Galvion are to demonstrate at SOFIC 22 the new NervCentr Hub Application developed to support their Man-Worn Power and Data capabilities.
Press Release, Vermont, 12 May 2022: [embargoed 09:00 EST] Galvion, a world leader in the design and manufacture of integrated, soldier-worn power and data management solutions, with operationally proven pedigree in NATO countries, is excited to be demonstrating their new NervCentr* Hub Application at SOFIC 2022. Developed to support their recently launched Man-Worn Power and Data capabilities, the Hub Application offers users the ability to monitor real-time power usage in order to more effectively plan for future missions. Galvion’s new Hub Application, along with the full suite of NervCentr power and data provision and management solutions, and next generation Batlskin head systems, will be on display at SOFIC ’22 in booth #2024.
Missions today depend on charged equipment more than ever before, and the complexity of sustaining soldiers on the battlefield expands and shifts with every new technology. Radios, NVGs, GPS, smart phones, laptops, drones, and other surveillance equipment all demand significant power, and the ability to manage that power efficiently is mission-critical. The new NervCentr Hub Application is designed specifically to make the job of real-time power management for the modern operator much easier.
Simple to use, with an intuitive, easy to understand user interface, the Application allows the user to monitor and analyse power usage. Some features in Live Power mode include estimated remaining run time based on attached power and devices, low power alert and voltmeter to enable optimal solar blanket positioning. The Application also allows for after-mission Power Analysis which offers a more detailed understanding of power usage and allows for comparisons to be made across users. Mission data can then be included in the Power Modeling tool, which analyses historical and modelled power usage in order to predict future mission needs and enable more precise logistic and support planning. This minimises battery burden and maximises run times and efficiency. The NervCentr Hub Application will be available as an enhanced feature for Galvion’s 4-port Power & Data Hub (PDH-4) and will be Android and ATAK compatible.
Kristen Lomastro, President of Active Systems, said: “This is a very proud moment for the Active Systems division at Galvion. Our Software Development group has been refining this Application for a number of years through our future-focused development work, and to now be able to demo this for a wider end-user group is a really important and exciting milestone for the team.” Lomastro continued: “Galvion is well-known for our intelligent power and power management hardware solutions and we see software as the next logical capability enhancement opportunity for operators. Everything that we do here starts with the question ‘how can we make life easier and make missions safer, for the warfighter’. This Application will offer real operational advantages to JTACs, communication specialists and tactical leaders, allowing lighter logistic loads and substantiated, accurate power planning for future missions.”

Revision Military began by providing the very best in protective eyewear to military and tactical users in 2002. Stemming from an initial contract to provide 120,000 sets of Sawfly ballistic spectacles to the Canadian Department of National Defence, the Company grew to be the leading supplier of protective eyewear not only to the US but globally to countries including Germany, the UK, Belgium, the Netherlands, Switzerland and Denmark, among many others. Strategic investments and acquisitions allowed Revision to expand its capabilities and move into adjacent head and torso protective markets. The broadening of Revision’s portfolio shifted the business focus away from eyewear. In September 2019, the Company sold the protective eyewear business along with the Revision Military name. Under its new name – GALVION – the Company will honour its history by continuing to deliver best-in-class protective solutions, maintaining its track record and reputation for excellence, and striving to be innovative problem solvers.
