• Dual Extendable Ramps

  • Optional RDD Configuration

  • Medium/Heavy Duty Vehicles

MARS (Mobile Adjustable Ramp System) sets the world standard for elevated tactical entry and rescue systems. Its dual, side-by-side hydraulic ramps allow simultaneous elevated access at varying heights, providing an enormous advantage to police, military and anti-terror forces. The MARS has proven itself in many real-world police and military missions to include; emergency evacuations, dynamic entries and tubular assaults.

The MARS is adaptable to many non-armored and partially armored commercial vehicles as well as most OEM armored personnel carriers (APCs). Depending on the vehicle and configuration, the MARS can often be designed for easy removal when not in use. Each ramp can be fully deployed to a maximum height of 20 ft in 10 seconds.

Dual Extendable Hydraulic Ramps

The MARS features dual independently operated ramps that permit simultaneous, multi-story entry. Each ramp features an internally stowed extension allowing for maximum reach and vehicle front-end clearance. The MARS is capable of reaching max height with full extension in less than 10 seconds.

Rear Access Ladders

Two (2) ladders come standard with each ramp system. They are mounted to the rear of the MARS via stainless steel pins, allowing access to the ramp deck surface from the ground. When detached, gas springs lift the ladder out of the way to allow a larger area of clearance to the rear of the vehicle.

Heavy Duty Construction

The MARS is built primarily from aircraft grade aluminum, high strength steel and stainless steel fasteners. All aluminum components are anodized and all mild steel components are powder coated for superior corrosion and weathering resistance. The MARS ramp surface is constructed from slip resistant GripStrut Safety Grating that exceeds US Federal Spec RRG-1602A requirements.

Safety Railing System

The Safety Railing System is a standard feature on all available ETS ramps. The railing is designed to reduce user risk during operations. All safety railings are stainless steel with a sand blasted textured finish for enhanced grip qualities. The railings fold down or can be quickly removed to reduce overall system height for transport and low clearance needs.

System Removal Jacks

Each MARS system includes four (4) removal jacks that allow easy removal of the ramp system from the host vehicle. The RDD option provides an area under the bed for on board storage for the jacks.

*Optional

Multi-Angle Extension Ramp (MER)

The MER provides and additional 48" of linear deck surface to the end of each extension ramp. This offers the MARS ramps an 80" breaching capability. In addition, the MER can be pivoted to provide a semi-level surface throughout the entire motion of the MARS ramps. The MER is optional on the MARS only.

RDD FEATURES:

Saddle Box

The Saddle Box is a large equipment storage enclosure that can house various MARS components such as the Side Assault System (SAS) and the Fast Assault Suspension Tower (FAST). The Saddle Box is customizable upon request.

Rear Articulating Stairway (RAS)

The RAS transforms the rear staging area into a high-speed access route for evacuation and assault purposes to and from the main ramp surface. 

Rear Tactical Step

This two-tier staircase allows for easier access into the Crew Seating Area, Rear Articulating Stairway (RAS) and Rear Access Ladders. Each step is constructed using Grip Strut Safety Grating for sure footing.

Crew Area Seating and Storage

Two (2) benches increase seating capacity for up to eight (8) additional persons to ride beneath the rear deck. Underneath these benches are four (4) lockable enclosures for extra storage of gear and equipment.
