teams using FLIR instruments. FLIR TOTAL APPROACH FLIR provides cus- tomer-driven, cost-effective solutions across three key product lifetime elements: initial instru- ment purchase, training and deployment, and maintenance. W.L. Gore W.L. Gore's NFPA-certified products provide excellent mobility and durable CBRN protection while helping to reduce heat stress so you can stay actively involved longer. Certified to NFPA 1994, Class 2, multi- threat suits made with GORE® CHEMPAK® ultra barrier fabric enable you to move more easily with an increased range of motion, improved peripheral vision, and excellent dexterity. This lightweight fabric allows you to remain engaged longer by promoting evaporative cooling when its outer layer is wet down. The Extended Response Team (XRT) suit made with GORE® CHEMPAK® selectively permeable fabric is the only breathable garment certified to the NFPA 1994, Class 3 Standard for warm zone environments. The XRT suit allows you to remain on duty for up to eight hours, and its durability gives added confidence about CBRN protection. The Chemical/Biological Protection System (CPCS) made with stretch GORE® CHEMPAK® selectively permeable fabric allows you to operate discretely, while maintaining a ready posture in the event of a terrorist incident. Wearing this breathable undergarment keeps you protected without alarming the public. Innovations in protective gear include a proven thermal guard that can be used during emergency transport, and improved peripheral vision during emergency scenarios , a multithread suit that allows for greater mobility under heat stress situations, and a shelter system with chemical/biological barrier infused into the outer fabric. UTS Systems UTS Systems, LLC provides integrated system solu- tions for CBRN Collective Protection (ColPro), Base Camps, Medical Facilities, and Command & Control. In addition, UTS Systems manufactures a complete line of shelters including Utilis and the innovative UTS Single Skin ColPro with chemi- cal/biological barrier infused into the outer fabric. Our folding frame technology significantly reduces system set-up time and has also been through extensive MIL-STD-810 environ- mental testing to include: blackout, snow load, wind load and durability. The UTS Systems "Single Skin" ColPro system eliminates the need for an additional Chemical and Biological resistant liner saving valuable pack out space and weight. Our shelters do not require a compressor, power, or even a ladder to erect and can be erected in less than 5 minutes. With the UTS shelter system, there is no need to sacrifice durability for speed of set-up and operability. 2016 Annual Warfighters Tactical Gear Guide | Armor & Mobility | 35 2016 ANNUAL WARFIGHTERS TACTICAL GEAR GUIDE
