LYNCEA DEFEND command and control system added to LYNCEA product family

NEXEYA adds LYNCEA DEFEND to its product family

The LYNCEA DEFEND command and control system supports the crew with a comprehensive tactical situation assessment, detecting and protecting against asymmetrical threats.

LYNCEA DEFEND was created to defend vessels from typical asymmetrical threats from air, sea and land.

Toulouse, 25 November 2020 – With LYNCEA DEFEND, NEXEYA France, a HENSOLDT company, has created an integrated 360° multi-domain self-defense command and control (C2) system that includes a range of on-board sensors to detect and protect against threats from above, underwater, above the water surface and land.

The LYNCEA DEFEND command and control (C2) system was developed with the goal of supporting the vessel’s crew with a comprehensive tactical situation assessment. The centralization of data accelerates the decision-making process, supports the analysis of critical threats and allows to quickly assign the appropriate countermeasures. To do so, LYNCEA uses advanced software algorithms that analyze behavioral patterns in the vicinity in real-time. Potential threats are tracked and classified according to their threat level using smart decision aids. Automatic visual and audible alarm warnings notify operators of threats. The relevant countermeasures can be assigned manually by the crew or automatically by the system. The LYNCEA surveillance UAV is deployed for damage assessment.

To detect threats, LYNCEA DEFEND uses its long-range navigation radar, an air drone radar, radio frequency (RF) scan detector, a diver detection sonar, laser warner, day and night optical cameras and the LYNCEA surveillance UAV. The countermeasures include a laser dazzler, drone jamming device, underwater loudhailers and LYNCEA’s weapon system.

LYNCEA DEFEND joins the LYNCEA product family as the sixth product, adding to LYNCEA MOBILE as an option for fast boats, LYNCEA PATROL for patrol boats, LYNCEA COMBAT for heavily armed patrol boats, LYNCEA COMMAND for command centers, and LYNCEA TRAINING for training centers.

LYNCEA is already in use on the French Navy’s Floréal Surveillance Frigate, the A69 type Offshore Patrol Vessel and the POM type Patrol Vessel. It is also deployed on vessels of the Navy of Cameroon and the Navy of Senegal.


HENSOLDT is a pioneer of technology and innovation in the field of defense and security electronics. Based in Taufkirchen near Munich, the company is a German Champion with strategic leadership positions in the field of sensor solutions for defense and non-defense applications. HENSOLDT develops new products to combat a wide range of threats based on innovative approaches to data management, robotics and cyber security. With approximately 5,500 employees, HENSOLDT generated revenues of 1.11 billion euros in

Federal Ammunition Introduces New Swift Scirocco II

ANOKA, Minnesota – November 24, 2020 – Federal Premium releases its new Swift Scirocco II centerfire hunting loads lineup. The new bullet promises to push effective range to new extremes while delivering a more lethal blow on impact. Shipments of this product have been arriving at dealers nationwide.

“We are happy to have partnered with Swift to load this fantastic long-range hunting bullet. Swift is known for bonded-core hunting bullets and is one of several Swift bullets that we load into our Federal Premium lineup,” said Federal’s Centerfire Rifle Product Manager Eric Miller. “The Swift Scirocco II produces excellent upsets at various distances and is an all-around, good choice for medium and big-game hunting.”

The Swift Scirocco II bullet’s streamlined design and high ballistic coefficient produce flat trajectories, while retaining more velocity and energy downrange. Aided by its proprietary polymer tip, the Scirocco II expands at minimal velocities yet offers high weight retention at close range thanks to its bonded copper jacket.

Features & Benefits
• Proprietary polymer tip improves ballistics and initiates low-velocity expansion
• Advanced secant ogive maximizes ballistic coefficient
• Tapered copper jacket bonded to lead core
• High weight retention at close range
• Expands reliably at low velocity for long-range terminal effect

Lexington, Ken. (November 2020)GALLS, LLC®, the leading distributor of uniforms and equipment to public safety agencies, knows a tactical pant needs more than looks to get the job done. GALLS Field Operative (OPS) Pants are designed with fit and function in mind whether sitting behind the desk or running after a suspect. Performance is key and GALLS left no detail out.

Our Holiday Season Shopping Suggestions


Every year, at this time, we publish a list of giving ideas which we feel make for some exceptional gifts from pretty terrific companies. This year is no exception! So without further ado…

20201107_172229 (1)

The top spot for 2020 goes to Mantis Blackbeard AR-15 Trigger Auto-Reset System. If it were within our power, Mantis would be awarded product of the year for its Blackbeard. What Blackbeard allows you to do is to dryfire train with your AR-15, in complete safety, without ever having to use your charging handle. When you pull your trigger, the Blackbeard bolt carrier pulses a laser then using some electromechanical wizardry resets your trigger for the next shot. And, don’t be surprised if you see some additional capabilities in the not too distant future. It is a superb training tool. Blackbeard is available with no laser, red laser, green laser or IR laser. When installed on your AR-15 it renders it completely safe.


You can read my review here

Second on the list is Crimson Trace CTS-1100 3.5X Battle Sight. The optical clarity of this sight is impressive, and speaking conservatively every bit as good as the Trijicon TA01 3X sight. Like the TA01, windage and elevation tracks like a bloodhound and has two major benefits: it’s half the price of the TA01 and you won’t need to speed $300 to have the tritium reticle recharged; instead just replace the battery. Crimson Trace has done an extraordinary job with their optics and red dot line and this is but one example of many.


You can read my review here

Third on our list is Bushnell’s LIL P(RISM). This has to be the coolest little prism sight on the market. It’s the ideal companion for your SBR or pistol platform but certainly not limited to that application. Unlike a red dot sight, if you drain your battery the LIL P’s prism ensures that you have an aiming reticle. It is part of Bushnell’s TAC OPTICS.

You can read my review here

Fourth on the list is Streamlight’s TLR-7A and TLR-8A, which by factors of 10 are the best weapon mounted lights on the market in terms of design, robustness and value. Streamlight redesigned the TLR-7 and TLR-8 to improve ergonomics resulting in the A series lights and light/laser accessories. The TLR-7A and TLR-8A support either a high or low activation switch, and did away with the paddles of the TLR-1; thus creating a more compact accessory suitable to the ubiquitous compact pistol frames.


You can read my TLR-7A review here

You can read my TLR-8A review here


Spyderco – It’s impossible to innumerate all of the extraordinary offerings from this Colorado knife and cutlery maker. The company has earned a global reputation for excellence and the admiration of our Armed Forces for the work they’ve done in support of our troops. We had to pick one out of many and I won because I’m the chief cook and bottle washer but Spyderco’s product portfolio is immense.

If you are a fixed blade aficionado, and if you, as I, dig all form of daggers, you’ll want to add Spyderco’s Nightstick to your collection before they sell out. This is an extraordinary offering from Spyderco and a very elegant design from renowned knifemaker Gayle Bradley.

You can read my review here

Last on our list is XS Sight Systems DXT2 NIGHT SIGHTS. XS Sight Systems is a living and breathing example of the ingenuity of our small business sector. The company manufacturers outstanding pistol sights like the DXT2. These sights are combat sights that enable the shooter to pickup the front sight post very quickly. As the company suggests; “just dot the I” XS will also install the sights for you.


You can read my review here

This concludes our recommendations for 2020. In selecting products, we focused on function, durability and value. We selected items from company’s that have demonstrated an unwavering support for their customers and a commitment to innovation and excellence.

Happy holidays from Cherokee Media Group | Auto Remarketing

FAA Moving Forward to Enable Safe Integration of Drones

Zipline drone

WASHINGTON – The FAA published airworthiness criteria for the proposed certification of 10 different Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) or drones as special class aircraft. This is a crucial step to enabling more complex drone operations beyond what is allowed under the small unmanned aircraft rule (Part 107), including package delivery.

“The development of airworthy, durable, and reliable unmanned aircraft is a crucial step forward for this innovative sector,” said Dr. Michael C. Romanowski, director of Aircraft Certification Service Policy and Innovation. “Type certification will help increase both public and regulatory confidence in drone technology as operations become more advanced.”

The airworthiness criteria provide a level of safety equivalent to that provided by existing airworthiness standards applicable to other categories of aircraft, and establish a defined path to type certification for specific drones. Each applicant seeking a type certificate must follow FAA’s requirements and safety objectives.

Airworthiness criteria notices are published in the Federal Register for the following applicants:

The applicants’ drones range from five to 89 pounds and include several types of vehicle designs, including both fixed wing and rotorcraft, and are all electric powered. Each notice outlines the applicant’s proposed UAS for certification and the airworthiness criteria proposed by the FAA.

This is a step in the certification process and does not imply these applicants have earned type certificates. Final determination of whether a specific drone meets FAA safety requirements will occur after the applicant demonstrates they have complied with these requirements.

The public has 30 days to comment on each applicant’s airworthiness criteria, and deadlines are specified in each individual notice. The FAA will consider the comments as it establishes criteria for type certifying each UAS and will publish final airworthiness criteria after the comment period closes.

“Today’s gun owners—younger, female and more diverse across the board—need people within the firearm industry they can relate to, people who speak their language and with whom they can make the personal connection that is needed to keep them engaged and participating in the shooting sports,” said Slaton White, SHOT Business Editor. “Those industry professionals making those connections with today’s gun buyers and recreational shooters are, by and large, under 40 years of age, and it’s high time they were recognized for their talents and innovations.”

More than a few of the nominees work for or with NSSF member companies.

“We are so impressed with what these professionals have accomplished and how they’re building bridges with the public we’ve never had before,” said Chris Dolnack, NSSF Senior Vice President and CMO. “That so many of them work for NSSF member companies speaks to the greater strengths of these brands and their willingness to embrace new ways of communicating with the public.

NEWINGTON, N.H., (November 19, 2020) – SIG SAUER, Inc. is pleased to announce the SIG SAUER Custom Works P320 Fire Control Unit (FCU) is now shipping and arriving at select SIG SAUER Master and Elite Dealers.  The standalone P320 Fire Control Unit (FCU) enables an entirely new level of customization and personalization in the world of firearms; in addition consumers now have the ability to build a completely custom P320 using the P320 Studio at

“The P320 pistol is renowned for both its unprecedented modularity and unmatched capability to become the pistol of choice amongst firearms enthusiasts and all branches of the U.S. Military,” said Tom Taylor, Chief Marketing Officer and Executive Vice President, SIG SAUER, Inc.  “The soul of the P320, and the driving force behind its modularity, is the patented, serialized fire control unit that gives the consumer the ability to build their dream pistol from the ground up.”

The SIG SAUER P320 Custom Works Fire Control Unit (FCU) is a patented, serialized fire control unit (only available at select retail stores) that features a titanium nitride coating and lightened skeletonized trigger with an exclusive FCU Serial Number (FCU ###), and is compatible with 9mm, 357 SIG and 40 S&W calibers.

The P320 Studio gives the consumer a unique online experience to build a P320 pistol from the ground up by choosing a grip module, slide, barrel, guides and springs, optics, or complete CAL-X Kits with the virtual P320 configurator.  All parts available within the P320 Studio are available for purchase direct from

“It’s quite fitting that for the pistol known for its modularity, SIG has found yet another way to introduce an entirely new level of modularity and personal customization to the P320,” concluded Taylor.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE “SABER DOWN,” The New Thriller by Harrison Kone, Available December 2020

Author, Harrison Kone, takes readers on a thrilling ride of intrigue as a MARSOC Special Operations Officer takes on arms dealers, terrorists, and even his government.

Atlanta, Ga.(November 2020) – While on mission near Kandahar, Afghanistan, an IED and ambush take seasoned MARSOC Marine Raider, Captain David Shaw, out of the fight. While recuperating at Camp Lejeune, North Carolina, Shaw learns greater forces within the military are pushing him toward a forced medical retirement, but Shaw is hell-bent on returning to his team in the Middle East. As his team heads to Yemen for a special assignment, Shaw is left with no choice but to observe as a spectator from the inside of a US-based mission room. He watches in horror as their helicopters are shot down by unknown forces. After discovering the identity of the individuals responsible but unable to get to them on his own, Shaw bends the rules and subverts his command to lead a raid against the terrorist leader responsible for the attack on his men. But the mission leads to new questions. Who provided the US-made weapons used in the attack? Who is selling out Marines for profit?

Harrison Kone’s debut thriller, “SABER DOWN” published by Deeds Publishing, takes readers from the sands of Afghanistan to Marine bases in the US; from battle-torn Yemen to the turquoise waters of the Caribbean on a roller-coaster ride of collusion, intrigue, and the heroic actions of the MARSOC Marine Raiders. Inspired by real-world events and his grandfather’s stories as a Marine Corps machine gunner during WWII in some of the toughest conflicts faced by our Marines, Kone pays tribute to the men and women who head toward the sound of gunfire to protect our Country’s way of life and liberty.

“The protagonist in SABER DOWN, Captain David Shaw, was birthed from the question, what does a philosopher warrior look like?” Harrison explained. “My grandfather, who served in the Marines during WWII, fit this bill. At 100, his mind is as sharp as ever. In his play, he wrote his personal philosophy on life and death, war and peace that was heavily influenced by his time on Guadalcanal and Bougainville. My protagonist, in many ways, is the modern incarnation of my grandfather: inquisitive, philosophical, and dedicated to duty. What would happen if this warrior faced corruption, greed, and personal loss? How would he react? What would this philosopher warrior do? Read SABER DOWN to find out.”

“SABER DOWN” will be available at Amazon and everywhere books are sold in early December 2020, for $35.00 for a hardback edition, $21.95 for a paperback edition, and $9.99 for an e-book edition. See the SABER DOWN book trailer here.

“I cannot express my excitement to release this book and connect with a community of engaged readers,” Harrison continued. “My hope is that SABER DOWN provides a thrilling adventure for its readers and that these readers can walk in the footsteps of some of the nation’s most elite warriors. The novel draws on the combat experience of veterans to provide engaging and believable realism. There are no super soldiers, no Captain Americas, just men and women dedicated to a creed, an ideal, that the individual next to you on the battlefield is worth dying for. SABER DOWN honors the teamwork of our special operations communities and that devotion to one another.

They understand that the mission cannot be accomplished alone but through the will of the team. I hope that the readers of this book will be so moved that they choose to live their life in a similar way, striving to accomplish greatness in their own endeavors, leaving no dream to rot in the realm of What if?”

Kone, writer, 2nd Amendment advocate, theologian, and family man, is available for speaking engagements and interviews. Please contact Laura Burgess at for more information on how to engage with the author of this new globe-trotting thriller.

Follow Kone and stay informed on his next thriller at  or Parler.

The Launch Trailer for the MARSOC Thriller, SABER DOWN.

About Harrison Kone:

Author of the debut thriller, “Saber Down,” Harrison’s characters, including the charismatic Captain David Shaw, were inspired by his grandfather, a Marine gunner with the 1st and 3rd Marine Divisions in WWII’s Guadalcanal and Bougainville campaigns, and the many others who have answered the call to military services in defense of our liberty. Harrison’s writing has been featured on the front lines of combating Antisemitism. As an ardent patriot and 2nd Amendment advocate, Harrison enjoys time spent pursuing his passions including outdoor adventures, shooting sports, theology, and most importantly, his family.

Madrid, November 19, 2020.- ISTI (Indra Soluciones Tecnológicas de la Información) and a broad majority of the employees’ legal representation have reached an agreement that puts an end to the consultation process of the labor reorganization procedure that began on 20 October.

During the course of the meetings held in recent weeks, the two parties have made an effort to reach an agreement that minimizes the impact of the restructuring process on the volume of employment, thanks to the addition of social measures, including the following:

· Internal flexibility measures to reduce the number of workers affected by the job amortization and to improve the training and retraining of a large group of employees, such as:

· Suspension of the work contract (ERTE) as a measure to facilitate vocational training and retraining and, therefore, job retention for a maximum number of 125 workers. Over a period of six months the employees will be obligated to undergo the vocational training and retraining program chosen and funded by the company, which will allow them to obtain a certificate of aptitude for certain relevant skills to improve their employability.

· A salary adjustment for a group of employees with earnings significantly above the average for their role or activity to conserve employment, a measure that will affect a maximum of 100 employees.

· As a consequence of the aforementioned, a reduction in the number of workers affected by contract termination measures from the initially planned figure of 1,036 to the definitive maximum figure of 580.

· Mechanisms to protect any employees who, due to their age, are closer to retirement.

· Measures to protect certain collectives that are more vulnerable or deserving of more favorable treatment to enable them to retain their jobs.

· An outplacement plan, thus improving the requirements of the current legislation to protect and promote outplacements and self-employment.

The agreement therefore includes innovative measures which reconcile the need of the company to achieve its objectives of rationalizing and optimizing the workforce, with the importance of permanent training and retraining as well as their application in accordance with social criteria for the protection of collectives with greater difficulties in accessing employment.

This agreement for the transformation of ISTI’s workforce forms part of an action plan announced by Indra last July to overcome the difficulties motivated by structural changes in markets where ISTI and Indra Sistemas operate and adapt to the current market demand, remove inefficiencies and improve the company’s competitiveness. This general action plan focuses on cost efficiency and the prioritization of investments and resources and is based on the proactive management of the new demand, boosting income, leveraging its technological capabilities and speeding up the transformation of its operations. This plan is framed within the context of ongoing negotiations with the employees’ legal representation of Indra Sistemas that started two weeks ago and should end by the first week of December.

Its main lines of action include a reduction of non-personnel costs, improvements to the internal processes and new working models, reorientation of the investment in CAPEX and balance sheet adjustments and the transformation of the workforce.

Introducing Galco’s VHS 4.0 for the Sig P320/M17!

Header Logo

Galco’s VHS 4.0:
Available for SIG-Sauer P320F/M17 with RDS!


PHOENIX, November 2020
VHS 4.0™ is now available for the SIG-Sauer P320F/M17 with and without red dot sights!
Galco’s original VHS™ (Vertical Holster System) was field-proven across the globe from Afghanistan to America. The VHS series provides a very comfortable alternative for those who like Galco’s world-famous Miami Classic but prefer the traditional vertical carry style.
After over a decade of experience with the VHS, Galco has continued to refine, update and improve it. The VHS 4.0 brings recontoured shoulder straps for added comfort and concealment, the introduction of a new harness fastener system, the addition of an innovative new tie-down system, and a new spare ammo carrier for revolver fits.
A key component of all Galco shoulder systems, including the VHS 4.0, is the harness. It uses a four-point harness that pivots independently, connected by our clover-shaped, trademarked Flexalon™ swivel back plate. Along with our patented swivel connectors, this results in a perfect fit and lasting comfort for virtually all body sizes and shapes. The new tool-free harness fastener system offers better security, ease of assembly, and greatly reduced chance of fastener loss.
The VHS 4.0 for comes complete with vertical holster, harness, double ammo carrier, tie-downs and harness fasteners. It’s fully modular, so optional
interchangeable accessories and components may be purchased separately to create a unique shoulder system all your own.
Whether you patrol the perilous sands of the Middle East, metropolitan America on the ground or from the air, exercise your Second Amendment right to bear arms, or stalk the hunting fields of the world, the VHS 4.0 will help you and your handgun stay secure in an often-dangerous world.
