Eurosatory 2014

Flexible armour (ES14E5)

20 June 2014

Shown for the first at Eurosatory is the HSF-Hybrid SlatFence, a new-generation lightweight and flexible steel and composite bar armour, by Israeli company Plasan (Hall 6, Stand B402).

HSF has been designed to protect against RPGs. Its flexible nature enables it to be rolled up for doors, hull openings and hatches to maintain maximum accessibility. It can also be used across windows and transparent surfaces, without causing vertigo or distracting the driver. Of note is its defeat mechanism, which uses conductive metal to create an electrical short circuit between warhead cones.
