The introduction of an Innovation Zone will highlight new and futuristic technologies, focusing on active protection, autonomy and biometric surveillance. The Future Protected Vehicle programme being developed by BAE Systems aims to highlight both short and long-term technologies and concepts, which can be used to boost the effectiveness of lightweight armoured vehicles, and will be a key highlight of the Innovation Zone.

BvS10 Armoured All Terrain Vehicle

The track record alone is evidence of the extreme performance of our All Terrain Vehicles. More than 11,000 vehicles and over 50 variants of the BvS10 have been delivered worldwide. The BvS10 is a further development of the smaller Bv206S and the latest version, the BvS10 MkII provides perfect combination of protection, mobility and payload.


With a built in growth potential for the future, the vehicle is designed for a payload of up to 6 tonnes. Built for the highest level of tactical and strategical mobility, the unique design of the chassis, power train and steering units gives the vehicle speed and comfort on road and in terrain comparable with modern infantry fighting vehicles.
     
The Bofors LEMUR system is a fully mature product in operation and combat proven. With its high performance stabilisation, integrated fire control system and high sighting/firing accuracy LEMUR is a very effective system with high first round hit probability. The accuracy and low dispersion minimise the collateral damage and also minimise the use of ammunition.

With many turret systems, the gunner is often exposed to possible enemy fire, but with BAE Systems’ Self-Defense Remotely Operated Weapon (SD-ROW) turret, a vehicle’s operator can engage hostile targets without exposing their gunner.

With many turret systems, the gunner is often exposed to possible enemy fire, but with BAE Systems’ Self-Defense Remotely Operated Weapon (SD-ROW) turret, a vehicle’s operator can engage hostile targets without exposing their gunner.

BAE Systems first introduced its lightweight SD-ROW turret at Africa Aerospace and Defense, a trade show held in Cape Town, South Africa in September of last year. Since then, the turret, which is equipped with a small calibre weapon for use on a variety of lighter attack vehicles and Mine Protected Vehicles (MPV), has been garnering interest from customers who are in need of an effective, yet economical first-order defence solution for a myriad of operational vehicles.

While BAE Systems’ armour-protected commercial vehicles provide occupants with extra security and peace of mind, they must also be inconspicuous and appear just like original equipment manufacturer vehicles. It’s a painstaking process that begins with the vehicle being completely dissembled first, before it is rebuilt and reinforced with life-saving armour components.
