GC Shield for Defence Applications

Ballistic shields serve a key role in both offensive and defensive military operations by enhancing unit protection, establishing tactical advantages, and saving lives during high-risk engagements. They provide critical survivability from modern ballistic threats.

Vehicle Protection

Basic Protection On the Battlefield: The Critical Role of STANAG Level 1 Armor For Military Vehicles

While Level 1 does not protect against heavy weapons, it is suitable for transport and combat support vehicles that are not expected to face direct enemy fire. The armor adds useful security from fragmentation, small arms, and low-velocity projectiles that are prevalent battlefield threats. Overall, STANAG Level 1 armor provides a good minimum level of protection for logistics and support vehicles operating in rear areas away from heavy combat.

Enhancing Unit Protection

Employing ballistic shields enhances protection for military forces in the field. Handheld shields provide lightweight, mobile cover from enemy fire for infantry while still allowing return fire. They can swiftly create improvised fighting positions during assaults. Vehicle-mounted shields protect crews from close-range small arms ambushes yet maintain visibility for situational awareness. Overlapping and small slit viewing port shields give maximum coverage while allowing weapons operation. Balancing protection, mobility, and lethality is essential.

Shield utilization allows strategic advantage too. Overwatch positions, checkpoints, forward operating bases become possible by deploying shields as reliable ballistic barricades. Selective shield use preserves resources only for high threat areas rather than needing full armored coverage. Proper training ensures proper use. Ballistic shields thus deliver versatile, tailored defense to preserve lives during diverse military missions.

Masking Thermal Signatures

Masking thermal signatures provides important battlefield advantages for military personnel and vehicles. High temperature surfaces and hot exhausts from vehicles and aircraft have large thermal signatures that can easily be detected and targeted by modern heat seeker missiles and infrared tracking systems used by enemies.

By treating hotspots and exhausts with special high emissivity coatings and wrap, they better blend in with ambient temperatures and are harder to detect on thermal scanning devices. The cooled treated surfaces create lower thermal contrast to disguise their thermal signature. This camouflage effect helps to hide, obscure, and reduce detection range which gives vital extra reaction time and survivability to vehicles, aircrews, and troops against hostile infrared missile lock and targeting. Thermal signature reduction directly enhances military survivability and lethality.
