VEHICLES AND SECURITY
A basic definition of security vehicles will be presented, the focus
will be on the role armor plays in vehicle security. The performance of
your vehicles will be scientifically measured. These findings will be
discussed with the students and a report on each vehicle will be
delivered to the client. The performance characteristics of your
vehicles will be factored into the hands on training portion of the
OF A VEHICLE EMERGENCY
Students will gain an understanding of how armor affects vehicle
emergencies, with this knowledge they will be better equipped to develop
pro-active and reactive countermeasures to defend against vehicle
violence. We will also cover the affect of various rounds on vehicle
armor, and how armor affects performance of your vehicles.
The relationship of these two is examined. Particular attention is paid
to affect that armored glass has on night vision and peripheral vision,
their effects on driving, and what drivers can do to compensate.
BRAKING AND STEERING RELATIONSHIP
Braking and steering constitute one of the most critical relationships
in driving. Armor effects vehicle performance - braking accelerating and
emergency maneuver capabilities are all affected by armor. We will
outline these changes and what can be done to control them.
Caring for the vehicle will increase the life of the vehicle. We will
provide an in depth discussion of how armor affects vehicle maintenance.
Basics such as tire pressure, shock absorbers, cleaning the armored
glass will be carefully reviewed with the students. If not supplied by
the manufacture we will produce a vehicle maintenance manual.
AGAINST ROADSIDE BOMBS
What can be done to decrease the possibility of a being a victim of a
roadside bomb? For this type of an attempt to be successful certain
environmental factors must be in place. There are defensive measures
that can be put into place that lower the risk of a roadside bomb. We
will discuss how to select the safest route between destinations, how to
recognize dangerous areas and develop a danger zone log, and to locate
safe havens that can be used in the event of an emergency.
This is the first step in learning the affect of armor on a vehicle.
This exercise teaches drivers how to control the forces acting on the
vehicle, and how armor influences the steering function.
AND TURNING EXERCISE
In most acts of vehicle violence the driver cannot control the car under
heavy braking. This is amplified with the addition of armor. This
exercise will show drivers how armor increase braking distance, and how
to manage that change.
Armor and Center of Gravity height have a profound affect on emergency
maneuvers. This exercise provides the student with the opportunity to
make split second decisions and to quickly maneuver around simulated
road hazards. It allows the student to personally participate in and
understand the factors involved in evasive maneuvers in an armored
As with the evasive maneuver armor and center of gravity height have a
profound affect on driving in reverse. This exercise provides the
students with the opportunity to experience how to properly drive a
vehicle in reverse. There is a right way and a wrong way to drive in
reverse and this exercise establishes a lasting distinction between the
Students will drive through various exercises with the tires at zero
tire pressure. The objective is to familiarize the student with run flat
TO A VEHICLE VIOLENCE
Students will practice driving into simulated vehicle attacks. Students
will be trained to use the skills taught from previous exercises to
remove themselves from a violent confrontation. They will learn to use
their armored vehicle to its maximum capability.
We will produce an Armored Car Operations Manual for each vehicle which
