Protection of people and valuables
Add-on armor can be used to effectively increase the protection level of existingand new vehicles. With composite technology the weight penalty to the vehicle can be reduced, making implementation of high-level protection solutions possibleeven for light vehicles without loosing mobility.
Add-on armor systems arecustomized to meet a specific threat requirement by including different types of materials in the armor solutionand considering any existing base armor, such as a steel or aluminium vehicle hull. This renders all armor solutions provided by Composhield unique to the specific application and scenario.
Composhield is dedicated to developing light and durable armor solutions to defeat ballistic and IED threats as faced on the battlefield today.
Composhield armor solution on vehicle
Ballistic threats from hand guns, rifles, machine guns etc. is an ever present risk to military vehicles. Protection against different types of weapons and ammunitions is essential to maintainoperational freedom in a hostile environment.
Composhield armor solutions can be tailored to meet any ballistic requirement and have been tested and certified independently for a wide range of threats:
Composhield ballistic armor is covered by patents and has been developed specifically to ensure:
Composhield armor solutions can withstand multiple impacts from weapons fire, fragmentation and blast without breaking up and leaving the vehicle unprotected.
Composhield armor solutions are also resistantto high temperature and chemical agent, and have a high degree of wear resistance.
Artillery shells used as Improvised Explosive Device
The threat of improvised explosive devices (IEDs) presents the most severe threat to many forces in today's operational areas. IEDs come in many different forms and can subject targets to both heavy blast and severe fragmentation.
In many cases old artillery shells are fitted with new detonators, activated by a cellular phone, and placed next to the road. This constitutes a very high threat to particularly light and medium vehicles that were not designed to meet such requirements.
Composhield armor solutions have been applied specifically to counter IED threatsby providing very high structural durability to withstand the blast and superior stopping capabilities to counter fragmentation.
Current scenarios also call for protection against explosively formed projectiles (EFPs), which present an even more severe threat today. Composhield armor solutions are tested against such threats and can be tailored to meet any requirement needed.
