Invisio has received a follow-up order from the Belgian Army to supply communication and hearing protection systems.

The company won the order in partnership with Thales Belgium, which is the main contractor for the programme.

The order is valued at around Skr25m ($2.57m). Invisio expects to make deliveries in the fourth quarter of this year and the first half of next year.

Invisio Communications CEO Lars Højgård Hansen said: “Winning the Belgian Army’s contract in October is significant for Invisio in that it is one of several indications that the defence and security industry is starting to increase its focus on the need for communication and hearing protection in critical environments.

“This expected follow-up order means that the partnership is developing according to plan.”

The company received the contract last month to provide communication and hearing protection solutions for the Belgian Army.

The equipment will help protect the hearing capability of soldiers and improve communication capacity in critical environments.

Belgium is procuring the systems under the soldier radio programme, which aims to modernise the army’s communication and hearing protection equipment.

Last month, the US Department of Defense (DoD) awarded a contract to Invisio to provide communication and hearing protection systems to ensure improved communication capabilities in noisy environments.

The five-year indefinite-delivery, indefinite-quantity contract has a potential value of up to Skr290m ($29.52m).

Invisio’s hearing protection systems include advanced headsets and control units.
