Scottsdale, AZ (PRWEB) March 16, 2017
ATS Armor LLC (wholly owned subsidiary of Achilles Technology Solutions, LLC (ATS)), a global designer and manufacturer of advanced, lightweight hard body armor and ballistic shields, is now shipping the lightest and most affordable Patrol and Tactical shields to its customers. The Patrol Shield is a Type IIIA ballistic shield effective against all National Institute of Justice (NIJ) qualified handgun rounds at a weight of only 6 pounds. The Tactical Shield is a Type III ballistic shield effective against rifle threats at and below .308 caliber rounds that are not armor piercing, and is as light as 18 pounds.
“ATS Armor debuted the prototypes of these two ballistic shields at the International Association of Chiefs of Police conference last October,” stated Thomas Smith, CEO of ATS and Co-Founder of TASER International INC. (NASDAQ:TASR). “Our customers had been asking if we could make ballistic shields with the same advanced performance, lighter and stronger, similar to our multi-shot QuadCurve® hard armor plates. In only a few months, we have delivered our first production shields after implementing customer feedback received on our prototypes. Our ballistic shields are about half the weight and half the price compared to what has been previously available in the market,” concluded Mr. Smith.
ATS Armor also has the ability to customize shield sizes up to 30” x 40” and have options for viewports and light kits for each type of shield. The shields are ergonomically designed to be easily maneuverable and are ambidextrous.
All of ATS Armor’s hard armor plates and ballistic shields are GSA listed under contract number GS-07F-0273T or is searchable by “ATS Armor” in the GSA listings.
