Placing these Convoy Decks on the armoured vehicle floor drastically reduces the danger for the vehicle’s occupants when a vehicle is struck by an under-vehicle IED. The blast causes a shockwave which can move the armoured floor as much as 4cm in a fraction of a second, potentially crushing heels and lower legs: injuries often leading to amputation of limbs.

Although already widely used by (US) armed forces, the European CAV-market has been slow to adopt this easy-to-install product. TSS and SkyDex are happy to now be able to help keep NGO staff and security forces safe and mobile, even after surviving an IED blast.

In addition to SkyDex, TSS also expects more demand for the latest development in their Heavy Duty Wheels: an 18” alloy wheel with a TüV-tested and -certified payload of 2000kgs per wheel. The AR877-HR is designed to carry the weight of the ever increasing protection of the armoured Toyota LC200, with more platforms to follow.
