- First fragment and bullet resistant armor (Ranger Body Armor)
- Delivered nearly 200,000 non-metallic Enhanced Small Arms Protective Inserts (ESAPI) in support of Operations Iraqi Freedom and Enduring Freedom
- Selected by the Army and Marines to produce XSAPI body armor plates (next generation of body armor)
Chosen by the Army and Marines to produce ULV body armor plates (Low Visibility Plates)
TPG uses innovative designs and materials, providing our Warfighters state-of-the-art body armor and ensuring survivability against the latest ballistic threats. We continuously leverage our dedicated engineering team and advanced testing facilities to rapidly bring new ideas from factory to foxhole.
Through the use of innovative and cutting edge technologies, coupled with unique systems integration capabilities, our Warfighters are ensured the best protection possible.
On 10 September 2001, the United States Army Special Operations Command (USASOC) awarded TPG its initial contract for Ballistic Protection Systems (BPS). Based on the obvious escalation in world terrorism demonstrated the following day, TPG embarked on an aggressive low rate initial production (LRIP) schedule. Forty-five (45) days later, TPG received Air Worthiness Certification (AWR) and delivered the initial systems to the 160th Night Stalkers in theater.
TPG´s Ballistic Protection System (BPS) protects over 90% of the DOD´s rotary wing fleet, with over 2,000 BPS systems delivered to the Iraqi and Afghani theaters.
TPG has a history of developing, designing, and producing lightweight composite armor solutions with a focus on survivability, mobility, and lethal force protection.
We are committed to continually seeking out, testing and integrating leading-edge armor technologies to respond to the asymmetric threats facing the Warfighter in today’s battlefields.
Our advanced, on-site test capability allows us to test and benchmark armor systems against multiple ballistic threats. The result: instant feedback on critical performance metrics necessary in developing the best protection in the shortest time possible.
