Custom and Integrated Body Armour

Modern-day warfare conditions and operation strategies have evolved. They incorporate new tactics which require additional situational awareness. A modern soldier is equipped with an integrated set of high technology equipment and uniforms. Their communication systems are linked to a variety of real-time and archived battlefield information resources.

Besides the technology, equipment and uniforms, field conditions have also evolved over the years for modern soldiers. MKU offers custom design and development of body armour as per the requirements of its customer.

Body armour customization encompasses:

  • Design customisation
  • Protection and threat levels
  • Device integration

Ballistic Resistance of Body Armor NIJ Standard 0101.06 establishes minimum performance requirements and test methods for the ballistic resistance of individual body armor designed to protect the fuselage against gunfire and MKU provides NIJ 0101.06 certification by the National Institute of Justice (NIJ), the USA for a range of Advanced Soft Armor and Hard Armor panel configurations. These panels exhibit superior durability, safety and reliability even after prolonged use and are available with a prolonged warranty.

Ergonomics and Agility

MKU’s advanced body armours are comfortable and easy to wear over a long period of time. It allows freedom of movement, agility and awareness to the soldier and provides optimum protection in extreme conditions and climates. It also integrates seamlessly with the mission-critical equipment required of a modern soldier.

Torso Protection

Body armour is one of the most important protection gears of a soldier. Body Armour is the outermost piece of the protective shield a soldier wears over his torso to avoid lethal injuries to the crucial parts of the body. Today’s combat scenarios demand more agile and flexible armour and that’s why MKU’s body armour is made of high-performance materials in heterogeneous combinations. It broadly comprises an outer carrier, soft armour and hard armour to provide protection against various threats, including handgun ammunition, rifle ammunition, fragments, stab, etc. additionally, critical areas like the groin, neck, shoulders and sides can also be protected with additional ballistic attachments to regular body armour.

Apt for emergency conditions, MKU’s INSTAVEST’s swift and instant body armour series release action helps soldiers in extreme combat and life-threatening situations where immediate doffing of the body armour becomes imperative in order to save one life:

  • wading/swimming in water
  • doffing armour in firing prone position
  • treating critically wounded soldiers
  • narrow ingress & egress points

The specially developed Quick Release System of Instavest immediately divests the vest off the soldier’s body with a single action and complements body reflex.
