Best “protection to weight ratio”
With the ever increasing threats like counterinsurgency and terrorism in border areas/ urban centers/ airports/industrial hubs etc., there is necessity of affording reliable protection for vehicles and aircrafts. Usage of improvised explosive devices (IEDs) and high lethality bullets is almost common now and makes the task further demanding. There has to be a specific solution for every kind of “vehicle-threat” combination. This is to ensure that the solutions are neither “over-done” (thus affecting vehicle performance) nor are “under-done” (inadequate protection).
Protecting the occupants without compromising the maneuverability is the key to designing effective protection solutions. The light weight armor systems offered by SM Carapace use composite panels made from materials like aramids, Ultra High Molecular Weight Polyethylene (UHMWPE) and ceramics to provide the best “protection to weight ratio”.
