Rapid Armor Shelter System®, "RASS"

RASS in use

The Rapid Armor Shelter System® (international patent pending) is a new, innovative modular ballistic protection system. This military certified lightweight fortification wall system is ideal for fast moving troops. Fortification walls can be built and dismantled in a few minutes allowing troops to be protected even during short stops or operations. Panels protect men or property mainly from fragments, with a protection level of v50 > 600 m/s (1.1 g FSP, STANAG 2920). For bullet protection a multipanel system with a sand filling can be used.

The Rapid Armor Shelter System® is simple and easy to use. Two basic shapes, squares (side length 950 mm, weight approx. 18 kg/each) and triangles (side length 950 mm, weight approx. 8 kg/each), are equipped with innovative quick coupling devices and supporting legs enable the construction of a large number of various fortification combinations in a very short time.

All components are capable of withstanding UV-radiation, fuel and oil spatters as well as ambient temperatures between -40°C and +60°C. The panels do not absorb moisture.

This multipurpose protection system is easy to adapt for various military, police and peace keeping applications, e.g. protection during military operations, de-mining activities, military or police sieges, UN personnel and property protection, as well as the protection of humanitarian organisations.

Various accessories including supporting legs and connecting bars are available, enabling even more versatility and customisation for the application in question.

The Rapid Armor Shelter System® can also be used for civilian protection, such as the protection of window and door openings. When hung on the exterior of vehicles during transportation, the panels protect the men and property inside.
