The development of close-quarter combat training armour for defence and law enforcement personnel has been given a boost through a new partnership.
Chiron says it has been working with multiple expert defence and law enforcement end-users and trainers over the past 24 months to refine its prototype suits.
It will unveil the flagship product – the Chiron-X1Ô – alongside A.C.E. at the LAND FORCES Exposition in in Brisbane from June 1-3.
Chiron says its highly protective body armour system sets a new standard in CQC training and is designed to withstand repeated, high-impact forces and real, high-speed strikes to vital body targets, while maximising agility and manoeuvrability.
“Manufactured from hard-plate, advanced composite materials, the Chiron-X1Ô enables seamless ‘force continuum escalation’ from kinetic to non-kinetic without changing suits or equipment, allowing superior levels of combat realism while reinforcing life-saving muscle memory,” it says in a statement.
Chiron says the partnership will allow it to quickly scale production to meet demand for suits.
