Morgan to Exhibit Cutting Edge Vehicle Armour Technology at International Armoured Vehicles

The Composites and Defence Systems business of Morgan Advanced Materials will be showcasing its latest ultra-lightweight composite CAMAC® platform armour technology at the upcoming International Armoured Vehicles conference, taking place at Twickenham Stadium in London from the 23rd-24th January.

IMG_6051Delegates at the conference will be able to learn more about Morgan’s range of vehicle survivability solutions, including applique armour and spall liner. Morgan’s applique armour, available for STANAG 4569 Levels 2-5 has been designed to deliver outstanding multi-hit protection against theatre threats at a considerable weight reduction in comparison to steel alternatives. Furthermore Morgan has specific expertise to form spall liner to meet specific platform requirements including shaping to complex geometries and integrating with existing fixtures.

As well as platform armour, Morgan will also be exhibiting its LASA® portfolio of solider protection, including advanced hybrid composite ballistic helmets, ultra-lightweight ballistic shields and a range of modular hard body armour plates for covert operations, NIJ 0101.06 level III and armour piecing special threats.

James Kempston, Business Development Director of Morgan’s Composites and Defence Systems business, commented “following a successful show in 2017, we are excited to be supporting the prestigious International Armoured Vehicles conference in 2018. This year we will be showcasing our range of high-performance and lightweight armoured vehicle survivability solutions which have been fielded on over 2,000 vehicles globally and most recently have been selected and fielded by SAIC for their ACV1.1 bid to the United States Marine Corps as well as FFG for their Wiesel 1 upgrade for the German Bundeswehr.”

The Morgan stand at International Armoured Vehicles will be located at C11 in the Rose Room and further information about Morgan’s range of CAMAC platform armour is available here.
