MKU Pvt.

The exhibition, being organized in partnership with the Tanzanian People's Defence Force, also includes MCSA East Africa and presents an opportunity for MKU to showcase its cutting edge technologies to military officials, government stakeholders, security forces and industry.
With recent political turbulence and an increase in maritime piracy and rebel force activity surrounding East Africa, local armed and security forces are facing the need to rapidly increase landward defence and security capability as well as humanitarian support capacity.

MKU will be showcasing several of its innovative products including Instavest, Police Over Vest and Boltfree helmet. Instavest, a patented product from MKU, is the fastest quick release ballistic jacket which can be divested by the wearer in one single action in a fraction of a second and re-assembled again very quickly. This innovative, pathbreaking product has been developed keeping in mind the emergencies faced by the soldier in actual combat situations. Another featured product in the personal protection range is the 'BoltFree Helmet' which is based on a 'no-drill' concept, that not only provides uniform protection across the shell but also safety from secondary metallic fragments.
