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.

NATO and IRAQ 2017

NATO recently delivered 1000 sets of firing cable which were supplied on the Australian manufactured Ruslyn Pack Reel.
Ruslyn Holdings is proud to be part of this supply.

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)

High Tech / Small / Military Grade Anchor Rope Cord Reel – Ideal for Kayaks!

Kayak Anchor Reel March 2012. The following article has been written in the Austin Bass Fishing on-line forum in the USA:

High Tech / Small / Military Grade Anchor Rope Cord Reel – Ideal for Kayaks!
I’ve finally found the ultimate anchor rope management cord wheel. Anchor rope management is a big problem for me and I have a Ranger Z19 bass boat. I’ve started fishing more open water, and anchor frequently when I find a hump or other structure that is holding fish. I hate having anchor rope all over the front deck, particularly when I am fishing or burning across the water at high speeds. It’s quite dangerous and a big hassle!
I’ve scoured the Internet looking for a small reel that is durable, and just haven’t been able to find anything. About six months ago, I found this company in Australia called Ruslyn Holdings that was creating a small cord wheel for military combat engineers, search
and rescue, special operations, etc.
This particular reel called the Ruslyn Pack Reel just came out of beta, and is now patented and being distributed in cases of 25 reels
to military organizations. I begged the Ruslyn CEO to sell me one reel, but he wouldn’t do it. But I kept begging him…
Finally he agreed to sell me 3 reels, which I received a few days ago. These things are awesome!
