NATO March 2017

NATO delivered and demonstrated 160 sets of counter-IED equipment to Iraq’s Ministry of Interior on Sunday (26 March 2017). Financed by NATO’s Defence Capacity Building Trust Fund, the equipment is an important contribution to Iraq’s efforts to fight terrorism and protect civilians. Speaking at a meeting of NATO Foreign Ministers on Friday (31 March), Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg welcomed the delivery, saying “one of our best tools in the fight against terrorism is training local forces… this equipment will help save lives.”
This kit includes 2 Ruslyn Pack Reels NSN 8130/661596431

At Iraq’s request, NATO agreed in July 2015 to provide defence capacity building support in a number of areas, including countering improvised explosive devices, explosive ordnance disposal and demining, security sector reform, military medicine and civil military planning.

In 2016, NATO trained over 350 Iraqi officers in Jordan, and at the Warsaw Summit in July 2016, Allies agreed to expand this training into Iraq itself. Since January 2017, NATO advisers have been working in the country, overseeing training activities and working with the Iraqi authorities to reform their security institutions. NATO’s presence in Iraq includes a core team and mobile training teams.

The Ruslyn Cordwheel is the absolute best way to store, deploy, and pick up rope, cable, wire, det cord, shock tube and small-diameter hose. The design is simple, but brilliant. Reeling in couldn’t be easier. Since receiving this reel for testing, I have browsed stores for similar products to compare it to. There are many look-a-likes on the market, but they feel cheap and fragile in my hands when compared to the Ruslyn. The Ruslyn has survived drops from waist height onto concrete while loaded with 50 feet of air hose. The design allows for easy stacking for organized storage of multiple reels. After testing this reel, I wanted to purchase one for every cord, hose, rope and linear object on our truck. The only negative thing I have to say about this product is the sticker shock when I shopped for more. The price is steep, but I guess you get what you pay for!

The Ruslyn Cordwheel is a versatile reel and can be used for numerous applications. I especially feel the option of stacking several wheels is handy, even though I only had one. I could see this feature being beneficial by taking up a smaller footprint. Putting electrical cord is nice even though it recommends unwinding it all. I see why this is important with electrical cord. The electrical cord winds fairly easily and keeps it from getting tangled. The wheel could be used for phone line for a negotiator phone for and extended reach as most phones have their own wheel/roller. If my department had rolls of rope in each patrol car, this would be beneficial to keep the rope neat and tidy while in the trunk of a cruiser for rescues. I actually might let the Lake Patrol Officer use it on the boat in the summer. The center where you grab and reel the wheel is very easy to use and a great design. It makes quick work of winding. I believe this might be of use for SWAT teams, along with the smaller version. Can’t wait to see if it is beneficial for the SWAT or Lake Patrol. I believe this would work well for crime scene tape and is definitely a better option than the boxes the tape comes in.

DMO – MAINTENANCE NEWS – 12/2012

No More Tangles

An article written in Maintenance News by Land Systems Division, Land Engineering Agency, Defence Materiel Agency (DMO) December 2012

Ruslyn NATO Pack ReelRuslyn NATO Pack ReelFor a number of years combat personnel have been
struggling with organising hook and line, cords
and cables. Soldiers had been using hand held fishing reels, tent pegs and pieces of wood. Ruslyn Holdings have been supplying the Cordwheel, NIN 66-153-3558 (see Figure 1) to the Australian Defence Force since 2006 and although suitable for its intended purpose, it is too large to be carried by the dismounted soldier. In identifying the requirement for a person pack reel, Defence now has a rugged and lightweight mini reel (see Figure 2) that overcomes those combat problems with carrying cords and cables. Primarily designed to meet the requirements of combat engineers, EOD, RASigs and clearance divers, the pack reel is chemical, impact and fire resistant, has no metallic components, is easy to operate, (even when wearing gloves) and can be used in all climatic/environmental conditions. During the initial trials this year, users were very exited with the many applications of the Ruslyn Pack Reel and with this positive responce Trunk Systems  Batteries and Chargers (TSBC) has now introduced into service the Ruslyn Pack Reel, NIN 66-159-6431. The Ruslyn Pack Reel is suitable for carrying:

  • DON-10 (WD-1A/TT)150 m
  • ROPE (10 mm)14 m
  • Hook & Line (3.5 mm)112 m
  • Detonator Cord 38 m

Specifications

  •  Size: 230 mm (diameter) x 62 mm (width)
  • Weight: 375 gm (empty)
