DSEI 2015

Clearing the way [DSEI15, D4]

18 September 2015

Pearson Engineering (Stand S8-221) has its largest ever range of combat engineering equipment at DSEI 2015.

Equipment on show includes a Full Width Mine Plough, a Straight Obstacle Blade, a Super Light Weight Roller and the unique Pearson Engineering Route Opening and Clearing Capability (PEROCC) system.

The PEROCC has the capability not only to detect explosive threats but also to defeat obstacles and proof routes at tempo while maintaining a high level of self-protection and self-repairability.

For a high level of protection against mines and improvised explosive devices (IEDs), the floor of the cabin is of the double V-type. If required, a remote weapon station armed with a machine gun can be fitted for self-defence purposes.

For route clearing, the PEROCC is fitted with fullwidth heavy-effect countermine rollers at the front.

Installed on the right side of the vehicle is a fully articulated arm to provide the platform with an interrogation and manipulation capability for the inspection of suspicious objects. The arm can be fitted with a variety of attachments, including a ripper claw, a bucket, a grapple and even a ground-penetrating radar array.

In addition to undertaking production and development of its extensive range of counter IED, combat earth-moving and route proving equipment, Pearson Engineering’s business has been expanded to include repair and overhaul as well as armoured structure manufacture and testing.
