Rio de Janeiro, 14 April 2015 – ST Kinetics, the land systems arm of ST Engineering, is showcasing a range of proven defence solutions at LAAD Defence & Security (LAAD) 2015.
Speaking on the solutions showcased at LAAD 2015, Mr Patrick Choy, ST Kinetics’ Chief Marketing Officer, and who also heads International Marketing for the ST Engineering group said, “Many of ST Kinetics’ solutions today have been tested and proven internationally. We have benchmarked our products to rigorous standards through the international programmes we had participated in and this puts us in a good position to offer quality solutions tailored to our customers’ requirements.”
Proven Mobility Upgrades
Enhancing the mobility performance of aged armoured platforms, ST Kinetics’ family of InfiniDrive™ HMX Infinitely Variable Transmissions offer significant drivetrain upgrades to armoured vehicles and engine ratings across a wide range of classes. The InfiniDrive™ HMX3000 Transmission, for example, is designed for tracked vehicles up to 30 tonnes and engine ratings of up to 800HP. Currently selected for the US Marine Corps’ AAV upgrade programme as part of SAIC upgrade solutions, the HMX3000 transmission delivers high power density in a lightweight design. ST Kinetics’ InfiniDrive™ HMX Infinitely Variable Transmissions are ideal transmissions to enhance the mobility of armoured platforms, including the M113, AAV and other tracked and wheeled platforms.
Proven Firepower Upgrades
ST Kinetics’ 120mm Super Rapid Advanced Mortar System (SRAMS) is an automatic 120mm mortar delivery system that had been designed from the ground up to achieve a high rate of fire and ease of integration onto wheeled or light tracked platforms. The 120mm SRAMS is able to achieve a high sustained rate of fire at 10 rounds per minute, while only requiring a lean crew of three men to operate it. ST Kinetics has already successfully delivered the 120mm SRAMS, with a wheeled platform-mounted version already tested and proven in the field.
