Barbadian Super Light Weight Roller
Barbadian Super Light Weight Roller (Barbadian) is designed to help protect lighter Mine Resistant and Ambush Protected (MRAP) vehicles from the effects of Victim Operated IEDs (VOIEDS) over the track width of the vehicle.
- Provides track width vehicle protection
- Light weight
- Minimal effect on vehicle mobility and manoeuvrability
- Roller wheels follow ground contours providing constant ground contact
- Puncture proof tyres
- Rapidly repairable
- A robust and compact system which requires little maintenance
To cover the ground where the vehicle will run, the whole frame of the roller can be hydraulically moved left or right as the vehicle turns.
The degree of movement is controlled by inputs from the driver.
The steering system is hydraulically controlled.
Hydraulic power is provided by an in-built electrohydraulic power system.
Is controlled from a Roller Control Unit (RCU) mounted within easy reach of the vehicle driver.
Barbadian is attached to a light weight MRAP vehicle by a simple interface bracket that enables rapid connection to the vehicle. No modifications are required.
