Galvion’s Batlskin Caiman System is Selected for the Canadian Dismounted Infantry Capability Enhancement (DICE) Programme
Galvion, a world leader in innovative head protection systems and power and data management solutions, has won a major contract from the Department of National Defence (DND) Canada for its flagship Batlskin Caiman® ballistic helmet systems. The Canadian Dismounted Infantry Capability Enhancement (DICE) programme contract was awarded following a full and open competition, based on meeting stringent technical requirements, as well as comprehensive end-user evaluation. The one-year framework contract will see delivery of approximately 2100 helmets and 4200 helmet covers, in two patterns, along with spare parts. There is an option to extend to 5 years, with delivery of up to 8400 additional helmets and accessories.
“The Caiman helmet system is a platform with a unique combination of agility, protection, weight reduction, and scalability, built to meet the real-world demands of the modern battlefield,” said Jonathan Blanshay, CEO at Galvion. “Our global team is incredibly proud of the work that we do and winning this Canadian programme shortly after our recently announced NATO Support and Procurement Agency (NSPA) framework contract will mean this best-in-class helmet will be protecting more of our NATO allies around the world.” He added: “this contract award validates everything that we are trying to achieve here at Galvion. By providing the very best technical and engineering solutions possible that are also hyper-focused on end-user insight and feedback, we help to increase the agility, lethality and survivability of those who protect us.”
