HENSOLDT UK presents a new generation of its Integrated Navigation System

HENSOLDT UK presents Manta NEO

Manta NEO is the next-generation of the Kelvin Hughes Integrated Navigation System (INS), designed for all types of vessels up and to and including the largest state-of-the-art cruise ships.

At Europort in Rotterdam, HENSOLDT UK presents Manta NEO, the next-generation of its Kelvin Hughes Integrated Navigation System (INS), designed for all types of vessels up and to and including the largest state-of-the-art cruise ships.

Rotterdam, Netherlands, 07 November 2019 – Manta NEO has its roots in the original concept INS, going back to the early 2000s.

Introducing a simplified menu structure similar to mobile phones, as well as a much faster processor and a more secure Android-based platform, Manta NEO is the innovative successor of the original Manta. Manta NEO offers a market leading user interface for ease of operation, with full integration to all existing navigation equipment and sensors.

“When developing Manta NEO, our intent was to create a common structure across all integrated products within the platform,” explains Kevin Robertson, Director Cruise & Special Projects. “We have also made better use of the screen area to show radar and the information provided by the Electronic Chart Display and Information System (ECDIS). The new Manta NEO Multifunction Displays (MFD’s) provide configurable access to all tasks critical to navigation – Radar, ECDIS, Conning Displays, Bridge Alarm Management, greatly improving situational awareness.

HENSOLDT UK builds on the legacy of its predecessor company Kelvin Hughes with decades of experience in radar, ECDIS and VDR systems in operation globally. With thousands of vessels operating Kelvin Hughes products, globally, high levels of confidence exist, for current and future customers, with regard to Manta NEO.

“Our initial target market are vessels where innovation is sought.  Use of the best solid-state radar available will provide the navigators with high definition situational awareness through data fusion”, explains Kevin Robertson. With Manta NEO, HENSOLDT UK will initially focus on the cruise and mega yacht sector, with great potential in merchant shipping where solid-sate radar had previously been considered to be an expensive “nice to have”.


HENSOLDT is a global pioneer of technology and innovation in the area of defense and security electronics. The company is a market leader in civilian and military sensor solutions, developing new products to counter evolving threats based on disruptive concepts in such fields as big data, robotics and cyber security. With a workforce of some 4,300 employees, HENSOLDT generates revenues of more than 1 billion euros per year.

NSSF Promotes Gun Safety in Texas with $1 Million Grant from Governor’s Office


NSSF The Firearms Industry Trade Association


NSSF’s Project ChildSafe® program will encourage locked storage of firearms when not in use

NEWTOWN, Conn. — The National Shooting Sports Foundation®is making available firearms safety education materials to Texas communities after being awarded a $1 million grant earlier this year from the Office of Governor Greg Abbott. The goal of the initiative is to help reduce firearms accidents, theft and misuse, including suicide.

Texas selected NSSF as the recipient of the grant because of the strong track record of NSSF’s Project ChildSafe program, which for two decades has provided genuine firearms safety education to communities in all 50 states and the U.S. territories. Project ChildSafe is a firearms safety program created by gun owners for gun owners. It has distributed more than 38 million free firearm safety kits that include a gun lock through partnerships with more than 15,000 law enforcement departments.

“We are very grateful to the state of Texas for this $1 million grant and for their confidence and trust in NSSF and the Project ChildSafe program to promote responsible firearms ownership,” said NSSF President Joe Bartozzi. “We’ll be reminding gun owners that there’s a safe storage option that fits their lifestyle — whether it’s a gun lock, lockbox or full-size gun safe — that will help keep guns out of the wrong hands.”

NSSF has been the recipient of many grants to support expansion of its award-winning Project ChildSafe program, including most recently a $2.4 million federal grant through the U.S. Department of Justice-Bureau of Justice Assistance.

NSSF will make its Project ChildSafe firearm safety kits, which contain a cable-style gun lock and safety brochure, available to communities through law enforcement agencies. The firearm safety kits can be ordered by law enforcement via the program’s website. In addition to the gun locks, partners will receive a poster reminding gun owners of the many gun safety resources at, including firearm safety videos featuring McGruff the Crime Dog for young children, a video on how parents can talk to their kids about gun safety, a firearms and suicide prevention brochure, a child safety pledge and an infographic illustrating various safe storage devices for different lifestyles and budgets to secure firearms when not in use. NSSF’s “Own It? Respect It. Secure It.®” campaign is a component of all Project ChildSafe initiatives.

“We are looking forward to working with Texas communities and emphasizing that securely storing firearms when not in use is the number one way to help prevent accidents, misuse and thefts,” said Bartozzi.

Safe storage of firearms works. Fatal firearms accidents have declined by 50 percent from 1997 to 2017, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, with unintentional firearm deaths accounting for less than 1 percent of fatal accidents from all causes.

About NSSF

The National Shooting Sports Foundation is the trade association for the firearms industry. Its mission is to promote, protect and preserve hunting and the shooting sports. Formed in 1961, NSSF has a membership of thousands of manufacturers, distributors, firearms retailers, shooting ranges, sportsmen’s organizations and publishers nationwide.

MKS Supply, Inc., Dayton, OH, November 2019 – New for 2020 are

Hi-Point’s “near visible” camo schemes.

Hi-Point’s new Moth Wing Mimicry pattern (shown above) works anywhere very effectively. Hi-Point’s lighter more subtle pattern called Kryptek Yeti (shown below). Both patterns are limited editions available for a limited time only in .45ACP and 10mm heading into early 2020. 

Camouflage that is tight in pattern and dark viewed close up will appear as a silhouette at any distance. The idea is to break up the shape of the object to be hidden at any distance with light and shadows.

When it comes to winter, white works best but if broken up with a pattern. this will work even better and remains incredibly effective in the summer world of shadows and shapes and can even at night by altering the recognizable profile.

Rugged reliable Hi-Points will shoot on a par or better than much more expensive carbines and will send the bullet just as fast as a carbine costing twice as much.


  • Barrel: 171/2 inches, threaded barrel (0.578x28TPI)
  • Calibers:.45ACP and 10mm (only with these limited patterns)
  • Sight: Iron with ghost ring
  • Overall length: 32 inches
  • Weight:7 pounds
  • Trigger: 6-pound single-stage
  • MSRP: .45ACP $415 and 10mm Automatic $449

Buckets of Federal’s Award-Winning Syntech Range Ammunition Now Available

ANOKA, Minnesota – November 6, 2019 – From the largest ammunition manufacturer of the world comes all-new Syntech Bulk Buckets boast 250 to 500 rounds packed in rugged plastic buckets that stack, store and transport easily. Shipments of this product have been delivered to dealers.

“Conventional ammunition causes metal-on-metal contact between the bullet and bore, which can shorten barrel life and rob accuracy. The polymer-encapsulated Syntech bullet prevents this, while eliminating copper and lead fouling,” explained Federal Handgun Ammunition Product Manager Chris Laack. “Combined with specialized clean-burning powders, your gun will stay cleaner, longer, so you can shoot more and shoot better. The exclusive Catalyst primer provides the cleanest most consistent ignition possible. That’s why it received the 2017 NRA Golden Bullseye Award. And now, we sell it by the bucket full.”

The one-of-a-kind TSJ projectile uses a polymer jacket to eliminate metal fouling and drastically reduce damaging barrel heat and friction. The bullet style also minimizes splash-back on steel targets. Its exclusive Catalyst primer provides hot, reliable ignition without the use of lead. There’s never been a better way to have an epic day at the range.


  • 250- to 500-round loose bulk packs
  • Rugged plastic buckets stack, store and transport easily

National Cyber League Guardia Civil Universidad de Alcalá 3

· Students from 15 universities are participating in the Inter-University Cybersecurity League, promoted by the Civil Guard and based on Indra’s cyber training solution

· The competition, which has a multi-disciplinary approach, seeks to train young talents to protect the country against cyber attacks

· The call has been a huge success and exceeded all expectations, demonstrating the interest aroused by cybersecurity among young people

cyber range 3.2Madrid, November 6, 2019.- Around 2,000 university students from 15 universities across Spain are competing in the Civil Guard’s Inter-University Cybersecurity League, based on Indra’s Cyber Range cybertraining solution. In it they demonstrate their ability to counter real cyber attacks and protect our country’s basic services and companies.

More than 100,000 cybercrimes were recorded in Spain in 2018, a figure double the one recorded only two years earlier. Mobilizing young talent to protect the digital economy, which will be the pillar of our development, is a critical task.

To do so, the Civil Guard has launched the largest competition held to date in Spain in terms of the number of universities and students involved.

Students from the Universities of Cáceres, Albacete, La Coruña, Huesca, Valencia, Murcia, Oviedo, Valladolid, Logroño, Alcalá de Henares, Polytechnic of Madrid and Carlos III have already competed with each other using the Indra solution. It’s now the turn of students from the Autonomous University of Madrid and the University of Granada.

The winning teams will meet up in the final, to be held at the Civil Guard’s University Center on 15 and 16 November in Aranjuez (Madrid).

This Cyber League is different from all those organized to date. The Civil Guard wanted the participants to face challenges set upon the basis of a multi-disciplinary perspective.

In addition to demonstrating their technical capabilities, the teams must apply their knowledge of law, in order to establish the responsibilities entailed by their actions in the technological field, as well as their knowledge of economics and business, so as to calculate the cost of their strategy, and communication, to manage any reputational crises.

The head of the Cybersecurity team at Indra explains that the Inter-University League is enjoying huge success: “In the initial competitions there were an average of fifty participants, but the figure has now doubled. For the events in Madrid, the students enrolled at the five universities where it will be held total more than 1,000”.

The solution that trains armies and police forces

The students compete in Indra’s Cyber Range to demonstrate their ethical hacking and forensic analysis skills. The challenges to be overcome include finding evidence concealed in a system, detecting the vulnerabilities of a critical system and moving laterally and jumping from one system to another. In the forensic field, they analyze disks and computer memories and collect evidence.

Indra’s Cyber Range is a platform that has already been used by the Joint Command of Spanish Cyber Defense, the Civil Guard, the National Police Force, police forces from all over Europe, as well as NATO personnel and cyber defense specialists in European and Latin American armies. It’s a cutting-edge system that meets the international security and confidentiality standards and provides a highly demanding level of training.

About Indra

Indra ( is one of the main global technology and consultancy companies and the technological partner for its customers’ key business operations around the world. It’s a major global supplier of proprietary solutions in specific segments of the Transportation and Defense markets and a leading company in digital transformation and information technology consultancy in Spain and Latin America by means of its Minsait subsidiary. Its business model is based on a comprehensive range of proprietary products, with an end-to-end approach that has high value and a significant innovative component. In 2018 Indra received income totaling 3.104 billion euros and had 43,000 employees, a local presence in 46 countries and business operations in more than 140 countries.

EAA’s MC312 Sport 12GA Shotgun

Up your 3-gun competition game with EAA’s MC312 Sport 12GA shotgun, loaded with winning features and not heavy on price.

Cocoa, Fla. (November 2019)European American Armory Corporation (EAA Corp.), importers of select quality and affordable handguns, rifles, and shotguns, announce the MC312 Sport 12GA shotgun in time for 2020 3-gun competition season. The action-packed sport of 3-gun has competitors engaging in targets from different distances and using three guns: rifle, pistol, and shotgun. The sport requires speed from the competitor and accuracy from the firearm. Firearms can take a beating during competition.

EAA’s MC312 Sport 12GA shotgun was designed to meet all the requirements for 3-Gun competition and give the competitor an extra edge with out-of-the-box performance that can stand up to any environmental abuse, all without a hefty price tag.

Made by Girsan under the direction of EAA, the MC312 Sport standard features include an enhanced loading port for quad loading, essential to save time on the field, and a red mag tube follower to allow for a visual on the empty chamber status. The fully-machined receiver features a low-profile machined Picatinny rail with a factory wide-view red dot optic. The low-profile rail keeps the shooters’ head on the gun and both eyes on the optic, avoiding what is commonly called “turkey neck” when the shooter raises his/her head looking for the target. That means, in competition, faster target acquisition, and increased accuracy.

All the MC312 controls are improved for ease of access, especially during a competition. A raised, vent rib with a mid-bead and fiber front sight on the barrel allows for a faster swing to access timed targets.

Other features on the MC312 inertia action shotgun include a 24” barrel and five choke tubes, a rubber butt pad and rotating bolt and common mag tube cap threads for optional upgrades.

EAA’s MC312 12GA shotgun platform proves itself time and time again to be one tough shotgun platform for sport shooting, hunting, and home defense. The MC312 Sport 12GA Shotgun will be available in January 2020 and backed by EAA’s limited lifetime warranty (optics warranty – one year).

MC312 Sport Shotgun Specifications:

  • Caliber: 12 GA (3” or 2 ¾”)
  • Action: Inertia-action
  • Barrel Length: 24”
  • Choke: Five screw-in chokes
  • Overall Length: 46”
  • Length of Pull: 14.25”
  • SRP: $ 599.00

Understanding the difference between SDR and HDR

    There’s been a lot of excitement around the recent proliferation of software-defined radios. For those in the industry more familiar with traditional radios, this shift to SDR might be a big change, while for others it might be a welcome sign.

    It’s important to understand the difference between SDR and traditional or hardware-defined radios. This will provide the knowledge necessary for informed decision-making over whether your operation will benefit more from SDR or HDR.

    SDR versus HDR

    We most likely know all about the mechanical components used in traditional or HDR. Antennas, dials and knobs, receivers, and the like, that transmit and receive signals via radio waves. They’ve been around for decades, and they work just fine for many applications. However, in most instances, once these components leave the assembly line, you cannot modify them. What you buy is what you get.

    SDR, on the other hand, uses software modules and processors operating on a hardware platform to digitally recreate radio signal transmissions and receptions. This software may run functions that might include modulation and demodulation, frequency hopping and selection, or bandwidth changes, among a host of others depending on its specifications. Developers, service providers, and end-users can then configure and reconfigure the software to change the radio’s performance and capabilities so that it meets their specific needs.

    So which is better?

    There’s really no right or wrong answer to this question. Both SDR and HDR have their own benefits.

    For instance, due to the longevity and maturation of HDR, many people feel comfortable using this particular type of technology. However, the mechanical and physical components, in addition to any upgrades and replacements, cost money. Compounded by the size of some operations, any upgrades and replacements can be quite costly. There’s also a lack of flexibility in the functionality of HDR.

    Whereas, SDR provides that flexibility inherently missing from HDR technology. The ease of modifications and reconfigurations on the digital software makes updates and procedural repositioning a breeze.

    Barrett Communications’ new PRC-4090 product range has features that are very similar to mobile phones.

    Then again, those users more accustomed to traditional radios might find digital radio jarring and cumbersome. But new SDR products continue to hit the market that can alleviate this very problem. The newly launched PRC-4090, for instance, has an icon-based interface that functions very similarly to a mobile phone, which makes implementation much easier for those reluctant to move away from a traditional radio.

    For more information on what Barrett Communications’ equipment is best for your needs, get in touch with our team.

    One more backpack is never too many, especially when you’re talking about CAMELBAK’s BFM™ 100OZ MIL SPEC CRUX

    CAMELBAK’s BFM™ 100OZ MIL SPEC CRUX is one of the best packs I’ve had the opportunity to review in quite some time. It’s a military grade load bearing system that is innovative, flexible and durable. At an M.S.R.P. of $300, plus $40 to $50 for the reservoir, it’s not inexpensive, but you’ll be getting something that will serve your needs for years to come. Everything on this pack is top of the line, period end of sentence.

    Kopfjäger Ambush: Bringing Stability to your Deer Blind


    clip_image004(MANSFIELD, TEXAS) – Eliminate fatigue and beat buck fever: Kopfjäger’s obsessively engineered Ambush Rest Kit is designed to reduce fatigue, improve safety and fill tags, providing rock-solid support for your favorite rifle in your deer stand.

    The Kopfjäger Ambush Support Assembly (KJ85005) is a patent-pending stabilizing arm designed to mount effortlessly to the interior wall of your box blind. Used in conjunction with Kopfjäger’s Reaper Grip and a bipod (sold separately), the Ambush’s innovative design frees up valuable space in your deer blind, eliminating the need for a tripod or shooting stick. The Ambush combined with a Reaper Grip gives shooters of all ages and capabilities the confidence they need to make a precise shot. Though the Ambush is a useful tool for all hunters, it is especially practical for young, elderly and disabled hunters, due to its load-bearing qualities and ease-of-use.

    clip_image006The Ambush Shooting Rest Kit (KJ85005K) comes complete with a bipod and Reaper Grip Rest. The Reaper’s curved grip anchors your rifle to the rest and is angled to secure both tapered and straight stocks.
