Morgan Extends Bomb Disposal Suit Range with Cutting Edge Silverback 3020 Elite Search Suit


The Silverback 3020 Elite incorporates a wealth of materials technology, cutting-edge developments and world-leading garment engineering. The suit has been designed for extended wear, offering high protection while maintaining outstanding flexibility, making it ideal for use in search and bomb disposal missions in a high-threat environment. It provides high levels of protection from blast, low-speed impact, fragment penetration and flame immersion, and features an integrated spine protector to mitigate the effects of blunt trauma.

Improved operational flexibility is delivered through the integration of armour pouches and ancillary attachments, enabling greater integration with multidisciplinary teams. Scalable armour, through the utilisation of Morgan's ultra-lightweight LWB III+ or LWA IV+ plates, can be attached to the front and back of the Silverback 3020 Elite, allowing the user to work in breaching and protection roles in addition to search and render-safe tasks. The Silverback 3020 Elite suit comprises a lightweight jacket and trousers which, along with the suit's integrated cooling system and lightweight helmet, are designed to maximise flexibility, manoeuvrability and comfort. Wearers can climb, crawl and crouch with ease, without compromising protection levels.

Duncan Eldridge, President of Morgan’s Composites and Defence Systems business, said: “The development of the Silverback 3020 Elite search suit represents a step change in bomb disposal suit technology; the addition of scalable, interchangeable armour systems offers significant benefit to the user as the suit can now be adapted to the threat level. We are delighted to support EOD (Explosive Ordnance Disposal) search teams across the world through the development of class-leading, high-protection, highly flexible bomb disposal suits.”

The Silverback 3020 Elite is the latest in a range of high-performance defence systems from Morgan, offering outstanding protection at the lowest weight. The range includes the Lightweight Armoured Soldier Architecture (LASA) personal protection portfolio, Silverback bomb disposal suits, CAMAC® platform armour and armoured vehicle systems.
