Samaya has just signed its first military tender with the army. The aim is to equip the 27th Mountain Infantry Brigade with tents, so that the forces can use them during their mountain training and for operational deployments in extremely cold environments.
At the same time, Samaya benefits from support from the DGA (French Ministry of Defence), for innovation and breakthrough projects concerning the army’s operational equipment. As part of this programme, Samaya works closely with the CEA (Central Commission for Nuclear Power).
This collaboration was initiated in 2021 with the support of the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes Region.
Support for dual innovation is a driving force for Samaya and, in general, for the technical textile industry. At the same time, Samaya is actively working to relocate know-how and part of production into France; with the primary ambition of meeting military needs in a strategy of growing national sovereignty.
