Established in Canada in 2001, EODC was able to quickly respond to the demands of the Afghan theatre with the provision of protection solutions for the Canadian Forces.
One of the EODC specialties is the Modular Expandable Armour System (MEXAS), which is designed to enhance the maximum ballistic protection of existing vehicle types.
To reduce the visibility of the armoured vehicle, EODC has designed a system known as Advanced Modular Protection Signature Management (AMP-SM).
Should the EODC enhanced armoured vehicle still be penetrated, the last line of defence lies in the "Don't be killed" objective.
Former Colonel Harry Mohr is happy to show off the presentation that gave the contract to outfit the Coyote and Bison vehicles with armour to EODC.

Expecting to get the contract to toughen up the bellies of the land-based vehicles, EODC went ahead and designed a model for that need and was confident it could deliver the same number of units as quickly as it had done before.
