Special Threats Test Results
The NIJ has set forth specific bullets and test velocities in the NIJ 0101.06 Standard. Currently NIJ does not provide for testing and Certification to bullets outside of those listed in the standard. The continuing evolution of bullet technology has resulted in a number of bullets that are more difficult to defeat than those listed in the NIJ Standard. Some of these bullets have come to be known as “special threats”.
Our comprehensive approach to product development continues to set the industry benchmark for ballistic armor technology.
Inside our world-class PBEI Technology and Testing Center, a state-of-the-art ballistic laboratory allows us to continuously develop maximum-performance products that consistently exceed National Institute of Justice (NIJ), U.S. Military, Government (DEA and FBI) and International testing requirements. Incorporated into the technology center are two 75-foot ballistic shooting test ranges. The ranges are equipped to meet all of the requirements of an NIJ Certified ballistic testing facility and are capable of testing a full spectrum of projectiles, from 22- to 50-caliber projectiles or bullets, as well as 2-, 4-, 6-, 16- and 64-grain fragment-simulating projectiles (FSP).
The center also includes a dedicated R&D Garment Design Department that designs cutting-edge concealable and tactical carriers with the highest level of ergonomic fit and finish. This combination of ballistic expertise and garment design provides a seamless culmination of the most advanced body-armor systems that are unparalleled in ballistic protection and comfort.
