Southampton based enclosure specialist Verotec has been selected by Lockheed Martin to provide custom 19in 6U 600mm deep rack cases to house part of the ISAR system in the AJAX next generation armoured fighting vehicles developed for the UK Army.
Verotec’s commercial director Tim Armstrong said: “Two of Verotec’s strengths are its library of standard products and its extensive design and modification capabilities that enable modified prototypes to be produced at short lead times. Our core products are field proven in many different operating environments, so we build on this experience to produce variants for specific applications.”
Verotec is supplying nine versions of the extended 600mm rack cases, with full earth bonding, steel engraved front panels, custom chassis trays and heavy duty bar handles. The ruggedised rack cases are designed to withstand the high levels of shock and vibration that will be found in the tracked vehicles.
The AJAX programme – previously known as Scout Specialist Vehicle – is a General Dynamics UK project and part of the British Army’s deployable Intelligence, Surveillance, Target Acquisition and Reconnaissance capability. Lockheed Martin UK has been awarded a $ 1billion contract to deliver 245 technology leading turrets.
