INVISIO announced that the initial order from the UK Ministry of Defence (MOD) worth about SEK 90 million was extended by an additional SEK 15 million order, which means that the contract value now amounts to approximately SEK 105 million. Deliveries will begin in the second quarter of 2017.
The contract with the British Ministry of Defence was announced on March 9, 2017, and comprises hearing protection and communication ancillaries for specialist land, maritime and air applications. The contract is for four years with options for a fifth year and a complete mid-life enhancement at two and a half years.
The contract follows previous MOD contract awards for hearing protection, THPS, announced in 2015.
The order was through INVISIO’s UK based partner Marlborough Communications Ltd (MCL).
