For Manufacturing of Bullet-Proof Jackets, DRDO Hands Over Tech to Defence


The Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) has handed over its technology to a defence firm to manufacture bullet-proof jackets for the armed forces.

The government has decided to procure 1.86 lakh bullet- proof jackets for the armed forces and majority of them will be manufactured by Kanpur-based private firm MKU Ltd which was given the DRDO-developed technology.

The DRDO and MKU Ltd also exchanged licence agreement and other related documents at an event today, a defence ministry official said.

The MKU will produce bullet-proof jackets which will be lighter in weight than those being used by the armed forces currently.
