The Protective Group has over 50 years of body armor innovation. Contemporary benchmarks include:
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.
