Q&A released with JPEO CBRND, US Army ahead of SMi’s Future Armoured Vehicles Survivability 2019

SMi reports: Interview released with Colonel Timothy Klenske Joint Program Executive Office for Chemical, Biological, Radiological and Nuclear Defense (JPEO-CBRND), US Army

In the lead up to Future Armoured Vehicles Survivability 2019 taking place between the 12th and 14th November 2019, in London, SMi group caught up with Colonel Timothy Klenske, JPEO-CBRND, US Army, to discuss the upcoming event as well as the current developments and challenges within the field.

View sample of the interview below:

SMi Group: Do you see the systems that your office is developing, working closely with other survivability systems for armoured vehicles?

Colonel Klenske: "Yes. There are several JPEO-CBRND systems that integrate well with other survivability systems. One example is the integration of obscuration with laser beam rider defeat systems. By launching an obscuration cloud between the armored platform and the incoming laser beam rider, the missile loses it signal and crashes to the ground. Additionally, JPEO-CBRND and our partners are developing new contamination mitigation systems to more quickly decontaminate vehicles and regenerate combat power more quickly. Other examples include air-launched CBRN detectors and identifiers and lighter personal protective gear, both of which enable Integrated Layered Defense (ILD) and Integrated Early Warning (IEW) to increase survivability of personnel and vehicles."
