MKU to Showcase 6th Generation Body Armour at India International Security Expo

NEW DELHI – Security systems have become an integral part of virtually every fact of life. India's homeland security (HS) spend is now larger than the overall defence budget of many countries. Understandably this sector is attracting just as much attention from India's domestic industry as the bigger defence sector itself. The budgetary allocation for the Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) for the year 2013-14 was just under 11 billion dollars and is expected to near the 20 billion dollar mark by 2017-18.

MKU Pvt. Ltd., a leading manufacturer of ballistic protection solutions for personnel and platforms, has introduced the new 6th generation ballistic protection technology Ammoflex - 6 and Polyshield - 6 that help to reduce the weight and thickness of personal body armour by 40%. This reduction not only increases agility and speed of the soldiers but also greatly reduces stress and enhances endurance.

A personal ballistic vest manufactured using 6th generation Ammoflex - 6 technology, which conforms to the stringent norms as per NIJ 0101.06 Level II, weighs 1.5 Kg, and Level 3 of VPAM BSW 2006 weighs only 1.3 kg. An armour insert for rifle protection made by using 6th generation Polyshield - 6 technology weighs less than 850g. These 6th generation protection solutions will be showcased by MKU in the 17th edition of the India International Security Expo. MKU is displaying its products under the aegis of 'Make in India' stall and will highlight its patented and indigenously developed products.
