Pearson Engineering will display counter-IED, counter-mine, combat earth moving and route proving equipment on stand S8-221, providing the company’s largest ever presence at the event.
The company’s wide range of exhibits demonstrates Pearson Engineering’s capability to meet core combat engineer mission requirements, across all platforms. They include a full-width mine plough, designed for mine breaching activities, a straight obstacle blade for earth and obstacle clearance and a super lightweight roller, as recently supplied to the British Army to protect vehicles from the effects of victim-operated IEDs.
This year will also see the return of Pearson Engineering’s route opening and clearing capability ‘PEROCC’ to DSEI. The vehicle will be configured to illustrate the modularity offered by the vehicle and its ability to be optimised to meet combat engineer requirements.
PEROCC provides a single platform designed for the application of a suite of tools to the chassis, with the capability to detect explosive threats, defeat obstacles and proof routes at tempo whilst maintaining a high level of self-protection and self-reparability.
Pearson Engineering has also provided a variant of the company’s track width mine plough to BAE Systems for display on their Terrier engineer vehicle.
Following completion of a move to Armstrong Works in Newcastle upon Tyne, Pearson Engineering will also demonstrate ‘assured manufacturing’ services offered by the company, including repair and overhaul, armoured structure manufacture and testing.
Head of sales and business development Bryan Findlay said: "DSEI provides an excellent platform for Pearson Engineering to bring its battle proven combat engineer products to the defence community.
"By featuring our equipment, we demonstrate commitment to our existing customers and allow potential customers to ‘kick the tyres’, to see our threat defeating engineering capability first-hand. Our ability to also showcase our new facility at the event will undoubtedly support our diversification into providing manufacturing services to the defence industry too. We look forward to a busy event."
