Press Release, Coventry, 05 November 2019: Global armour manufacturer, NP Aerospace, has been awarded Notification of Compliance from the [US] National Institute of Justice (NIJ) for two of its Level III+ Lightweight Body Armor Plates.
The LASA LWB III+ IC06 Lightweight Buoyant Hard Armour Plate and LASA LWA III+ 109 IC06 Lightweight Hard Armour Plate are both now certified to NIJ 0101.06 by the governing body that oversees performance standards and testing for ballistic armour. Both have been certified in conjunction with soft armour.
James Kempston, CEO, NP Aerospace, comments: “Body armour plates are critical to protecting our military and law enforcement personnel and therefore the way we undertake our ballistic testing is central to our manufacturing processes and something we take very seriously. Having NIJ compliance for our Level III+ plates is part of a bigger strategy to grow our law enforcement business in North America. It allows us to take our well-established military products into a sector which is demanding increased levels of protection.”
The LWB III+ IC06 plate delivers ultra-lightweight multi-hit protection against NIJ Level III and special threats and is positively buoyant. The LWA III+ 109 IC06 plate also stops ‘Green Tip’ SS109 ammunition.
