The internal security concern in the country is augmenting daily, and is posing new challenges to the forces and the industry across various sectors, who are desperately seeking solutions to get some respite. MKU, a leading manufacturer of armour solutions for personnel and land-air-sea platforms is participating in the 7th Vibrant Gujarat Summit to showcase its vast range of solutions developed using leading edge technology developed indigenously after extensive R&D by MKU’s team of experts and engineers.
MKU has been engaged in Gujarat with both the government and industry to provide better life protection solutions. In the past, MKU has supplied armour solutions to the Police and industry establishments in Gujarat. Besides, the company has also provided the armor solutions for the patrol boats operated by the coast guard and marine police to guard the vulnerable coastline. The company is currently executing an order for concealable bullet proof jackets for the Gujarat police force.
Gujarat is also home to the renowned high quality FSL laboratory in Gandhinagar, where MKU extensively tests its products for certification.
MKU has always been at the forefront of technology and has been striving to develop newer, lighter and more flexible ballistic protection solutions for the modern solder. The technical team working at MKU in Germany and India has developed Ammoflex-6 and Polyshield-6 technologies after rigorous R&D and trials. These solutions are 40% lighter and thinner and much more flexible than standard solutions. According to Mr. Neeraj Gupta, Managing Director, “this reduction in weight and bulk will be a boon to the soldier as he would be better equipped to carry additional ammunition, batteries, rations or mission critical gear without increasing burden or related stress.”
Body armour made using Ammoflex-6 and Polyshield-6 offers excellent multi-hit protection at lowest possible weights. These conform to the stringent NIJ 0101.06 and VPAM standards and provide the soldier with unrestricted movement, flexibility and comfort. Such solutions are ideal for Special Forces which need to carry out quick and fast missions in unforeseen and often difficult scenarios. Over the years MKU has introduced several pioneering products which employ leading edge technology. These include “Instavest,” a quick release body armour and “Boltfree technology” for helmet.
MKU was setup in 1985 and till date has provided protection to over 1.5 million soldiers and 1500 platforms. It has, in its repertoire, 1000+ solutions covering more than 100 threats. Its products are used and trusted by 230 forces in over 100 countries including the UN and NATO. Its facilities are certified according to AS9100C.
