Category: Defence Industry

MDH Defense has been awarded a major contract by FNSS Savunma Sistemleri to supply 300 CBRN filtration systems and airconditioning as part of the M113 upgrade package for Saudi Arabia.

The work will be carried out in country, with the first vehicles expected to be returned to service during 2008.

The CBRN filtration unit and the air-conditioning system will utilise an integrated multi-function control panel which will be the new MDH Defense digital unit that incorporates membrane panel switching with a Vacuum Fluorescent Display (VFD).

The complete system has the following features:

  • Combined CBRN and AC digital control box with VFD data display

  • CBRN filtration to NATO standard AC/225(Panel VII) D251

  • Vehicle over pressure or face mask system CBRN filtration capability

  • 9kW of spot cooling from the airconditioning system

  • Air-conditioning volume flow rate nominally 1200m3/hr

Although this contract covers around 300 vehicles, it is understood that follow-on contracts could lead to the upgrade of the entire fleet, which is rumoured to number in excess of 2000 vehicles.
