Armored Passenger Vehicle Guidelines
Evaluating armored passenger vehicles (APVs) is difficult for procurement personnel because of the lack of reliable performance standards for APVs. Parallel project teams from Idaho National Laboratory, QinetiQ, General Testing Laboratories, and Applied Research Associates developed guidelines prescribing the performance criteria for APVs that can be used by vendors and procurement personnel. These guidelines cover several key areas, including ballistic protection, blast protection, optical performance of transparent armor, and overall performance of APVs.
