BAE Systems, Anjani team to bring armor solutions to India

  • 18-Feb-2010 04:21 EST

BAE Systems and Anjani Technoplast Ltd. formed a relationship to bring survivability products and personnel protection materials to India. As part of the relationship, Anjani will manufacture protective equipment using Tensylon—a polyethylene ballistic material exclusively developed by BAE Systems to make survivability products, such as body armor and vehicle armor, even lighter and stronger. Initially, the relationship will focus on integrating Tensylon ballistic fiber and tape into various products for Indian defense and security forces. BAE Systems is also evaluating manufacturing other survivability systems and accessories in India, including the Modular Lightweight Load-Carrying Equipment System, which is said to improve mission efficiency by allowing for customization in the field without compromising mobility or readiness.
