Vehicle-mounted self-protection technologies to meet modern survivability challenges.
Vehicle crews face an increasing number of threats on the modern battlefield. Ballistic threats together with electronic and cyber attacks put crews and their missions at risk. The protection of vehicles and their crews is as important today as it always has been.
Our protective solutions for vehicles include a wide range of systems and equipment designed to protect vehicles and crews by providing early warnings of threats, local situational awareness, protection against RCIED and active protection. They act as the crew’s eyes and ears in the field; they keep crew members safe, help them manoeuvre their vehicle and engage threats more easily and effectively, in both urban and open battlespace environments. They give vehicle crews the best possible chance of completing their missions successfully.
Thales’s state-of-the-art sensors – thermal imagers, laser warning detectors and an array of acoustic sensors, notify crews if their vehicle is targeted by a laser rangefinder or designator, and alerts them to incoming enemy fire. Our driver vision enhancement products enable commanders to make rapid, high-quality decisions on engagements and manoeuvres, without ever exposing their head and shoulders above armour. Our IED detection system and jammer automatically alerts the driver of threats and counters RCIED. Finally, Thales’s cyber detection system detects cyber security threats to the vehicle in real time.
Thanks to Thales’s vehicle protection systems, land forces have the power to see and hear everything they need to, day or night, at tactical or long range, on any platform, in any environment.
