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.

Tarian 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.

Neal McKeever, Sales & Marketing Director of AmSafe Bridport, said:
“Tarian’s extraordinary ability to be fitted to a broad range of vehicles is demonstrated on the platforms on which it is displayed at Eurosatory. Lightweight armoured vehicles, such as Sherpa, can now be protected from RPG attacks due to Tarian’s low weight (compared with heavy bar armour). Additionally, vehicles with multiple moving parts, such as Wisent 2, can also now be protected because of Tarian’s flexible fixing brackets and the fact that it doesn’t require tension in the armour net.”
