Resistant Ballistic Panels are
custom manufactured from multiple layers of Kevlar® and sewn within a
fire retardant, water repellent nylon cover to provide a longlasting
durable protective product.
light weight Ballistic Panels are designed to resist the ballistic
impact resulting from a variety of explosive ordnance including mortars,
rockets and a variety of other propelled materiel.
system is available for 2-door, 4-door and ambulance HMMWV models and
there are over 40 systems currently deployed in field operations in
. Similar system for civilian vehicles is currently under development.
kits are available in a variety of protection levels to match end user
operational requirements. Its flexible design allows the panels to be
removed/added depending on the type of vehicle used or the environment
in which the vehicle is to be deployed. The panels can be easily
repaired if they are damaged by fragmentation by the use of ‘add-on’
patches applied using Velcro attachments.
and Blast Protection Specifications
Ballistic Panels are manufactured in accordance with the standards of
the NIJ and U.S. Department of Justice is designed with the following

standard statistical ballistic test. V50 testing identifies the average
velocity at which a bullet or a fragment penetrates the protective armor
equipment in 50% of the test versus non-penetration in the remaining 50%
of the material tested.
- Blast Resistant Ballistic Panel System for the 4-door HMMWVs
comprised of 48 pieces of Level IIIA panels that cover the entire area
of the vehicle. We designed the system with a special emphasis on the
doors, driver and front passenger
leg areas. The front wheel well of the vehicle is particularly
vulnerable to damage from explosive devices. In this location, as in all
passenger areas, we deploy a double layer of ballistic protection.
engine/transmission area is protected with a single layer of material. A
layer of material separates the cargo and the passenger areas which
operates as a “curtain” and can be folded up or down as required.
ballistic panels are attached to the vehicle using mounting straps. Our
strapping system is designed for use in any model. For vehicles with
tubular roof supports, the straps mount directly around tubes. For
vehicles with solid roofs and no tubular supports, the straps are
permanently attached (using a drill/bolts).
doors of the vehicle require custom fit protective panels permanently
attached to the door frame. Our design permits the vehicle occupants to
use the vehicle side mirrors with minimal interference. An added
“pocket” is incorporated into the protective panels just below the
window area, allowing for the insertion of the SAPI Armor Piercing Level
III+ plate. This plate increases the level of protection for both the
driver and passenger.
