US Global Aerospace has introduced the SAG Turret Armor System for mounting on high-mobility military, police and security vehicles.
The SAG Turret System has been designed as a highly ballistic resistant lightweight personnel protection shielded turret for the High Mobility Multipurpose Wheeled Vehicle (“”HMMWV””, commonly pronounced Hum-Vee). There are currently over 150,000 HMMWV’s deployed around the world. The SAG Turret System weighs less than 200 pounds and offers significant ballistic ordnance protection to what would otherwise be a fully exposed soldier. Traditional armor shields are far too heavy and impede the gunner’s ability to effectively and rapidly rotate the turret during battle situations.
The durability, strength and low weight of the SAG Turret System comes from the proprietary G-Lam nano-fiber material. G-Lam is created with a patented computer-designed weaving process that results in a crimp-free material with tensile performance far superior to common anti-ballistic composite materials, which suffer from excessive fiber crimping and a rapid fall-off in woven material strength.
