AmSafe Bridport Limited is displaying its Tarian® RPG Armour system at Defence Services Asia (DSA) from 14-17 April 2014. This revolutionary, lightweight and durable armour is being displayed on a purpose-built demonstration rig on AmSafe Bridport’s stand: 4010S in Hall 4. This is the first time that Tarian’s latest technological advances, including a fully flexible mounting system, have been shown in Malaysia.
It is this most recent system which is now fitted to a variety of UK military vehicles following the company’s £10.6M contract award from the UK MOD on 21st December 2012.
     

Tarian is a highly effective solution for protection against RPGs and also the world’s lightest. Developed in close collaboration with the UK Ministry of Defence (MOD), the Tarian system has been extensively tested – including over 750 live shots – in the UK, France and the USA. This testing has verified Tarian’s high level of performance and multi-hit capability. Tarian was launched in 2009 and is currently in service fitted to a wide range of vehicles deployed by the British Army in Afghanistan.

The core element of the Tarian RPG defeat mechanism is an extremely strong textile net manufactured from high-tenacity fibres. Tarian nets are attached to vehicles using a robust flexible mounting system to withstand harsh vehicle operating conditions with low susceptibility to damage. Compared with traditional bar armour RPG protection, Tarian provides significantly improved protection performance and, being significantly lighter, enables vehicles to operate more efficiently.

Neal McKeever, Sales & Marketing Director of AmSafe Bridport, said:
“Now that Tarian has been proven, both in rigorous trials and in theatre with the British Army, it is the focus of considerable international interest, especially from the Far East. Therefore, AmSafe Bridport is delighted to showcase Tarian at Defence Services Asia, where we expect it to be the centre of attention for armour systems.”
