Romanian light armoured vehicle


Absolute premiere for the local defense industry: BlueSpace TECHNOLOGY launches the VLAH project, the first Romanian light armored vehicle

Bucharest, 15 February 2022: VLAH is the first combat vehicle in the range of light armored tactical vehicles (ATBTU), designed and developed with Romanian resources and know-how of the company BlueSpace TECHNOLOGY

The implementation of the VLAH (Autonomous Hydrated Fighting Vehicle) project will start at the beginning of 2022 and represents the BlueSpace TECHNOLOGY proposal for equipping Romania’s national defense system with a state-of-the-art means of combat, which will be produced in the country. The finished product of the project is a light 4×4 armored car, weighing 9 tons and integrated into the national defense industry. It is the first armored vehicle that can be made entirely in the country and is just one example of local development capabilities and possibilities

In the process of assembling the technical solution, BlueSpace TECHNOLOGY was looking for a strong partner in the military car industry, which can provide a solid foundation, corresponding to a future armored car production line in Romania. Thus, on February 14, 2022, a collaboration contract was signed with Zetor Engineering, a company from the Slovak Republic, an internationally recognized manufacturer of armored cars, with 75 years of experience in the automotive industry

History has always shown us the need for a country’s independence, to strengthen its own capabilities and to diversify its internal resources. Likewise, history always shows us the need to look to the future and find the best solutions that provide stability and protection. And the pandemic period reinforced this need to find the necessary resources nationally, precisely in order to be able to respond to both current requirements and potential crises”

Constantin Pintilie, Founder & CEO BlueSpace TECHNOLOGY.

First Romanian Light Armoured Vehicle

Design of the armored vehicle began earlier this year, followed by a significant investment in the production, testing and approval of the prototype. It will be the largest project in the Romanian car industry and a premiere for the national defense industry.

Fire prevention system OXY-Safe for ICU


Fire prevention system OXY-Safe for ICU – The latest innovation of BlueSpace TECHNOLOGY (BST), in partnership with the Military Technical Academy ”Ferdinand I” (ATM). The device has the role of preventing explosions generated by the invisible accumulation of oxygen in ICU areas.

Today, after a long period of material and intellectual resources invested, we interrupt our absence from the online environment and announce the latest innovation of the R&D department, composed of BST and ATM researchers – Fire prevention system OXY-Safe for ICU.

Oxygen leaks due to intensive use in ICU chambers (and not only) form a dangerously flammable concentrated “blanket” of oxygen on the floor, due to high density of the gas. The risk of an explosion is inevitable, as even the slightest spark can trigger a devastating scenario.

The development of the OXY-Safe system has been strongly stimulated by the desire to prevent harmful situations that may occur in the scenario specified above. Designed to have the highest possible applicability rate, and can be integrated into existing security systems, it notifies through visual and sound alarms when the normal oxygen level in the room is exceeded and thus causes the staff to take the necessary measures to reduce it.

The silence of a researcher predicts the noise of innovation.”

Constantin Pintilie

Over the years, we have addressed the public through practical solutions, reinforced by a strong contribution to society and we have ensured that our research will become, over time, significant pillars of the various branches of technology in which we operate.
