APV Handbook CoverOn November 9, SURVICE was awarded a contract by the Combating Terrorism Technical Support Office's (CTTSO's) Technical Support Working Group (TSWG) to update the current Armored Passenger Vehicle (APV) Handbook. The original handbook, which was developed by SURVICE back in 2009, contains guidance on APV budget and procurement requirements, quality assurance/quality control procedures, vehicle classification specifications, general threat information, inventory control methods, driver training, vehicle maintenance, vehicle replacement, life-cycle issues, and ballistic and blast protection and automotive performance guidelines and testing protocols. This project will focus on updating the handbook as changes have been made to vehicles, procurement procedures, maintenance, and other related APV information, rendering the current handbook outdated. The updated handbook is expected to be released in late 2019.
