Cambridge University high tech spinoff Q-Flo has formed a joint venture ‘Tortech’ with Israeli arms company Plason.
The joint venture will allow Plason access to Cambridge university’s advanced carbon fibre technology, highly useful in Plason’s armour producing factories. The agreement gives Plason exclusive sales and marketing rights to defence oriented material.
The carbon fibre technology gives the ability to make extremely light, strong armour.
Tortech will be an Israeli based company, presumably based at the Plasan Sasa kibbutz.
Plason appears to have the right to commercialise all military aspects of the Cambridge developed technology.
This is a clear victory for the Israeli arms industry and a significant gain in technology for the Israeli military and its occupation forces in Palestine.
