New Bedford, MA (PRWEB) July 31, 2012
Incident Control Systems, LLC (ICS) announced today that it has delivered armored fuel tank enclosures to Robertson Fuel Systems featuring Revolution Armor, ICS’s Innovative steel composite system. The armored fuel enclosures will be integrated as part of Robertson’s self-sealing, blast tolerant survivable EFT development and testing.
“This is a significant milestone for Revolution Armor to be integrated as part of a Heavy Combat Vehicle development. To date we have designed and provided armor solutions for a number of platforms in the Light & Medium Tactical Vehicle family, including the JLTV, HMMWV and the ASV,” said ICS General Manager Steve Monette.
Utilizing their rapid design and manufacturing capabilities, ICS delivered two innovative modular fuel cell enclosures featuring field-replaceable armor panels, structural support for the flexible fuel cell and a robust attachment system for the vehicle integration.
“Robertson required us to meet a rapid delivery schedule that required ICS to complete the entire design and fabrication process within 16 days. We are extremely pleased that our entire team was able to deliver on time and within budget,” said Monette.
Revolution Armor utilizes an innovative steel that features extremely pure alloying elements that are transformed into ultra high hard steel plate. This steel plate incorporates all of the lightweight performance benefits of a ceramic strike face, but without the brittleness associated with ceramic armor systems or their high procurement and lifecycle costs.
