The company’s advanced materials solve a range of protection challenges for all vehicle platforms and protect the lives of their users.” Louis Huijzen, Managing Director of TSS adds to that: “In close collaboration with SkyDex and our clients, we have been able to gain valuable insights into the threats in the field and how they can concretely be reduced to acceptable levels. We are very happy to be able to share these insights with the audience at IAV.”
