The ACVCH program is a USMC developmental effort. The USMC initiated the program an january 1992. Extensive concept evaluations were conducted on early prototypes developed and built by the USA Natick RD&E center. The evaluations took place at Aberdeen proving ground, Ft.

The ACVCH features ballistic protection equivalent to that of the PASGT helmet, a removable faceguard, "talk thru" communications capability, and an improved suspension system which enhances overall system comfort.
