All mine and ballistic protection solutions are thoroughly tested and approved to STANAG4569 standards in official independent laboratories.
THE SCARABEE'S EXAMPLE
Our expertise concerning the SCARABEE’s architecture from its development phase, allows us to define optimal frame geometry. The choice of suitable armouring material and the processes used to assemble it have an important role to play, both in terms of the integrity of the shell in relation to blast from buried mines or IED and impact resistance to ballistic threats.
The protection of the occupants from the brutal accelerations the shell undergoes in a blast wave, is ensured by decoupling systems (anti-mine seats and floating floors-in-house technology) and also by the proper integration of the interior equipment so that it does not become a secondary projectile.
ARQUUS relies on its mastery of fast dynamics digital simulation in order to optimise the performance of its protection solutions and to innovate, but also to significantly reduce development time (around six months saved for the latest developments).
The SCARABEE concept also includes a number of innovations in the area of protection. Innovations relating to the structure of the shell itself, occupant decoupling systems and the very architecture of the vehicle.
