STOCKHOLM, Oct. 2, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- INVISIO has, in partnership with Thales in Belgium, received an order for a communication and hearing protection system from the Belgian Defense. The order value for INVISIO is about SEK 30 million and deliveries are planned for the fourth quarter of 2019 and mid-2020. INVISIO expects a first follow-up order shortly of SEK 20 million and considers that the long-term potential for further orders from the new customer is considerable.
The soldier radio program is one of the Belgian Army's largest military modernization programs for communication and hearing protection. The program aims to reduce hearing loss and improve users' communication capacities in critical environments.
The order for a communication and hearing protection system has been received in partnership with Thales in Belgium, the prime contractor for this program.
"It is gratifying that we have won yet another procurement contract, giving us the opportunity to be a supplier to the Belgian Defense. The order is one of several indications that the defense and security industry is increasing its focus on the need for seamless communication and hearing protection in critical environments," says Carsten Aagesen SVP Global Sales & Marketing at INVISIO.
INVISIO's communication systems are based on simplicity, modularity and flexibility to meet communication needs of users in mission-critical environments, both on land and when mounted.
For more than a decade, INVISIO has been a market leader and its various communication solutions have become the given choice for modernization programs in defense and security throughout the world. All INVISIO systems are developed and tested in close collaboration with some of the world's most demanding users with the aim of protecting them and improving their capacity in important missions.
Plug-and-play-integration between control units, intercom, headsets and cables is the key to the versatility of the INVISIO system, since it enables connection of new INVISIO equipment without configuration. All INVISIO systems are based on the INVISIO IntelliCable™ system, a unique patented technology for identification of units that makes all current and future INVISIO units compatible.
