Weapon stations and optronics

TenCate Advanced Armor solutions for weapon stations and optronics are available to provide protection against both lead core and armor piercing ammunition, in accordance with NATO STANAG 4569 level 1-4 and specific customer requirements. 

TenCate Advanced Armor protection systems are lightweight solutions that only add a bare minimum of weight to the vehicle, thus ensuring only a minimal effect on maneuverability. Customized solutions that fit to existing ring mounts can be developed in close cooperation with the manufacturers of ring mounts, making it possible to provide users with a protection system tailored to individual needs, specified weight requirements and types of vehicles. The low weight of TenCate Advanced Armor protection systems ensure less load and dynamic impact on the vehicle, resulting in lower life cycle costs and greater load capacity.

Protection for mission critical components

TenCate weapon stations and optronics protection systems feature a high multi-hit capability that provide systems with outstanding degree of protection if the vehicle is hit by multiple projectiles and fragments. This ensures end-users with a high level of survivability for mission critical components. Weapon stations and optronics armour systems are already available for light vehicles, armored personnel carriers and main battle tanks. TenCate Advanced Armor systems are field-proven and currently fielded by several national forces.
