At Enforce Tac 2018
Rheinmetall is showcasing equipment for armed forces and law enforcement
Enforce Tac takes place in Nürnberg on 7-8 March 2018. Rheinmetall will be on hand again at this internationally renowned show for armed forces and law enforcement organizations, displaying part of its extensive portfolio of products for military and security applications.
Special effects technology
Rheinmetall offers a comprehensive array of pyrotechnic products. When it comes to SWAT team-type operations, the Group’s portfolio of multi-bang grenades and improved-performance flash-bang grenades with bottom-top venting (BTV) technology offers the perfect solution. They are extremely safe to handle, highly precise and very reliable.
Rheinmetall has developed a wide assortment of flares for signalling and for illuminating the area of operations at night. These include the handheld Mithras, with ranges of 300, 600 and 1,000 metres, with versions available for the visible and infrared sector.
As a leading maker of munitions, Rheinmetall’s extensive portfolio of 40mm x 46 products covers multiple operational scenarios. These range from distraction rounds and marking charges to non-lethal impulse ammunition and highly effective special solutions for methods of entry (MOE) such as the new Multi Purpose Blast Grenade (40mm x 46 HEBE 14 SO).
The Group’s fire control and aiming devices make Rheinmetall a one-stop shop for 40mm system technology.
Rheinmetall’s line of VERHA (Versatile Rheinmetall Armour) products lends itself to multiple applications, including maritime, land and air platforms as well as protective vest components. During the course of several contracts, Rheinmetall has already supplied various types of protective systems to customers in the civil and military sectors as well as law enforcement. Examples here include the partial armouring of ships, carbon fibre protection components for luxury limousines, hard ballistic inserts for bullet-resistant vests, and quick-mounting add-on protective elements for armouring helicopter cockpits.
In addition, Rheinmetall’s innovative Sensing Armour technology offers a reliable means of servicing and inspecting hard ballistic protective vest inserts. The core feature of this technology is a sensor embedded in the inserts. This enables fast and easy detection of damage to inserts which otherwise appear to be intact – and without the need for expensive X-ray inspections.
Laser light modules
Rheinmetall has recently added two more modular components to its “Vario-Ray” family of laser light modules. The VarioRay LowProfile laser module and the separate “Lumenator” weapon lamp with 700-lumen illumination power provide the user with even greater tactical flexibility – despite their extremely small dimensions. The new products are key components for boosting the operational effectiveness of modern small arms. Moreover, visitors to the Rheinmetall stand at Enforce Tac 2018 can learn about other members of the Vario-Ray family as well as the Group’s Multi-Ray 500 and Multi-Ray 800 40mm-fire control aiming devices. Also on display is the TAC-Ray Ballistic sniper build-on module with integrated ballistic computer.
