AITEX participates in the 4rd meeting of the European project VESTLIFE (Ultralight modular bullet proof integral solution for dismounted soldier protection) in De Lier (Holanda). where the first results of the research line for ballistic protection have been presented. The European Defense Agency (EDA) Project Officer, representatives of the Spanish, Portuguese and Finnish Armies as well as the different centers and companies from Spain, Netherlands, Portugal, Italy and Finland partners of this project coordinated by AITEX have participated in the meeting.
The goal of VESTLIFE is to develop a new lightweight, modular ballistic protection system with integral NBCR detection capability. The clothing will provide a wider range of cover while maintaining comfort as well as lighter ballistic panels, ensuring optimum balance between protection and comfort by adapting the protective surface to mission-specific requirements.
