Our ballistic composite materials meet military standards to deliver comprehensive protection in body armor, tactical helmets and vehicle armor. Our innovative designs drive weight reductions in armor systems, enabling military personnel to be more effective in extreme situations. We design all our products with improved survivability, and mission completion is at the top of our list of requirements. 

We offer in-house design support with full-scale prototype manufacturing and testing facilities to our customers. Our industry-leading ballistic applications lab delivers:

  • Vest and helmet starting point design guidance
  • Prototype helmet manufacturing
  • End-article testing (ballistic and non-ballistic)
  • Materials processing improvements
