Temsa R&D and Technology center have developed production methods for advanced composite armoured panels. Ballistic tests haven been performed on panels made of different fiber and matrix systems and ceramic shielding in accredited institutions for certifications. These developments have led to a number of lightweight armour protection solutions. These solutions, together with the vast experience of TEMSA GLOBAL in the automotive business, resulted in the protective modular body of TEMAS R&D's Gekko concept Vehicle. GEKKO Multi-Purpose Composite Vehicle, the first phase of which will be completed in the first quarter of 2010, will have full body lightweight composite armour. The vehicle is expected to have an impact with its agility under asymmetric threats, harsh environmental conditions and with its add-on armours for higher threat levels which are planned to be installed in the second phase of development.
