Bushmaster fitted with self protection adaptive roller kit
The SMR2 fitted PMV acts in a proofing or confirmatory role to provide an added level of protection to ensure that should there be an Improvised Explosive Device (IED) that has otherwise avoided detection, it would be detonated with reasonable safety when it comes in contact with the rollers.
The upgrades include energy-absorbing seats and stronger welding to further reduce the probability of lower limb and spinal injury occurring from an explosion.
The SMR2 rollers are capable of emergency release from the vehicle by the crew from within the vehicle, enabling rapid recovery from a blast site. In the event of a blast to the rollers, the HMEE as part of the system can assist in recovery and in repairing of the damaged route.
