Abu Dhabi, UAE, February 23, 2017:  Al Hosn Armored Systems, a subsidiary of Tawazun Holding, announced the production of a new cutting edge, extra light weight protective vest. The new armored vest, which weighs only 8.5 kg, will be made in cooperation with Khalifa University Research Center and DuPont and is an innovative protection solution for (troops, personnel, etc.) that will be produced for the protection of individuals.

The vest will be produced based on the standards of the UAE GHQ Armed Forces complying with the National Institute Justice standards Level 3++ and is a collaborative effort by using the machinery of Khalifa University Research Center, the material of DuPont and the operational expertise of Al Hosn in production. Al Hosn are planning to increase production of the armored vest to fulfil the demand of the Armed Forces and other defense entities.
