AmSafeBridport’s experience in developing Tarian, a revolutionary, lightweight and flexible RPG vehicle armour system, combined with UMO’s track record in establishing advanced, specialised military hardware products into Poland’s Special Operations Command and Police units, means that this agreement will offer UMO’s customers the latest in RPG protection technology for defence and security vehicles, both within Poland and on international peace-keeping missions.
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 verified Tarian’s high level of performance and multi-hit capability. Tarian was launched in 2009 and it is now fitted to a variety of British military vehicles, including those in service in Afghanistan, following a £10.6M order from the MOD in 2012.
“AmSafeBridport is delighted to appoint UMO as our representative in Poland. UMO is superbly placed to help us explore opportunities in the Polish market and Tarian fits in extremely well with the other products and services UMO offers” Ian Kentfield, President of AmSafeBridport Ltd, said. Arkadiusz Szuba, CEO at UMO, commented : “UMO is very excited to be working alongside AmSafeBridport to offer Tarian’s innovative technology to our Polish defence and security forces. We look forward to a fruitful future together.”
