Successful verification of force protection system

J & S Franklin : 10 September, 2007  (New Product)
DefenCell withstands force protection tests including vehicle impact, IED and mortar simulations
DefenCell Force Protection System has completed three vital independent
test evaluations.

The first report by TRL, covers the successful completion of DefenCell in
vehicle crash tests, stopping a 7.5t truck.

The second report by Advantica covers a series of blast tests
successfully completed at Advantica's Spadeadam test site in Cumbria, UK. A
range of DefenCell walls, Sangars and firing positions were subjected to
attacks of up to 15kgs C4 in cased and shaped charges to simulate mortar,
RPG and IED threats.

The final report covers ballistic trials carried out at Wiltshire
Ballistics Services ranges. The DefenCell barrier was tested against a
range of weapons from 5.56mm to 20mm calibre, including .50 and 14.5 AP,
using single shot and sustained fire.


DefenCell is a lightweight, compact, easily deployed range of defensive
protection systems, which can be used in a variety of roles, including
defensive structures such as walls, sangers, bunkers, anti-terrorist crash
barriers and even flood defences.

DefenCell combines established geocell design with the latest geotextile
construction technology to provide an innovative, practical and versatile
multipurpose system. DefenCell has been successfully used to provide force
protection to military personnel and facilities in a number of demanding
operational situations.
