HAC design and manufacture tubular components for use in military applications such as:
Land Based Systems
HAC is part of the NLAW next generation light anti-tank weapon system team which includes SAAB Bofors Technology and Thales Air Defence Systems. We are also one of the founding members of the Northern Defence Industries (NDI).
NLAW entered production during 2006 has been operational since 2007. The NLAW combat weapon comprises an anti-tank missile sealed within a disposable launch tube. Although the main targets are MBTs and Light Armoured Fighting Vehicles (LAFVs) other targets such as troops in buildings and nonarmoured vehicles can also be defeated. Hardy Advanced Composites' expertise with carbon fibre tubes led to them being considered for this exciting project. They continue to develop their carbon fibre tube and composite tube technologies.
