“Q-Net provides lightweight, easy-to-install, superior protection against RPG attacks,” said Andy Rogers, executive vice president and general manager, Technology Solutions, QinetiQ North America. “The U.S. military continues to show its confidence in both the M-ATV and Q-Net, and we are proud to provide our warfighters this important, life-saving RPG protection system.”

The Q-Net RPG defeat system has been widely deployed in Iraq and Afghanistan over the past few years. This ultra-light weight, affordable and highly effective system has the ability to withstand multiple hits and is easily adaptable to a variety of platforms.

Vehicles protected by Q-Net can operate as designed without the burden of excessive weight, which contributes to higher roll-over risk, wear and tear on operating systems and excessive fuel consumption. Q-Net easily installs in the field for rapid deployment anywhere in the world.
