ELITE CHALLENGE, launched in 2011 is a program designed both for civilians and professionals who wish to try out what it feels like to get through Special Forces selection just like if you wanted to get into the ranks of the US Army special forces(www.elitechallenge.hu). The program is accepted officially as an © Intellectual Property of Defex Hungary Ltd. Linked to the EC program, we have started to develop the concept of “The Elite Challenge Training and Education System (ECTES)”, which is a new, ’hybrid’ training system which aims at developing individual strength, endurance, physical and mental functionality and specific movement-coordination abilities by using specifically designed training equipment and 3D training environment. Currently, we have the basic concept for the ECTES, but in order to fully place the innovation on the market, we need to develop and prototype the connected training equipment necessary for the ECTES concept. Defex owns an older school building in Kozármisleny, that will serve as an excellent base for the newly developed product demonstration and testing hall training center. We already have all building permits issued by the respective authorities for the renovation.
