Designed for elevated tactics and rescue operations, the MARS (Mobile Adjustable Ramp System) eliminates the need for ladders in most elevated tactical situations. With Patriot 3's MARS, operators and rescuers have the ability to enter a structure using multiple entry points at various elevations, resulting in safer more efficient rescues. The versatility of the MARS is enhanced by its wide array of ancillary equipment. This equipment helps optimize the MARS capabilities to the situation at hand. Features include a 15-foot long preimeter breach ramp for single or double perimeter breaching and bridging, an evactuation stairway which folds up for storage yet deployable in less than 30 seconds, an adjustable observer/sniper bench, ladder turret and an 8-foot or 12-foot long tactical ladder for addtional access capability.
