Next Generation Advanced Bomb Suit (NGABS)

Advanced Bomb Suit (ABS)

Protects the Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) Soldier from threats associated with improvised explosive devices, including fragmentation, blast overpressure, impact, heat, and flame. The NGABS incorporates pistol and rifle protection along with increased fragmentation protection in the head and vital torso area, and improved situational awareness provided by a Modular Sensor Suite (MSS) and Heads-Up Display (HUD).

The NGABS provides Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) Soldiers with 360-degree ballistic protection. The modular, scalable, mission-tailorable design of NGABS reduces weight over the legacy system while offering increased mobility and survivability. Using the latest technology, the NGABS Heads Up Display (HUD) provides EOD Soldiers increased situational awareness to include enhancing the Soldier’s ability to conduct operations in no- and low-light conditions.
