Military Vehicle Display to Showcase Tactical Vehicles

11 February 2008

ArmorWorks LLC and Tech Fiber LLC, both Phoenix-based high-tech armour protection providers, will showcase their Ballistic Advantage Kit armour systems during Techtextil North America (TTNA), April 1-3, in Atlanta, Ga.

The featured M915 A2/A3 tactical vehicles and High Mobility Multipurpose Wheeled Vehicle (HMMWV) will be fitted with the armour protection currently being used by the U.S. Army and U.S. Marine Corps.

“This armour exceeds IED [improvised explosive device] specifications,” said ArmorWorks’ Vice President of Business Development Robert Codney. The M915 A2 and A3 full-scale cab and underbody armament and the fully-armoured HMMWV utilize ceramic systems containing aramid fibres manufactured by exhibitor, Tech Fiber LLC.

“By showcasing such a relevant end-use, we are hoping to grow the awareness of what the high-performance materials exhibited at Techtextil are capable of,” said Stephanie Everett, the show’s manager. “It is an honour for us to have the ArmorWorks team joining us this April and we believe that the display will be of great interest to our attendees.”
