Explosive Ordnance Disposal

Explosive Ordnance Disposal

Marshall has won significant contracts to develop and deliver a number of systems designed to support the management of unexploded ordnance. The satisfaction of requirements in this area is a complex programme challenge and requires a broad skillset to ensure time, cost and quality are met.

We have a long history of modifying vehicles to provide an explosive ordnance disposal (EOD) capability, and have consistently met or exceeded very specific requirements to align with the deployment of national homeland security forces. The designs meet the generic requirement of EOD duties in high threat environments in support of security forces whether military or civilian personnel.

We are well versed in selecting the most appropriate vehicles to meet specific drive configuration needs including travelling on any road surface as well as good off-road performance.

Our designs incorporate the installation of protection against ballistic (kinetic) and blast threats, and solutions to reduce secondary hazards to crew from Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs). The protection solution addresses both the crew cabin (cockpit) and working area in the shelter. The internal shelter design is optimised to minimise secondary explosions and fire from fuel, ammunition and explosives. The design meets the detailed relevant STANAG levels.

Marshall is currently engaged by the UK MoD to deliver the new generation of EOD vehicles to the British Army--we are extraordinarily proud and excited to be leading this. The new EOD and electronic countermeasure (ECM) vehicles will be based throughout the UK, Northern Ireland, Cyprus, and Gibraltar. In total, eight vehicle variants will be produced to cover all operational situations.

The specialist vehicles will enhance the British Army’s capability incorporating the latest technologies onto a more reliable vehicle platform.

The vehicle is the final addition to the MoD’s GASKET 3 fleet programme, part of a £60 million project that includes a range of 300 new vehicles from first response vehicles to a new 4x4 medium scale vehicle. The MoD contract is focused on the development, prototyping, testing, and production of 120 vehicles to replace its aging Wedgewood MoD vehicle fleet.
