Mobile Concepts

Purpose-Built Vehicles

Vehicles are always some of the most interesting products at POLICE-TREXPO and this show was no exception. Some of the more intriguing vehicles on display were the Purpose-Built designs by Mobile Concepts. Available in motorized and towable models, the Purpose-Built vehicles are adaptable to a wide variety of law enforcement applications, including mobile command centers, crime scene investigation, DUI enforcement, disaster response, terrorism response, and surveillance. The roofs are reinforced for equipment mounting and Mobile Concepts fits out each vehicle with electronics and secure storage to meet the needs of the customer.

 

North American Rescue

Field Trauma Kits

North American Rescue makes a wide variety of field medical kits for law enforcement. At POLICE-TREXPO East, the company displayed its Range Trauma Kit, Tactical Rapid Deployment Kit, and K9 Tactical Field Kit. Each kit includes items such as tourniquets, gloves, shears, gauze, antiseptics, all in an easy-to-carry 1,000-denier nylon pack. The rangemaster pack is red; the other packs are available in black, foliage, coyote, and digital camo. All of the packs feature MOLLE connectors.

 

Oshkosh Defense

Tactical Protector Vehicle

On the show floor and during range day, Oshkosh Defense showed its new Tactical Protector Vehicle (TPV). The TPV is built for urban operation. It's not as big as some SWAT vehicles, so it can move down city streets more easily and into tighter confines. Despite its minimal footprint, the TPV has space for four to eight fully equipped tactical officers, depending on seating configuration. Two distinct body styles of the TPV are available: the Transport model and the Utility model. Both are built on Ford F550 chassis with 325-horsepower turbocharged V-8 engines. Four-wheel drive is available. Buyers can specify NIJ-certified armor protection up to Level IV.

 

Patriot3

XPS-G2 Shield

Patriot3's XPS-G2 is a mobile tactical shield that's ideal for active shooter response and a variety of other applications. The shield has foldable side "wings" that not only provide side protection for users but also collapse to allow it to be used in the narrowest of passages. Fully extended, the wings can provide NIJ Level III protection for three operators working abreast. Once in position, the operators can quickly break the system into four handheld shield, giving them great flexibility in a fight. Options include gun ports and lights.

 

RUAG Ammotec

Copper-Matrix NTF Ammo

RUAG presented one of the most stunning demonstrations of any product at POLICE-TREXPO East during range day. To support a video that it had shown on the show floor, the company had one of its reps load a magazine full of frangible Copper-Matrix NTF ammo and blast away at a steel target from point-blank range. The completely non-toxic ammo is so frangible that shooters don't have to worry about back splatter. The ammo is formulated to disintegrate into small fragments upon impact with a hard steel surface.
