Revision Celebrates Nerv Centr Power Management Solution Adoption with Key U.S. Customers
Revision Military—a world leader in integrated, soldier-worn power management solutions—has successfully supplied numerous Nerv Centr® power management systems to key customers in the U.S. Marine Corps and Air National Guard Joint Terminal Attack Controllers (JTAC).
“Revision’s Power division is a prime example of our unyielding commitment to meeting troop needs head on,” said Jonathan Blanshay, CEO, Revision. “If we see any opportunity to leverage our capabilities to improve warfighter equipment, in any capacity, we are going to pursue it relentlessly. The development of the Nerv Centr family of products—solutions designed to suit the real-world needs of troops on the ground, so they can count on longer-lasting energy reserves on extended and remote missions—fully embodies this pursuit. Revision’s power capabilities have grown significantly since we first staked out this territory in 2014, and we are poised to expand further with the recent acquisition of Protonex. The recent traction of the Nerv Centr line and this exciting partnership with the Air National Guard is a testament to our tenacious mindset, and reinforces all the work we’ve put in to get to where we are today.”

Each kit includes a Nerv Centr SharePack® Power Management System, a Nerv Centr SoloPack™ Battery, an Enhanced Charger, and select cables.
Revision was selected by the Air National Guard (ANG) to supply Nerv Centr power management solutions for their Battlefield Airman Kits, for use by Joint Terminal Attack Controllers (JTAC). Revision has delivered 652 kits, each of which includes a Nerv Centr SharePack® Power Management System, a Nerv Centr SoloPack™ Battery, an Enhanced Charger, and select cables.
This order by the Air National Guard builds on several recent successes for Revision’s Nerv Centr family of power management products. Especially noteworthy is Revision’s work with the U.S. Marine Corps to supply the energy needs for their Target Handoff System—a constellation of interconnected devices that provide Scout Observers, Joint Fires Observers, and JTACs with the ability to self-locate, acquire targets, and refine and relay coordinate data for target engagement. Revision’s SoloPack Batteries and Nerv Centr Chargers provide centralized power that has greatly exceeded expectations—powering the THS for upward of 20 hours, compared to the eight-hour threshold set by the program.
Collaboration with the Air National Guard for the Battlefield Airman Kits began two years ago, in response to JTAC instructors’ request for a higher-capacity alternative power solution with lower weight and less bulk. Revision worked closely with this group to understand their requirements, their equipment, and the integration specifications for their vest load outs. After trials with the Nerv Centr products, the ANG committed to outfitting all of their JTAC instructors across 15 squadrons in the U.S. Successful delivery of this order also included SharePack firmware improvements and the development of a new PRC 117G radio adapter. During this collaboration, the ANG also aided in the development of the user interface of the Nerv Centr mobile app—Revision's first mobile application (available now in the Google Play store), designed to provide an intuitive interface for soldier-worn power system management, enhancing connectivity, device monitoring, and control over power reserves.
Revision develops and delivers purpose-built protective soldier equipment for military use worldwide. The company, which began with eyewear, has expanded to face, head, and torso protection, as well as energy storage and power management products.
