The official car of the President of the United States is aptly nicknamed – The beast. The US President’s armoured car features 8-inch thick doors and 5-inch thick bullet resistant glass that ensures ballistic protection even against rocket-propelled grenades. The weight of the car nearly approaches ten tons, due to which its top speed is limited to about 100 km/h. Though this is a small compromise to protect a country’s head of state, the same cannot to be applied to armouring vehicles for civilian purposes.
From Afghanistan to Cambodia, and from Angola to Colombia, landmines pose a great threat to civilian lives even years after the war is over. It is surprising to know to know that Egypt is still struggling to clear out the landmines that date back to the North African campaigns of World War II.

Today, helicopters play an irreplaceable role for any military and law enforcement agencies in modern crisis management. However, the threat landscape they operate in exposes them as an easy target of armed fire by militants and enemy forces. This has necessitated the need to make helicopters more ballistically tolerant by incorporating armour panels. Though, incorporating any type armour panels comes at a cost of weight penalty which impacts the payload carrying capability & endurance of the helicopter.
MKU has pioneered in developing a practical solutions for helicopter armouring with their modular retro-fit armour solution, called as Modular Schutz Technik (MoST). This technique when coupled with MKU’s Generation 6 Polyshield V6 armouring solution based armour panels, results in 40% lighter and thinner armour panels compared to standard solutions. Employing MoST design approach in helicopter armouring, the following benefits can be achieved when compared to standard solutions:

To minimize the weight and maximize the possibilities, MKU provides the perfect solution for aircraft/helicopter armouring because we understand the value of safeguarding highly trained aircrews and guaranteeing mission accomplishment.
Benefits of an ultra-lightweight body armour
Be it a soldier heading for a combat zone or an officer from a law enforcement agency responding to an emergency call, they never give a second thought for their own safety when there is a call of duty. These soldiers perpetually face fatal threats, and returning home is always a looming question for them.
Today, the combat helmets have transformed from steel pot helmetsused in World War II, to helmets made of light-weight composite materials that offer enhanced ballistic protection. They have been relatively successful in reducing the head injuries and fatalities due to bullets and fragments. However, they have not been effective in preventing impact related head trauma1.
