Polaris TerrainArmor Non-Pneumatic Tires Finalist for Tire Technology of the Year by Tire Technology International — Press Release

Minneapolis, February 20, 2014 – Polaris Industries Inc. (NYSE: PII) today announced the company’s TerrainArmor™ Non-Pneumatic Tire (NPT) was a finalist for Tire Technology of the Year by Tire Technology International.

“Polaris would like to thank Tire Technology International for recognizing TerrainArmor tires as part of their short list for Technology of the Year,’” said Rich Haddad, general manager of Polaris Defense. “Polaris is the first manufacturer to bring NPT technology to the off-road consumer and defense markets, and we feel the technology will make a great impact on the future of our industry.”

In 2013, Polaris Defense started offering TerrainArmor tires as an option for its military vehicles. This breakthrough technology has proven to be beneficial with military, emergency response and disaster relief teams.

“One of our challenges is getting to the point of need where people are, and usually debris stops us from doing that,” said Kevin Smith of the Salvation Army. “Specifically in the Oklahoma City tornado disaster, the TerrainArmor tires allowed us to reach people who were not served for days.”

Beyond having no flats, TerrainArmor tires offer a better center-of-gravity, improved cornering due to less pushing and the capability for the tires to be designed for a diverse range of applications.

The Tire Technology International Awards for Innovation and Excellence were presented in Cologne, Germany, on February 11.

Polaris Defense Survivability Solutions Headline AUSA Display — Press Release

Advanced armor and non-pneumatic tires address protection and mobility requirements

MINNEAPOLIS (Oct. 22, 2012) — Polaris Defense, a division of Polaris Industries Inc. (NYSE: PII), is showcasing two advanced vehicle technologies, designed to address the U.S. military’s need for increased vehicle survivability, at the AUSA 2012 Annual Meeting & Exposition. A lightweight, advanced armor solution and non-pneumatic tires (NPT) are on display in Polaris Defense booth #3913 through Wednesday at the Washington Convention Center, Washington, D.C.

“We take our role as a defense provider very seriously and as a result have identified two critical survivability challenges, invested in the development of effective countermeasures and are delivering them to the customer,” said Richard Haddad, Polaris Defense General Manager. “We can meet the military’s need for cost-effective, robust solutions by providing lightweight, advanced armor technology and non-pneumatic tires that will help increase the survivability and prolong the life of the U.S. Military’s expansive tactical wheeled vehicle fleet.”

Perfecting the Iron Triangle: Advanced Armor

Polaris Defense, partnered with M9 Defense, has developed a unique lightweight armor technology for the U.S. military. This is showcased as a concept demonstrator HMMWV at AUSA. While displayed on a light tactical vehicle, the armor is applicable to any tactical wheeled vehicle or combat vehicle platform. This new armor is produced with certified military materials using a proprietary ballistic resistant formulation and manufacturing process and it has the lowest pounds per square foot of any armor available in today’s market. The steel-hybrid composite armor, in conjunction with a high-speed production process, allows the Polaris/M9 team to form this cutting-edge armor into capsules and other ballistic vehicle components at speeds comparable to that of sheet metal processing, greatly reducing the overall cost.

“This armor redefines the iron triangle by restoring vehicle payloads, improving ballistic protection and upgrading vehicle performance and mobility,” said Haddad.

Reinventing the Wheel: Non-Pneumatic Tires

The acquisition of Resilient Technologies™ enables Polaris Defense to harness its non-pneumatic, never-flat tire technology towards increasing the survivability and handling of both currently fielded and future vehicles, either as a block upgrade or an integrated component. The NPT is composed of a central polymeric web surrounded by a rubber tread band which allows continuous operation, even if up to 30 percent of the web is damaged.

“We have tested our NPTs over 5,000 miles with a .50 caliber bullet hole and the performance exceeded expectations,” said Haddad. “This capability gives our troops an edge when operating in rugged terrain that destroys tires by eliminating the mission impact associated with flats.”

“Advanced armor and NPT technologies significantly broaden the capability of Polaris Defense platforms and leverage the company’s strength in product innovation and vehicle development,” said Haddad, “ensuring that Polaris Defense remains the leader in the ultra-light military vehicle market.”

U.S. Army National Guard Buys Off Road Vehicles From Polaris

One of the primary missions of the United States Army National Guard (ARNG) is to respond to natural disasters in the fifty states. These include hurricanes, tornadoes and earthquakes as well as large fires and even blizzards. While much of their standard military equipment may be used for these types of operations they also buy some separate hardware to support those kind of missions. The UH-72A Lakota aircraft is designed to operate primarily in the U.S. and its territories for example and not combat situations.

The ARNG announced that they had given Polaris a contract worth over $2 million to buy four wheel drive off road vehicles to support their disaster relief in the U.S. These 800 trucks will also have the capability to support overseas operations if required. The purchase of these commercially available vehicles also illustrates how the U.S. military is showing some imagination in how the acquire equipment and probably saving the tax payer some money as well.
