    This SDS Warrior ACH was worn by a contractor who worked for the CACI intentional. He was a Unattended Ground Sensor (UGS) equipment installer/trainer. Basically, once the UGS detects activities, it sends footages via satellite. More information can be found here: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Unattended_ground_sensor

    His team would be assigned to US. Military units to install the equipment and then train troops on how to use them.

    This ACH was worn on his six deployments to Afghanistan (three month deployment), from 2011 to 2014.

    Nice well used helmet there, thanks for posting Sir. Lots of former "Cool Guys" contracting with CACI.
