  • Patent number: 8667617
    Abstract: An enhanced protective helmet includes in one embodiment an outer shell and a molded lining disposed within the outer shell and contoured to surround a human head. The helmet further includes an elongated antenna having a proximal end and a free end, the antenna being supported by the molded lining. The helmet includes a connection point which can be mounted to the molded lining or otherwise extend away from the proximal end of the antenna, the connection point communicatively connected to the proximal end of the antenna. The connection point receives a connection from a mobile communication device, thereby linking the mobile communication device and the antenna. The antenna is located at helmet location that is along one side of the helmet above a left or right ear of the user for optimizing antenna performance.

  • Publication number: 20120148080
    Abstract: Device for mounting a communication headset to helmets of the type having a first strap extending in front of an ear of a user, a second strap extending behind the ear, and a chin strap connectable to the first and second straps, for instance, sports helmets. The device includes a mounting panel having a seat that includes electrical contacts connected to a printed circuit board and a guide. A rear of the mounting panel spans a distance that overlaps the first second straps. A second surface also spans the distance that overlaps the first and second straps and is movable relative to the mounting panel. A clamp resiliently biases the second surface into contact with the rear surface of the mounting panel but is urgable so as to move the second surface away from the rear surface allowing the device to be fastened to or removed from the helmet.
