Editorial Foreword

Armoured vehicles have traditionally been discussed as a choice between wheeled or tracked and as trade-offs in the iron triangle of mobility, lethality and survivability. More people adds more armour which equals greater weight, reduces strategic airlift mobility, reduces speed both to and on the battlefield. You know the drill. A lot of attention is rightly given to these trade-offs, and much research is put in to novel low technology readiness level (TRL) armour systems, both active and passive. More recently, we have looked through the lens of the steel hexagon – or ‘Capability Matrix’ - of mobility, lethality, survivability, autonomy, adaptability, and connectivity, which further complicates the trade-offs involved.

What often gets less attention are the wide array of interior vehicle subsystems that work to keep the solider safe and enhance survivability.

This Whitepaper shines some light on these vital internal survivability features with a focus on the lightweight and cost-effective. Recognising that anything put on a military platform is a trade-off in terms of space and weight, this paper will detail the systems involve, the difference they can make and why they have earned their place on any modern armoured vehicle.
