Global Survival Technology solutions provider Survitec has launched five advanced lifejackets for naval operations.
The lifejackets range from replenishment at sea, damage control and abandonment to maritime interdiction and amphibious assaults in hazardous and extreme environments.
The lifejackets incorporate advancements in bladder technology by Survitec’s leading lifejacket brand, Crewsaver, and are designed to enhance operational effectiveness, performance, and safety when the need arises to delay, disrupt or intercept other forces.
“We have been able to develop a unique family of lifejackets for a wide range of naval operations,” said former Royal Marine Commando and Survitec Category Manager Scott Tonks, who was involved in the design. “All lifejackets in the MarOps range are designed for a specific operational need but can significantly reduce the overall number of lifejackets required. We believe this is the most advanced range of military-grade lifejackets currently available.”
Marin and XTP 290N from the MarOps range are being unveiled to the global defence sector for the first time at the special forces trade show at the Camp de Souge, Gironde, France. The MarOps Marin and MarOps XTP 290N perform to ISO 12402-2. Together with MarOps ErgoFit 290N SOLAS, the lifejackets comprise an ErgoFit bladder that distributes buoyancy uniquely around the wearer to maximise in-water support and airway protection.
European military tested and independently verified, the MarOps Marin lifejacket weighs 1kg with a fire retardant cover and is designed specifically for maritime interdiction and interception missions. It can accommodate equipment positioned at the chest and tailored to work with existing operational equipment, delivering performance.
