INVISIO Receives Additional Order from the UK Ministry of Defence Worth About SEK 15 Million

INVISIO announced today 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).

  1. Bit more detail:

    And the purchased system:

    Electronic ear pro for everyone going in harms way it seems, which is pretty sweet. I’ve not looked at our stats, but given the hearing damage/loss rate amongst US vets I’m sure we have similar issues. Met many a bloke who always has to listen to you with a particular ear, seen blokes med discharged for hearing, more who probably manage to slip through the hearing tests somehow.

    I’m always super sceptical when it seems like something good might actually happen, but presuming the system is sufficiently built it certainly look like a good piece of news indeed.
