Title LVBIED Barrier Project.
Publication Date Oct 2012
Media Count 6p
Personal Author I. Nayee
Abstract The project involves developing a system which can be employed in theatre during current operations. The plan is to pursue three concurrent activities to provide vehicle arresting barrier solutions in the near, mid and far terms. The near term activity is designed to accelerate efforts which ARDEC is currently developing (M2 Vehicle Lightweight Arresting Device (VLAD) with Remote Deployment Device (RDD)). The mid term path indicates the evaluation of other off-the-shelf products alone, in combination with the nets, or in combination with each other. The far term plan is to develop a team that will look at new design concepts and test them to meet the need to stop heavy vehicles. The Artillery Design Team, Indirect Fire Division, W&T, WSEC is developing The LVBIED Barrier Project which addresses the capability gap of arresting a large vehicle born improvised explosive device traveling through an entry point.
