Leading safety equipment manufacturer and supplier Survitec will demonstrate a range of Maritime Defence equipment, including boats and personal protective equipment (PPE), with live waterborne displays at DSEI from 10th – 13th September 2019 at Excel, London. This will be the third time in recent months this display will be performed, having kicked off in Abu Dhabi at IDEX 2019 earlier this year. The typically high energy daily demo will see the Survitec specialist team, consisting of former military operators carry out a simulated evacuation from height from a ship, followed by in-water escape and evade maneuverers.
The demonstration will feature a number of new additions from Survitec, including the Marine Infantry Ensemble, which features the breathable and lightweight Atacama Military dry suit to keep the operator comfortable for long periods of use, the XTP290 low-profile life preserver and new SABRE ASCENT, designed to protect the wearer when climbing up ladders on ship sides. The SABRE ASCENT is also the only fully kitted load carriage and armour system in the world that adds swimmer buoyancy and is certified to height safety regulation BSEN361 for vertical ascent operations.
Completing the Marine Infantry Ensemble will be the Survitec Pre-Hospital Care Systems (PCS) unique FC-4 waterproof medical rucksack, used by the team’s combat medic. The waterproof design ensures the bag can be fully submerged in water keeping the integrity of the equipment fully intact. The medical capability adds even more value to the ensemble, ensuring injured combatants can be treated to a high standard at the point of injury saving precious time following a serious incident.
The demonstration will also feature the recently updated Survitec 530GPM inflatable boat. The new model is constructed from high specification Hypalon material which is abrasion and UV resistant. With additional features, such as innovative single point inflation, extra wear patches on the tubes, extra rubbing strake on the keel and a double skin reinforcement on the bow area, the boat is able to withstand robust operations and impact damage during beach landings.
Survitec personnel will be stationed at the docks area of Excel showcasing the full Maritime Defence boats and PPE capability along with a presence in the Naval Zone on stand S10-310.
