DSEI 2019: Force Protection is the Rheinmetall Mission

From Vehicles to Air Defence and Training Solutions

At DSEI 2019 in London, 10-13 September, Rheinmetall will be showcasing a judicious selection of its extensive portfolio of solutions, demonstrating commitment to its adopted motto “Force Protection is Our Mission.”

The new independent UK-based joint venture for military vehicle design, manufacture and support, Rheinmetall BAE Systems Land (RBSL), will be exhibiting for the first time. The joint venture founded on 1, is headquartered in Telford in the West Midlands, will sustain around 450 jobs across the UK and is well positioned for future growth.

RBSL intends to play a major role in manufacturing the BOXER 8×8 for the British Army’s Mechanised Infantry Vehicle (MIV) requirement and other strategic combat vehicle programmes, while also providing support to the British Army’s in-service tactical vehicle fleets – among them the Modular Bridging System, which is RBSL’s proposed solution to the UK MOD’s Project Tyro.

A BOXER infantry group variant will be on display on the Rheinmetall stand at DSEI (S7-200). The company will also highlight its expertise in tactical combat vehicles upgrade programmes, including the demonstrator for the CHALLENGER 2 Life Extension Project (LEP).

Robotics are already changing the battlefield of the future: Rheinmetall’s unmanned MISSION MASTER vehicle can be adapted to a wide range of applications, thanks to its modular design. The CARGO, RESCUE and PROTECTION versions will be presented at the show.

As a leading supplier of soldier systems, sensors, effectors, networking and C4I systems, Rheinmetall sets extraordinary standards in the digitialisation of armed forces, continuing to widen its lead in the soldier system market with solutions such as the ARGUS New Generation and GLADIUS 2.0. At DSEI, Rheinmetall’s LANCE medium-calibre turret will be networked with the GLADIUS soldier system, using the cutting-edge TacNet command and control system.

The Group is allocating considerable space to its force protection solutions, which range from hard ballistic inserts for bullet-resistant vests to state-of-the-art standoff active protection systems for armoured vehicles. For the first time in Europe, Rheinmetall is showcasing its Hybrid Protection Module. Combining active and passive protection technology, this can be integrated into vehicles.

Rheinmetall’s comprehensive expertise in the air defence domain will also be on show in London, embodied in its innovative SKYNEX system. The specific configuration on display in London will feature the remotely-operated, network-capable Oerlikon Revolver Gun Mk3, bolstered by a SENTINEL interceptor drone.

Rheinmetall also ranks among the world’s foremost suppliers in the field of training and simulation, where it makes a crucial contribution to enhancing the operational effectiveness of numerous armed forces and law enforcement agencies. The company will showcase its OSIRIS software for command and staff training and operational research as well as its new ‘Total Ship Training’ system – an integrated simulation-based approach for training entire ships’ crews ashore.
