"Cognit demonstrated the feasibility of designing an anti-shrapnel vest, which provides ballistic protection for 95% of the user population in the British Army using only 8 vest sizes.
In a British Ministry of Defense tender our company was requested to develop patterns for a personal protective vest against shrapnel that would guarantee coverage for 95% of the population of infantry soldiers using the minimum number of sizes. The challenge of developing measures for a textile product based on anthropometry research was significant as it was unprecedented in other armies.
Cognit met the challenge within a short deadline and provided a document that was submitted as part of the tender documents explaining how to obtain protection for 95.5% of the British infantry soldiers with only 8 vest sizes.
Cognit’s work was characterized by in-depth and “out of the box” thinking, and by their ability to be purposeful, accurate and reasoned.
In January 2015 our company won the tender in question and signed a multi-year contract to equip all infantry soldiers in the British army with the ballistic protective vest."
