The vehicle selected for the AMPS technology development is the ex-UK Army Snatch Land Rover 110 variant. This relatively light (4 ton) vehicle¬† gained a bad reputation as being very susceptible to mine/IED attacks in Iraq and Afghanistan and therefore provides an excellent case study to demonstrate the effectiveness of ABBSs’ Active Mine Protection System technology. The low vehicle weight provides little resistance to global acceleration effects, and the low ground clearance and very shallow V belly plate enhances both the penetration and global acceleration effects of anti-vehicle mines and IEDs.

The current development programme will demonstrate complete protection against significant anti-vehicle under-belly mine blast levels with tests carried out  the STANAG 4569 AEP55 standard, illustrating that even very light vehicles such as civilian SUVs or VIP cars can be fully protected against substantial AV mines.
