Danish MoD awards $23.5 million helmet contract
The Danish Defence Acquisition and Logistics Organisation (DALO) has awarded Galvion a $23.5 million contract to procure helmets for the national armed forces.
The company announced the seven-year agreement on 30 July. Under the deal, Galvion will deliver helmets and spare parts from Q4 2020.
The manufacturer will hand over the Batlskin Caiman Special Forces helmet system and the newly launched PDxT helmet, which introduces a new geometry to balance space, comfort and impact performance together with a low-profile shell.
Both models can be configured to meet a variety of impact standards and mission requirements.
This is the second time DALO has chosen Galvion as a supplier. In 2012, the business (under its former corporate name Revision Military) won a contract to deliver helmets and spare parts to Denmark.
Galvion’s protective head systems and soldier power management systems also equip defence forces from the US, Canada, UK, Germany, the Netherlands, Norway, Poland, UAE, Israel, Australia, New Zealand and Indonesia.
