MKU Showcased Future Generation Personal Armour at India International Security Expo 2016
NEW DELHI. MKU, a leading manufacturer of armour solutions and night vision devices, showcased future generation personal armour solutions for defence and security personnel at 19th India International Security Expo held September 19-21 at Pragati Maidan, New Delhi.
In the backdrop of increasing attacks on security personnel, it is imperative that our soldiers are provided with the best equipment to safeguard their lives as they engage in various theatres against anti-national elements.
Weight carried by a soldier is of critical importance as it impacts and hinders his performance and survivability capabilities in the theatre of operation. Modern soldiers carry equipment weighing approx. 36-40 Kg on them including body armour, ammo, batteries, water, rations and new
generation devices needed to fight and survive and of these, body armour is probably the single heaviest item.
The technologists and designers at MKU have combined the capabilities of new ultra- light weight 6th generation Polyshield armour with the versatile and extremely comfortable quick release Instavest. The Instavest is Patent product of MKU.
MKU also exhibited its Mukut advanced combat helmets at which are made using the revolutionary RHT ( Reduced Helmet Trauma) Technology and have been tested and certified by HP White Laboratories, USA to offer a BABT (Behind Armour Blunt Trauma) of less than 10 mm which is over 40 per cent lower than conventional helmets.
