Friday, September 18th, 2015

Savannah, GA – PolyCase Ammunition, makers of ammunition for the 21st century, launches its revolutionary Inceptor by PolyCase line of ammunition in the United Kingdom during the 2015 Defense and Security Equipment International trade show at the ExCeL convention center in London, beginning Tuesday, 15 September through Friday, 18 September 2015.

Fair goers can view the Inceptor by PolyCase ammunition lineup at either of the two PolyCase Ammunition booths, S4-180 or N5-371. To learn more about this revolutionary ammunition please visit our company representatives as well as European and United Kingdom agents during the fair.

“PolyCase Ammunition continues to lead the way in the advancement of ammunition manufacturing for the 21st century. Our proprietary, injection molded projectiles are range compliant yet produce the terminal performance demanded by our European customers, be they hunters, sport shooters or defense and security operators. Our customers appreciate the higher velocities, flatter trajectories and match-grade accuracy afforded at highly competitive pricing, courtesy of the patented materials and advanced manufacturing methods used to produce the Inceptor by PolyCase line of brass-cased ammunition,” said PolyCase Ammunition CEO and Founder, Paul Lemke.

Inceptor by PolyCase ammunition features their patent-pending metal-polymer projectiles produced by a patent-pending, technologically advanced and fully automated injection-molding process. The material –– a proprietary metal alloy with a high-tensile strength nylon binder developed specifically for projectiles –– produces lighter, faster, extremely accurate bullets with less recoil that are engineered to display uniformity in concentricity and weight.


New LWAC Ammunition Case Heralds Revolution In Military Ammunition Resupply

LWAC - M113

PPD shows fully tested LWAC ammunition case which reduces weight by 70%

Hvidovre Denmark 15th September 2015: A recently tested lightweight small arms ammunition case is on display on the PPD stand, S7-261, during DSEI. Utilising composite materials and innovative design it reduces the weight of a standard NATO ammunition case by 70% and increases the number of rounds that can be carried on a standard NATO pallet by 10%.

The PPD LWAC (Lightweight Ammunition Case) completed various UN tests in Feb 2015 and was accepted by the end user in May 2015. The LWAC is now certified for use in non-operational areas such as training, paving the way for initial orders for training ammunition etc. The operational area tests (STANAG 4423) are underway. So far the LWAC has passed all of those it has faced such as the bonfire and being “fired at” tests.

The significance of the weight saving is demonstrated by the savings that Denmark would have made during its deployment to Afghanistan in 2012. It would have represented a saving of 8 C-130 flights (and €1.14M) just in entry flights let alone savings on in theatre transport. The US is striving to achieve a 10% reduction in theatre/combat zone transport. It has been calculated that such a saving would have saved the US 7 lives a year in Afghanistan. Shifting ammunition is a very large part of the logistic requirement so any weight saving has an instant human return not to mention savings in costs, CO2 emissions and other green issues etc. For the humble infantryman the weight saving will reduce future medical costs for damaged knees and backs.

LWAC stacked

PPD’s LWAC can be safely packed and stowed with no requirement for modification to platforms, stowage systems or weapon mounts. Different colours can be incorporated into the composite LWAC case to signifying the type of ammunition within it, blue= training, green=operational etc. As the LWAC cases can be made transparent, still with the colouring pigment, the number of rounds can be counted without having to open the case saving time during stock checks. An RFID tag can be built it allowing each case, its content and its movement to be tracked from the moment the LWAC case is made to the moment it comes out of service.

“The LWAC has undergone a series of rigorous tests conducted by NAMMO Raufoss and watched by independent observers. LWAC® performed exactly as we predicted and wanted,” said Jan Engmann, CEO of PPD.

“The effort put in by our specialist advisers and experts has been vindicated and the benefits of using composite in this way are there for all to see. The weight savings we have achieved with the resulting cost reduction make it a simple decision for logisticians,” added Engmann.

“Our strategy has been global from the beginning and the LWAC is already under evaluation by the MoD´s of UK, US, Singapore, UAE, Denmark and Norway,” he continued

The LWAC is fully recyclable without any preparation and meets all the EU requirements for “green gas” emissions out to 2040. Other cases and lightweight pallets are in design.


Angel 7 Industries – Imagery From The Latest Photo Shoot

Monday, September 14th, 2015

Angel 7 Industries has provided imagery and a release from their latest photo shoot of the i-RMR ballistic lens technology.


The most versatile eye pro on the market. A7 has developed a proprietary manufacturing process that allows various technologies to be combined into a single lens for multi mission capable eye pro systems that can be worn either day or night. A7’s Ghost Shield photochromic technology, the industry’s fastest and clearest photochromic, has successfully been combined with High Definition, LEP, and mirrored options (MP series) that transform from slightly sheened lenses into fully mirrored lenses in direct sunlight.

The benefit is that an operator now only needs to carry one lens instead of two or three to compensate for different threat levels and for day and night time use. A7’s Apollo, Raptor, and Stealth eye pro systems will debut at the 2015 DESI show in London, the world’s leading international Security and Defense event.


Tyron And Global Wheelto Supply Run Flat Wheel Assemblies For Springbuck APC

Sunday, September 13th, 2015


Reduces production time and enhances vehicle capability

Loughborough, UK, 15th September 2015: The Springbuck Armoured Personnel Carrier manufactured in South Africa by DCD Defence, is fitted with complete runflat wheel assemblies provided by Tyron and its South African partner Global Wheel.

The initial contract for three complete sets of wheels are fitted with the Global Wheel bolt-together rim, Tyron multi-part All Terrain Rubber Runflat inserts and Continental tyres. These systems will be exposed to extreme harsh African terrains.


“By providing the complete assembly, DCD Defence can reduce the production line assembly requirements. The end user is provided with a proven, highly reliable solution which will keep the vehicle moving safely in the event of a sudden tyre deflation. The wheels can be changed without any special tools even at the roadside,” said Richard Glazebrook, Managing Director of Tyron Runflats Ltd.

Tyron ATR wheel assembly has a unique multi-part rubber runflat fitted to the Global Wheels two part bolt-together steel wheels. This system is locally manufactured specifically for the Springbuck APC.

The Tyron All Terrain Rubber runflat is not only a multi-piece unit but also successfully passed ballistic tests. Emphasis was placed on the connections to ensure that under severe ballistic attack the ATR is not compromised as rubber absorbs far more energy than hard materials from kerb strikes and IEDs.
The Global Wheels bolt-together wheels are available in both steel and aluminium, the rubber of the ATR is enhanced to ensure beadlock, which offers a guaranteed high level off-road flat tyre performance which is not possible with composite runflats.

With Tyron ATRs fitted, the Springbuck APC can be driven for a minimum of 50 km even with all tyres being damaged.

The Springbuck APC features a powerful MWM6 cylinder diesel turbo charged engine and carries a driver and ten personnel. With B6 ballistic protection upgradeable to B7, the all-steel armoured V-shaped hull is designed to withstand a TM57 mine directly under the hull and two under any wheel. The standard configuration can be easily adapted to suit various applications and end user requirements.

Tyron is exhibiting its range of ATRs on stand N9-300 during DSEI 2015 in London from 15 to 18 September. DCD Defence is exhibiting its range on stand N3-110.

Media Release

Date: 10th September 2015


Casualty handling on the battlefield is critical to maintaining moral. To achieve this not only is excellent training needed but also a high quality ambulance fit out. Marshall Aerospace and Defence Group has developed a range of stretcher systems to be fitted into armoured ambulances and will be discussing these during DSEI 2015 on stand S3-310.

The systems have been developed based on the proven experience of supplying stretcher solutions for a range of armoured ambulances in service across Europe and over 800 stretcher systems for the ubiquitous Land Rover Ambulance which has been in service around the world for over 40 years with the British and other Armies.

“The skills of our engineering teams in developing these stretcher systems demonstrate that not only that Marshall is able to work closely with the end user and our partners but also has the innovate skills to deliver a quality, long lasting solution which is fit for purpose,” said Steve Fitz-Gerald, Chief Executive of Marshall Aerospace and Defence Group.

“Whenever nations are either upgrading their vehicle fleets or purchasing new ones there are opportunities for us to integrate the medical equipment into the clinical white space as well as provide stretcher systems using our proven vehicle engineering skills,” he added.

The stretcher systems are designed to maximise the working space in each type of vehicle for the medical attendant to monitor and treat the casualty, whether on a stretcher or seated.

The loading systems are engineered to minimise the effort and time of loading the stretcher by the combat medics into the vehicle so reducing the risk to themselves, the casualty and the vehicle.
