More tests. More investment. More results.
Each year, our Centigon teams conduct hundreds of ballistic tests to understand exactly how different solutions perform against different threats. By constantly analyzing threats and hostile force tactics, we ensure suitable countermeasures are always ready. From transparent armor and aramid fibers to titanium, boro silicates and ceramics, Centigon leads the industry in materials research.
Centigon's full-vehicle testing includes certifications from independent laboratories such as QinetiQ (UK), Beschussamt Mellrichstadt (Germany), Beschussamt Ulm (Germany), and ETBS Bourges.
Our development team has access to the same 3D applications (CATIA) as the OEMs use, providing unparalleled fit and finish when integrating armored components. Other advanced technology, such as the Metris K-Scan MMD 3D scanner, helps cut development time significantly while improving product appearance and road stability.
With the largest research and development team in the industry, the Centigon Security Group can rapidly develop solutions to changing environments, including the continued threat of improvised explosive devices (IEDs).
Taking the Lead in Effective IED Response
Illustrating Centigon's response to emerging threats, our IE-Defense System™ is the world's first commercial vehicle armoring system that protects against attacks from Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs). Prior to 2003, the use of IEDs was a common occurrence, however, Centigon had been testing vehicles against similar devices for more than eight years. When this threat emerged as a prolific danger in Southwest Asia, we moved quickly to implement an entirely new dual threat armor system that would not only protect against an IED attack but could further withstand a follow-on attack from armor piercing rifle fire--a common occurrence in such attacks.
Confidence comes from knowing that a skilled research and development team is proactively addressing the threats of today and those postulated for tomorrow. By matching protection to threat levels, our solutions excel in the world's harshest conditions.
