MCL to supply hearing protection to UK MoD

24th March 2017 - 09:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Cohort company Marlborough Communications (MCL) has received a contract from the UK Ministry of Defence (MoD) to supply and support hearing protection systems and communication ancillaries for specialist land, maritime and air applications, the company announced on 22 March.

The four-year contract has an initial order value of £9.9 million, and includes options for a one-year extension and a complete mid-life enhancement of the capability.

The contract follows previous MoD contract awards for hearing protection awarded in 2015 - an in-ear hearing protection system used with radio communications sytems that offers prevention of hearing damage and improved situational awareness for the user.

Andy Thomis, chief executive of Cohort, said: 'This is another great success for MCL, and its partner INVISIO, in the area of hearing protection. We are delighted to be providing a system that has such a significant impact on both operational effectiveness and the long term health of our armed forces personnel. This and other recent contract awards enhance the visibility of future group revenue.'
