MKU : Poised for the future
MKU exhibited latest solutions for Indian Army, Navy, Coast Guard and other services for upcoming requirements. The company is equipped to deliver solutions for up-coming RFIs in electro-optics, arms, ammunition, rifles and protection, having worked continuously in adding a wide range of force multiplier solutions that will not only enhance the night fighting capabilities and lethality but also provide a wider shield of protection for soldiers and platforms.
“Looking at the opportunities of more than INR 12,000 crore in the defence and homeland security domain, MKU remains positive towards the Indian market. MKU has signed an MoU with the UP Government for an investment of INR 1,000 crore in the newly announced Uttar Pradesh Defence Corridor by Prime Minister Modi in February, 2018. Located in the heart of the corridor, MKU is looking at several opportunities from MoD and MHA based on expected RFIs.”
In addition to the protection solutions for body and platforms, MKU also launched its newly developed IDDM range of electro optic systems at DefExpo 2018, which include various Thermal Imaging Devices, Night Vision Devices, Laser Range Finder and Day EO Devices.
‘ Make- in- India’ raised much interest amongst international defence manufacturers. Leading foreign OEMs are in the process of forming alliances with MKU to offer vast array of products which include electro-optics, rifles and remote controlled weapon systems, to name a few.
Keeping in mind the special requirements of the Indian Forces for upcoming vehicle programmes, MKU also showcased blast protection solutions along with special materials to defend land systems from RPGs. Also on display were the MoST ( Modular Schutz Technik) range of light weight armour for airborne platforms.
