Vehicle crew protection from IED blasts

Allen Vanguard : 11 September, 2009  (New Product)
Experts in blast mitigation and protection develop crew survivability system for vehicle occupants from explosion blasts and heat effects
Allen-Vanguard is introducing two new solution suites at the Defence Systems & Equipment International (DSEi) exhibition in London, United Kingdom from 8 - 11 September (stand number 582 in the UK pavilion).

The new combat vehicle crew survivability product suite protects vehicle crew from IEDs, including Radio Controlled IEDs, blast effects, and heat stress. The crew survivability suite includes:

* Equinox Electronic Countermeasures (ECM) system, which delivers advanced RC-IED jamming capabilities
* Blast attenuation seats for crew survivability
* Customized cooling systems for personnel and electronics
* On-board blast incident sensors
* Personal protection for cupola gunners and dismounted personnel;
* Mobile hydration systems for vehicle crew.

The new light-scale, air-portable counter-IED and EOD suite enables teams conducting Improvised Explosive Device Disposal (IEDD), Conventional Munitions Disposal (CMD), and Search operations to quickly move an operator and specialty equipment in and out of forward positions over rough terrain or in areas with limited access. A rugged ATV and trailer enable rapid deployment with a variety of mission-specific gear, including:

* The highly versatile Digital Vanguard, a lightweight robot armed with C-IED weapons
* The Med-Eng EOD 9 bomb suit or SRS5 personal protective ensemble
* Mine and ordnance locators, EOD toolkits and remote firing units
* A complete array of search and detection equipment.

“These new solution suites significantly improve combat vehicle crew survivability and advance the capability of mobile teams to locate and defeat IEDs,” said David Luxton, President & CEO of Allen Vanguard. “Complementing this are actionable intelligence reports derived from our world-recognized HMS Triton Terrorist Incident Database. By combining the very latest threat intelligence with mission-designed equipment and specialized training, we ensure that field personnel have a truly sustainable capability against ever-evolving threats.”
