Business unit Rheinmetall Protection Systems GmbH (RPS)
For some 60 years, Rheinmetall AG has specialized in the development and production of components and systems for the protection of persons, vehicles, aircraft, ships and other assets. National and international customers expect one thing above all others: maximum protection and security.
In June 2019, Rheinmetall acquired IBD Deisenroth Engineering GmbH in Lohmar, Germany, and its national and international subsidiaries. Together with Rheinmetall Chempro GmbH and Rheinmetall Ballistic Protection GmbH, it is now part of the new Rheinmetall Protection Systems (RPS) business unit headquartered in Bonn (former Rheinmetall Active Protection GmbH). This means that Rheinmetall's protection system capabilities are efficiently pooled under one roof.
Rheinmetall thus has a unique overall protection portfolio and can offer 360-degree protection: products and services for light-, medium- and heavy-duty protection. This new market profile as a leading systems house for active and passive protection and soft-kill security solutions offers development and production from a single source. In addition, it is characterized by short decision paths and high cost efficiency.
RPS is an independent protection provider with a worldwide customer base and subsidiaries in Germany, Australia, Canada, Italy, France, the Netherlands, Turkey, Algeria and UAE. This global presence allows close customer proximity, local added value and tight local cooperation.
RPS's worldwide customers include national ministries and authorities as well as OEMs (Original Equipment Manufacturers/platform producers) of land vehicles, aircraft, and ships.
