Morgan Advanced Materials (Morgan) announced customized armored composite crew compartments, for reconnaissance and tactical vehicles, as well as Special Forces vehicles.
It is based on its composite and ceramic pod technology. The pod creates a detachable, blast and ballistic-resistant crew compartment, which can be easily integrated into customer-produced chassis and can be modified to provide higher levels of protection if required.
Morgan recently worked to design and develop a custom composite crew compartment for Tata Motors’ Light Armored Multipurpose Vehicle (LAMV) program for the Indian Ministry of Defense.
The composite and ceramic pod provides a weight saving of more than 1000 kilograms (2204 pounds), making it less than half the weight of a similarly protected steel structure.
