Rheinmetall’s Argus soldier system sets the standard for technological compatibility and crystal-clear situational awareness

Rheinmetall is ushering in a new era of heightened battlefield awareness with the Argus soldier system, a portable communication unit that is as lightweight as it is rugged. The system, worn by individual soldiers on the ground, ensures connectivity between them, platoon-level combat units, and commanders using a central network. Its compatibility with both LTE networks and Android devices makes it extremely adaptable and versatile in diverse field situations.

A highly adaptable technology
Rheinmetall Argus soldier system is network-agnostic, resulting in increased uptime and the ability to integrate with any modern military radio. Specifically, its ability to connect to LTE networks allows for a much larger communication radius: LTE service is available all over the world and lets users exchange information over an extremely broad range, overcoming the strict geographical limitations of traditional radio.

Because Argus can also be used on any Android device, this technology is essentially universal: clients are no longer limited to TUIs to get the job done. It also creates the opportunity for easy integration in other sectors, such as security.

For the time being, Argus‘ main focus is to provide platoon-level soldiers with the most effective tool possible for receiving mission-critical operational information. However, its forward-looking open architecture framework means that it will be able to run new applications in future; current add-ons include laser rangefinders, shot detectors, GPS, UGVs, UAVs, counter-UAV systems, etc.

When it comes to unmanned ground vehicles (UGV), Argus can easily indicate route planning or waypoint identification. It can also task the UGV to convert to follow-me or convoy mode. Moreover, its access to live video feeds from integrated cameras ensures enhanced visualization on the ground.

Unparalleled situational awareness
When time is of the essence and precision can save lives, the Argus soldier system is the key to streamlined decision-making and crystal-clear situational awareness. Argus‘ ability to paint a real-time picture of friendly and enemy positions, obstacles, and essential coordinates can help advance operations, diminish loss of life, and expedite the decision-making process like never before.

This ultra-portable technology allows for tactical information to be shared in real time. The live map display also pinpoints terrain obstacles and similar potential hazards. With all of this data disseminated via a common network and laid out clearly on the display, the entire chain of command can access the exact same information. At any point, this data can be updated as new information is acquired.

Rheinmetall Hybrid Protection Module combines passive and active protection technologies

At IDEX 2019 Rheinmetall is presenting its Hybrid Protection Module for the first time. Combining active and passive protection technology, it is primarily designed to be mounted on the sides of tracked and wheeled tactical vehicles.

The new Hybrid Protection Modules allow for an integrative approach: passive protection components simultaneously serve as interface and shield for the components of the active protection system ADS. Conversely, the ADS components comprise ballistic functions and characteristics. The specially harmonized bulkhead design features two layers. The first one, the external protection layer, protects the ADS components against shell fragments, small arms fire and other sources of mechanical stress. The ADS countermeasure component is embedded in the first protection plate from the outside. The deflector of the countermeasure serves simultaneously as part of the first layer of passive protection. The sensors of the system are contained in the space in between.

In standalone mode, the complete module already offers additional ballistic protection that significantly enhances the basic integrity of the vehicle hull. The integrated ADS standoff protection system is effective against rocket-propelled grenades and antitank guided missiles.

The prime advantage of this new possibility for ADS integration into tactical vehicles is its compact size: the hybrid module is less than 150 mm in height. Moreover, it is relatively simple to install and can be mounted onto existing vehicles. The module thus offers an easy-to-implement way of adding active protection technology to a platform. The new modules can replace existing add-on passive protection elements either completely or in part. Furthermore, the modules can be mounted to vehicles in preparation for a specific mission.

Thanks to variable material configurations, Hybrid Protection Modules can be readily adapted to be meet individual customer requirements. Rheinmetall has already fabricated various prototype modules, successfully conducting rigorous ballistic trials of variously configured modules with rocket-propelled grenades and antitank guided missiles.

At IDEX 2019, Rheinmetall Protection Systems Gulf (RPSG) will also be introducing itself. Operating in Sharjah in the United Arab Emirates since September 2017, the company is a subsidiary of Rheinmetall Ballistic Protection. RPSG develops and produces ballistic protection elements. Its product range extends from protection level NIJ IIIA right through to STANAG 4569 Level 4.

Successful rehabilitation of trans-o-flex


  • In 2018, for the first time in ten years, the company generates a profit
  • Increase in turnover to € 468 million

In 2018, for the first time in ten years, the trans-o-flex logistics group was able to generate a profit. "After having reached the break-even point in 2017, this result definitely shows that the rehabilitation of the company has been successful”, says Wolfgang P. Albeck, CEO of trans-o-flex. Traditionally, the company does not provide any information on the amount of profit.

For Albeck, the successful turnaround is “clear proof that our strategy of focusing on 100 percent quality has paid off.” For a logistic company, service quality is even more important than cost optimisation. “Together with efficiency, reliability is the highest value we can offer our customers.” In 2018, in addition to its focus on quality, trans-o-flex also continued its strategy of streamlining shipments, which began two years ago. “We have again disposed of shipments that do not fit into our structure or that were unprofitable”, explains Albeck. Despite streamlining shipments, the company’s turnover increased to 468 million euros. “This also reflects the consistent further development of our company into an express service provider, because the number of shipments we deliver on a particular day or to a time selected by the customer has increased both in relation to the total volume of all shipments and in absolute terms.”

In 2019, trans-o-flex intends to continue this growth course. The budget agreed upon with the shareholders provides for an investment volume of € 35 million for the current year. “We will invest this money primarily in the acquisition of new vehicles, IT and sorting technology. In addition to this, locations will be renewed and expanded”, explains Albeck. In 2018, trans-o-flex had a workforce of 2,047 employees, 0.6 % less than in the previous year. The number is expected to rise slightly in 2019. “We will be hiring additional staff, mainly in Sales and Customer Service.”

A wide range of products delivered at speed

LAPP has added several new cables and system products to its range of products for the rail sector. The global market leader for integrated connection solutions is currently shaking up the industry with its incredible new logistics set-up. Other providers are only able to produce to order and demand high minimum order quantities. By contrast, LAPP is able to deliver any amount – even small packages – off the shelf. The result is a drastic shortening of delivery times around the world, from up to three months to less than a week. This helps users to reduce inventories and respond to new requirements even faster. Most of the new cables are now also available off the shelf. The following items are new to the range:

  • ÖLFLEX CLASSIC 110H SF: This control cable is the workhorse of the LAPP portfolio. After being used successfully in factories in countless variants, the cable is now also available for trains. Here, it can be used to power doors, lighting or air conditioning systems. With its Class 6 conductors, the new variant is extremely flexible, allowing for installation in tight spaces. Further variants include the shielded ÖLFLEX CLASSIC 115 CH SF and ÖLFLEX CLASSIC 115 CH SF (TP). The latter features a twisted-pair design that makes it suitable for entertainment systems or transferring data to a driver’s control panel. Just like all of LAPP’s cables for the rail industry, the new products meet the requirements for fire protection in rail vehicles as per EN 45545-2.
  • ÖLFLEX TRAIN HT150: This single-core silicon cable is designed for use at high temperatures and can withstand up to 150°C. Possible applications include engines or power converters. The cable is rated at Hazard Level 3, the highest hazard level for fire protection. It is also certified to EN 50382-2 for the construction of silicone cables. It is available in cross-sections of 1.5 mm2 to 400 mm2 with 1.8 kV or 3.6 kV. It features a two-layer sheath with silicone insulation, and is also available with a single-layer sheath and Class 6 conductors. This makes it flexible and suitable for installation in positions with tight bending radii.
  • ÖLFLEX TRAIN 340 and ÖLFLEX TRAIN 345C: LAPP has significantly expanded its tried-and-tested range of power and control cables to meet the high demands of the rail sector in line with EN 50264-3-2. These cables are now available in cross-sections of 0.5 mm2 to 50 mm2 and with between two and 40 cores. They are suitable for various purposes, including outdoor installation, as their black sheath resists UV light. These products also withstand high temperatures, oil and fuel, and are certified to EN 45545-2.

Power and control cables are not the only products LAPP sells to the rail industry. The company also offers the complete range of data connection technology and is constantly expanding its range of connectors and system products, such as cable glands, cable inlets and cable protection systems as well as labelling solutions and tools.

  • Also new to the range and approved in line with DIN EN 45545-2 is the SKINTOP ST-HF-M in black with increased UV resistance for outdoor use. In addition to vibration protection, optimum strain relief and oil resistance, which all result from the tried-and-tested high functional safety, the plastic glands in the SKINTOP ST-HF-M series are approved for use in the rail industry in line with EN 45545-2 (Hazard Level 3). All materials, including the seals, are also 100% halogen-free. In addition to the light grey design for interior applications, there is now a black version with improved UV resistance for outdoor use.
  • The brass glands in the SKINTOP MS-HF-M series fulfil the strictest requirements in line with EN 45545-2 (Hazard Level 3) and EN 45545-3 (E30 fire resistance).
  • They are available with a shield contact spring as SKINTOP MS-HF-M SC or with a brush insert as SKINTOP MS-HF-M BRUSH in EMC applications for shielded ÖLFLEX TRAIN cables.
  • SKINTOP MS-HF-M GRIP is highly suitable where extreme strain relief is also required – the double clamp ensures additional centred strain relief and improved bending protection.

Numerous EPIC rectangular connectors are also suitable and approved for the special requirements of the rail industry.

  • The EPIC MH modular connector system, for example, also fulfils EN 45545-2 requirements, is highly resistant and is very quick to assemble. The fixed frame enables one module after the other to be simply locked in place, so EPIC MH is pluggable, even with standard products on the market. When connecting cables in the EPIC MH system, LAPP relies on crimp contacts, which are highly vibration-proof and thus offer a very important advantage for the rail industry in comparison to screwed contacts. Another special feature of the EPIC MH is the gigabit module for connecting Etherline Cat. 7 cables to facilitate ultra-high-speed data transmission in modern trains.
