Inflatable / Military Airbag TechnologyInflatable Military Airbag Technology

SCHROTH has developed and delivered four-point restraints with integrated airbag systems for 125 German Boxer Armored Personnel Carrier (APC) vehicles.

The SCHROTH inflatable restraint system offers numerous innovative features including shoulder harnesses fitted with belt-integrated airbags.

In the event of a crash, sensors measure the resulting acceleration and trigger the gas generators that produce micro pyrotechnical charges allowing the airbags to be deployed within a fraction of a second.

Although airbags have been in commercial vehicles for years, there are very few applications of airbag technology for a production ground vehicle developed specifically for military applications.

This inflatable restraint brings state-of-the-art protection by integrating the airbag into the shoulder harness and providing protection for side-facing occupants.
