The Olympia Bomb Suit V50 protection levels have been tested in accordance with
STANAG 2920 (17gr FSP) protocols. All testing has been carried out by independently
authorised and accredited test centres.
The Olympia bomb suit helmet has undergone a rigorous design and development programme and
incorporates all of United Shield’s experience and expertise as one of the leading manufacturers in the world
of ballistic helmets. It has a streamlined profile resulting in reduced radial and linear head acceleration in a
blast situation. The liner provides accurate sizing and fit for users, while ensuring maximum comfort. The
helmet uses a closed face visor which provides an excellent field of vision with minimal distortion.
Ventilation for the helmet is provided by an assisted air purification system. It consists of a waist mounted battery powered air blower with two high efficiency particulate (HE) filters.
The blower assembly is powered by 1 Ni-MH 4.8 volt rechargeable pack.
The assisted air purification system provides a minimum of 145 litres per minute constant airflow through the helmet and over the visor, this prevents misting up and provides cooling.
5. COOLING SUIT:
The Cooling Suit is designed to offer a safe and cool environment for people who must maintain a high level of efficiency and concentration under extreme heat. The system is ideally suited for personnel involved in EOD/IEDD operations.
The Cooling Suit uses ice cold water to remove body heat produced during strenuous work, especially in hot environments. It requires no hazardous pressurised canister or toxic cooling agents, the Cooling Suit also
offers protection against heat and flash fire. Testing of the Cooling Suit on the effects of over pressure,
fragmentation, ballistic, body impact and heat have shown it to be suitable for wearing under bomb suits,
chemical suits and many other applications where body heat removal is desirable.
It is a one piece fire resistant garment with cooling tubes and external connectors, and is worn as close to the body as possible to obtain the maximum benefit. It has a head hood with connectors, which connect to
corresponding connectors on the neck of the garment. There is an external pump and ice/water bottle
container which is housed in a self contained carry bag attached to the left hand side of the suit. The cooling
suit is made from machine washable fire retardant Nomex.

6. COMMUNICATION SYSTEM:
Hardwire Communication System PTT
The Olympia bomb suit communications system provides full duplex communications between EOD Commander and EOD Operator over 100m of field cable, and is designed for simplicity in use and ease of deployment.
The Integrated Helmet Communications Headset consists of twin ultra low profile earpieces and a noise cancelling microphone, which connects to the common user unit via a rugged 80mm Press To Talk (PTT) unit with clothing clip. The helmet connector is a quick dis-connect Nexus plug and socket, whilst the 80mm PTT connection to the user unit is via military spec amphenol plug.
The EOD Commander’s headset is a military style robust single sided headset with flexible boom microphone and a mesh head strap, an in-line PTT with clothing clip.
The user unit is common to both EOD Commander and EOD Operator, powered by standard AA batteries for maximum flexibility, the unit is turned ON whenever a headset or 80mm PTT unit is connected. Each unit has user volume control, LED power ON indication and mil spec amphenol socket for headgear connection. The easy connect line termination posts are suitable for screw-down connection of cable, or banana plug use.
