Research & Development

Research and Development at JODDB is a mission-oriented activity, which includes research, design, development, fabrication, and test & evaluation. This includes various areas of interest including Land systems, electronic and aerospace. This effort is implemented by following best practices in project management.
Our R&D facilities are designed to deliver defense solutions that achieve the requirements of JODDB partners especially the Jordanian Armed Forces (JAF) and other security agencies in Jordan and the region. This is accomplished by involving the end user in the process of requirements management in early stages of the project, creating cost-effective and high quality solutions.
In addition, our R&D activities focus on achieving technology advances and knowledge transfer through research efforts by JODDB team in addition to research efforts in cooperation with universities and research institutions. Moreover, one of our main R&D activities is the involvement in the process of identification, selection, recruitment and training the next generation of Jordanian engineers and technicians.


Land Systems:
Tactical, Armored and Artillery Vehicles, this segment includes but not exclusively the following projects:
  • Armored 4x4 APC platforms; such as Al Jawad MK4 and the medium-weight Al Wahsh
  • Armored 6x6 APC / AFV platform (Al Faris)
  • Armored 8x8 APC / AFV platform (Al Mared)
  • Modified vehicles
  • Light tactical 4x4 vehicles for Special Operations missions; such as Al Ghazal & Al Meghwar.
  • Light armored 4x4 vehicles with high mobility for internal security missions; such as Al Washaq & Al Maha that can be effectively used in urban areas.

Modernized Artillery Solutions

  • 155mm Howitzer on 6X6 Platform:

155mm Howitzer Gun integrated on 6x6 wheeled vehicles designed to suit artillery requirements (shoot and scoot) and support troops in different missions as it requires minimal efforts to reduce the readiness time. The platform is constructed to be transported by C130 to any location and equipped with a reliable electrohydraulic control system.

155mm Howitzer on 6X6 Platform (Under Development)

  • 105mm Gun on Al-Wahsh:

A self-propelled 105mm gun (M102) integrated on Al Wahsh 4x4 vehicle designed to suit artillery requirements (shoot and scoot) with minimal efforts to reduce readiness time and provide high accurate firing with the construction of a reliable independent suspension system to provide firing stability. Used by artillery corps to support quick and short-range missions, the hull design is based on the TATRA chassis with protection level according to STANAG 4569 KE L1, with the ability to be used against fortifications and act as an anti-tank weapon.

Ammunition: 24 (105mm) projectiles
