Allen-Vanguard introduces latest IED protection solutions

1st June 2011 - 13:00 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Allen-Vanguard unveiled its latest solutions suite for military vehicle crew survivability today at Canada's largest defence and security event in support of Canadian and allied forces facing the on-going threat of Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs).

Featured on display at CANSEC are the Company's latest advanced solutions to protect vehicle crew with battle-proven technologies including Blast Seats, Electronic Countermeasures, Thermal Management Systems and Blast Sensors.

"We are excited and proud to present the Canadian Forces with advanced solutions for protecting their mounted frontline personnel from IEDs and related threats," commented Allen-Vanguard CEO, Dennis Morris. "The capabilities and solutions we offer are based on our clear mission focus and deep understanding of the nature of the threats."

The Company's industry-leading Blast Seats for drivers, commanders and troops provide superior blast energy attenuation to maximize survivability. Two interactive exhibits, one of which includes the National Research Council's (NRC) technology demonstrator vehicle, afford members of the crew survivability community and other delegates an opportunity to trial and learn about Allen-Vanguard's seats for upcoming programs, including CCV, MSVS, LAV III and TAPV. Also on display are other advanced systems integral to Allen-Vanguard's survivability suite, including:

· the Company's latest mobile Electronic Countermeasures (ECM) equipment, which jams signals to prevent the detonation of Radio Controlled IEDs and provides additional programmable Electronic Warfare (EW) capabilities;

· a Thermal Management system to cool vehicle crews and their mission-critical electronics; and

· the Company's novel BlackBIRD blast sensor, a new technology for measuring and collecting vital data about the blast forces acting on a vehicle during an explosive event.
