The Armored Group (TAG) and Dana have jointly developed a new active ride control system for use on armored civilian, commercial and government vehicles.

The TAG/Dana Active Ride Control System (ARCS) replaces a vehicle’s standard passive shock absorbers with an electronically controlled active damping system (utilizing one of Dana’s OpenECU controllers) , which improves vehicle stability and ride comfort over a wide range of terrains and vehicle speeds.

Currently the TAG/Dana ARCS system is available as an installed option on TAG-built armored Chevrolet Suburban and Tahoe, the GMC Yukon and Cadillac Escalade. Several other similar vehicle types have ARCS packages currently in development.  Systems for larger heavy-duty Military and Law Enforcement vehicles are also planned.
