As part of a highly innovative commercial company, Polaris Government & Defense provides customers with the best technology and capabilities tailored to their needs – backed by robust, large-scale design, development, testing and production of those vehicles.

    “In 2013 we introduced the MRZR, which led to a rapid fielding of a critical capability for Special Forces, and subsequently the selection of the MRZR as the platform for the SOCOM LTATV Program,” said Jed Leonard, director, Polaris Government & Defense. “The pursuit of innovation and capability improvement at Polaris continues. And with the launch of the two-seat variant, our customers have even greater flexibility for their missions and can choose between gas, diesel, and now two or four seats for their MRZRs.”

    The MRZR-D2 complements the current platform line-up, which are all V-22 transportable and modular in design.
    -MRZR 2: Gas, 2-4 seats, 1 litter mount, 1,000 lb payload
    -MRZR 4: Gas, 4-6 seats, 2 litter mounts, 1,500 lb payload
    -NEW MRZR-D2: Diesel, 2-4 seats, 1 litter mount, 1,000 lb payload, 80 percent more range than gas, more auxiliary power
    -MRZR-D4: Diesel, 4-6 seats, 2 litter mounts, 1,500 lb payload, 80 percent more range than gas, more auxiliary power

    The MRZR platform is flexible and modular to support uses ranging from rapid personnel deployment, to command and control, casualty evacuation to supply transport missions. The vehicles are proven, affordable, reliable and easily maintained throughout the lifecycle with a commercial supply chain and the Polaris global network. MRZRs have redefined ultralight, off-road mobility for military vehicles and are mission critical for expeditionary forces in the U.S. and allied countries to meet current and future mission demands and threats. And because MRZRs are in service throughout the world, there is a high degree of interoperability and commonality among U.S. and allied forces.

    High-profile anti-drone technology boosts capabilities to help keep more men and women safe

    Abu Dhabi, UAE — Feb. 17, 2017 — Sensofusion is announcing increased functionalities and in-demand service features for their premiere AIRFENCE drone countermeasure platform.

Additionally, AIRFENCE 4.0 is capable of time-of-flight triangulation and MIMO antenna setups. Of perhaps most importance to IDEX’s more than 100,000 attendees is AIRFENCE 4.0’s external detection capabilities, which empower the hardware to collect evidence immediately and transmit to fleet learning platforms.

    Now in its 13th year, IDEX is the most strategically important defence exhibition in the world, featuring live demonstrations of new technologies; access to global leaders, policy and decision makers; and media coverage on a global scale. IDEX is the only international defence exhibition and conference in the Middle East and North African regions demonstrating the latest technology across land, sea and air sectors of defence. The conference provides a unique platform to establish and strengthen relationships with government departments, businesses and armed forces throughout the region.

    Sensofusion’s AIRFENCE technology is in use at international airports in Europe, as well as military bases, high profile government building and VIPs. AIRFENCE is also used in securing prisons from individuals who want to smuggle contraband. AIRFENCE mobile is being deployed for various police and military applications. AIRFENCE will soon begin protecting other critical infrastructure including nuclear power plants, waste and water treatment centers, and energy-producing facilities such as electrical substations and solar farms.
