The Armatec AOA crew survivability system has been designed and developed to address the combination of blast loads and fragmentation threats from an improvised explosive device (IED), as well as kinetic energy from ballistic threats.
Armatec’s Add on Armour is a lightweight, composite and ceramic solution which structurally reinforces vehicle base hull and provides modular and scalable ballistic protection from Level 1 up to Level 5 STANAG 4569 AED-55 Vol.1, without compromising vehicle mobility.
Additionally, Armatec’s Add on Armour provides protection for:
Close proximity IED fragmentation protection
Kinetic energy ballistic threats
Side IED blasts
Wheel and track-well IED blasts
Simultaneous multi-hit events of random fragment sizes and impact distributions
Blast loadings due to proximity of the threats
Armatec provides the Canadian Forces and allied militaries with holistic survivability solutions for both wheeled and tracked armoured vehicles. Since its founding in 1997, Armatec’s distinctive engineering philosophy has delivered significantly improved crew protection and vehicle survivability without compromising mission effectiveness or equipment sustainability.
