AN/PSQ-20 mount

15 02 2017

A new element since 2009 is appear on the soldier helmet. A new kind of NVG  mount for a new NVG. The PSQ-20 is a night vision goggles with combine night vision and thermal vision, in the same size of the pvs-14. But to be used it must be mounted in a new rhino arm. The PSQ-20 mount is composed of a mount, a arm and a battery pack.

The mount is in 2 parts, the front where you can fix the arm and back where the LPBP is connected to powered the NVG (both are link by a wire which passed inside the helmet shell)

The font look like the PGAST mount with a one hole screw, and the LPBP mount is fixed with 2 screws of the chin strap.

The arm clamp has pin for the NVG power (on the back arm too) to be connected to the mount. The LPBP (Low Profil Battery Pack) as pin too for the background mount.

I Haven’t new pics right now, so I ‘ll make something with old archives which are always usefull.

Let me introduce some communication devices used by the US FORCES. There are speakers/Handmic which are connected directly to the the radio.

The most seen on the field is the famous THALES speaker.

A 6 pins plug connected on the PRC-148 or PRC-152. Could be used with a earpieces which cut the speaker sound for a low profile use. Mic on the front and a PTT on the right side.

his older brother is the Sonetronics H-250 field phone. I’ll post later an improved version with a volume button and earpiece plug, the H-250B handset.

As a standard home phone, a speaker on top, and a mic down, press the PTT to talk and release when it’s finish. As the THALES handset a 5 pins pug is connected to the radio.

In the same family, the GEEK cousin, the HRCRD (Handheld Remote Control Radio Device) Handset C-12493/U, is a radio speaker handset with a control dashboard. Which is used to control the radio by the operator without removing the pack to get access to the front panel.
