ArmourWorks

ArmourWorks core competence is to provide technically focused and robust integrated survivability solutions against tight deadlines. We are “Expert In Survivability™”. To define survivability in the context of our business is to say that the performance of our products in Signature Management, Blast Protection, and Armour Systems combine to give soldiers at war the greatest chance of returning home, and reducing life changing injuries.

ArmourWorks group has produced and fielded over 2,000,000 advanced armour and survivability products, including our EA TECH Seating that are currently in the Foxhound. We provide solutions across a variety of platforms globally and currently have battle proven solutions in service in Land, Sea and Air programs as well as solutions for the dismounted soldier. Using our in house survivability centre we are at the forefront of technology and our research and development continues to push the boundaries of design, materials, production and delivery to optimise our life saving products.

Signature Management and Detection Systems

Signature management is a key addition to the ArmourWorks strategy. We work across a whole spectrum of detection systems to provide solutions for both vehicle platforms and the dismounted soldier. We use cutting-edge technology to prevent the risk of being engaged by a targeted threat.

ArmourWorks armour systems are tested and combat proven. Using our in-house survivability centre we have the capability to receive various platforms and design bespoke protection systems.

TactiCAM

Signature management is key to the ArmourWorks survivability strategy, we work across the whole spectrum of detection to reduce the signature of a platform or the dismounted soldier to enhance stealth capability. TactiCAM is generated using random 3D patterns of varying geometric shapes which can be bolted onto the external armour or attached using high grade Velcro.

The resulting colours and patterns break up the flat surfaces and make it difficult for an enemy to gauge the distance to the target.
