Allen-Vanguard to deliver counter-IED ensemble to Canada
Allen-Vanguard announced today that it has been awarded a contract to provide the Canadian Forces with a fully integrated solution for personal protection against explosives, including Improvised Explosive Devices, and chemical/biological agents.
The Company will be delivering an ensemble that establishes a new level of operational capability against current and emerging threats by integrating best-in-class protection and performance, including: the Med-Eng bomb suit; a chemical protection undergarment; sophisticated respiratory protection; and, multi-faceted personal cooling to mitigate heat stress before, during and after missions.
Company CEO, Dennis Morris commented, "This contract is particularly significant because it follows extensive independent testing that required the ensemble to be proven against very demanding criteria as a complete system, rather than a collection of individual components." He continued, "We are extremely pleased to once again earn the confidence of the Canadian Forces by providing their personnel with a mission-focused solution that will serve them now and well into the future."
