Homeland security, protection of critical infrastructure and automobile amouring
Rheinmetall offers a wide range of high-effective active and passive protection solutions for internal security, civil defence missions as well as object protection.
The product range includes automotive object protection as well as effective protection of military and civil properties like forward operating bases, fighting positions and sensitive civil installations such as power plants.
Automotive object protection
Rheinmetall's customized versatile armour asset protection system can be adapted to the individual design of automobiles and the threat level in their particular area of operation. Rheinmetall uses state-of-the-art materials such as individually coated aramid, high-performance polyethylene and combinations of different ballistic materials. Virtually invisible and without affecting performance and handling, our automotive protection systems offer levels of protection in line with the most stringent international standards. Rheinmetall develops and manufactures protective systems for special vehicles produced by major OEMs such as Audi, BMW and Mercedes Benz. We also supply ballistic protection materials to retrofitting companies.
Protection of critical infrastructure
Protection of military and civil properties
With the help of high-performance concealment systems, threatened installations can completely vanish in a cloud of artificial smoke in a matter of seconds. This makes it impossible to aim a plane directly into the target, significantly reducing the probability of a direct hit. The multi-spectral cloud is impenetrable to optical systems, infrared sensors and radar.
Concealment system for the protection of sensitive installations
Rheinmetall has developed a concealment system based on smoke/obscurant technology that automatically activates when a threat is detected in the security zone of a protected asset, producing a dense wall of artificial fog. This makes an accurate, visually guided attack impossible, significantly reducing the risk of a direct hit. Moreover, the concealment system can be augmented with a GPS jamming/spoofing system to prevent a successful GPS-guided attack.
