PAS 300:2015 Civilian armoured vehicle – Test methods for ballistic and blast protection
PAS 300:2015 describes test methods for assessing the ballistic and blast performance of civilian armoured vehicles.
It defines test levels for ballistic impact (including handgun, shotgun and rifle) and blast resistance for side blast, under vehicle blast and roof blast. As part of the ballistic test it also includes fragment simulating projectile tests.
The four test methods described by this PAS are based on the work by the Vehicle Security Advisory Group (VSAG) and are designed to meet the needs of both the European and international markets.
Who is it for?
PAS300:2015 is intended for the use of test houses who carry out armour vehicle ballistic and blast testing and buyers and suppliers of such vehicles. It will also be helpful to manufacturers who need to obtain a certified pass for their armoured vehicles.
