Our story started in the garden shed of Reginald Foster Dagnall’s two storey Victorian home in London. In 1920, Reginald, an inventor and engineer, was tasked with creating flotation bags, stored in the fuselages of planes, to prevent them from sinking. This life saving innovation became the founding principle of Survitec, formerly known as RFD, paving the way for the world leading critical safety and solutions provider we now know today.
1st Battalion The Mercian Regiment (1 Mercian), the Salisbury-based Armoured Infantry unit specialised in urban warfare, took delivery of the first set of Inflatable Walls Training System (IWTS) in August 2019. 1 Mercian immediately benefited from the flexibility and portability of the system to deliver urban close quarter battle (CQB) training. IWTS enabled 1 Mercian to empower junior commanders to own and deliver training to their soldiers and enhance their skills in a safe environment. They shared their experience with the wider Field Army, in conjunction with Survitec, at a demonstration of the IWTS at Bulford Camp in November 2019.
Our mission: To be the world leader in our chosen markets for critical safety and survival solutions.
