Pearson awarded C-IED roller contract

28th April 2017 - 12:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Pearson Engineering has received a contract worth nearly $8 million from the US Army to supply counter-improvised explosive device (C-IED) roller systems, the company announced on 24 April.

The roller systems are being acquired as part of a US foreign military sales contract for Afghanistan.

Under the contract, Pearson will provide a large number of rollers in a similar configuration to those previously supplied for US Army use in Iraq and Afghanistan. This configuration is known as the Self-Protection Adaptive Roller Kit (SPARK) OIF(R), and was specifically designed to deal with the threat and terrain in those theatres.

The system protects Mine-Resistant Ambush Protected Vehicles from the effects of IEDs across the track width of the vehicle. They will support the mobility of the HHMWV fleet in Afghanistan.
