Exsel Design & Integration has a wide experience of ruggedising customer ballistic protection equipment to allow it to be used in hostile environments.


From a deep understanding of how to integrate equipment such as radios and Electronic Warfare systems onto mobile platforms, Exsel Design & Integration can provides a ruggedised Installation Kit to clients, that addresses power, data, ventilation and vibration.

Equipment ruggedisation can be provided packaged in off the shelf rapidly deployable transit/flight cases or bespoke to role fabricated case solutions.


Typical areas to be considered include the selection of anti-vibration mounts for the intended platform, which vary depending upon whether it is a land or maritime environment.

Other considerations are whether the platform may need to operate in a multi-role capacity, in which case the client equipment may need to be packaged in a way that allows it to be rapidly removed, rather than a permanent fixture. This design constraint must also be addressed with respect to cooling, where the way the system is used can impact the design of the air conditioning and airflow.
