Defense systems

​At Ventura Defense we place our clients and their needs as our top priority. We work on systems that improve operational capabilities, and our designs focus on providing comfort and the best operational conditions possible for our troops.
Our greatest pride is to be able to see our products serving our soldiers and defending the interests of U.S. and our allies in the world. Our systems go through testing and validation processes to obtain the certifications that assure us compliance with the most demanding regulations.

Our expertise

​At Ventura Defense we specialize in high mobility systems. From our perspective, the concept of fielded units has evolved towards a greater number of lighter units, with high mobility and higher capabilities. We believe that new asymmetric and hybrid scenarios require self-supporting systems as the main alternative to provide support to own units.

  • The greater dispersion and geographic complexity in a field with multiple actors require direct support from infantry units themselves; mortars regain key importance. 
  • Coordinated operation of geographically dispersed, self-sufficient units.
  • Greater precision to avoid collateral damage.
  • High mobility in indirect fire units, as a greater detection capacity make units vulnerable within minutes of firing.
