Plasan’s SandCat utility vehicle has returned to the show this year (External Stand E160) in its latest and most advanced form, outfitted as an observation platform and equipped with a thermal imaging system.
Mounted on the rear of the vehicle is a mast-mounted observation system that displays imagery at two side-facing operator stations in the rear cabin. In the front are driver and commander’s stations, the latter equipped with a tablet-style tactical situation display. Behind are two further seats, between which is a platform from which to operate a roof-mounted crew-served weapon. Connecting the vehicle systems is an advanced networked vetronics system.
SandCat features Plasan’s advanced lightweight composite armour that provides up to STANAG Level 3 ballistic protection without effect on either gross weight or performance.
The vehicle can be tailored for a diverse range of roles, from homeland security applications to special forces transport. Plasan (Hall 6, Stand B300) is also showcasing its extensive vehicle protection expertise.
