There are a few big things that make the United States Army the best in the world: excellent volunteers, great training, and the most advanced gear available. And one of the most important pieces of gear any soldier can carry is their helmet. Thanks to Ceradyne, a 3M company, that particular wearable is getting a big boost.

A component of the Army’s Soldier Protection System (SPS, for short), the IHPS (Integrated Head Protection System) ballistic helmet is perhaps the most advanced head protector ever created – thanks to its advanced materials, sci-fi styling, and modularity. In fact, it was designed to be able to withstand the impact of handgun bullets and rifle projectiles, as well as other blunt impacts. It also offers a measure of hearing protection and can even be equipped with add-ons, like night vision goggles, more modular ballistic armor, a visor, and more. This space-age Army helmet is set to be put into use early this year.
