DRDO hands over tech to defence firm to manufacture bullet-proof jackets

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.

In his address, DRDO Chairman S Christopher asked the private firm to maintain a strict vigil on the quality of the bullet-proof jackets which will be used by the Indian Army and the paramilitary forces.
