BMI Defense Systems custom engineers gunner platforms that install in a variety of military or armored vehicles and adjusts to as many heights as needed. Our platforms are customized to meet any vehicle's requirements and may be mounted on the wall utilizing our rail system, the floor or on top of a seat.
The platforms also include Energy Attenuating (EA) technology. These energy-absorbing gunner platforms protect soldiers against spinal injuries from the destructive shock of an IED blast beneath the vehicle.
