SAFirE™ Transparent Armor Solutions address the ever increasing demands of ballistic performance at a reduced weight and thickness. Results from our latest designs have shown a greater than 50% reduction in weight and thickness at improved ballistic performance compared to traditional glass solutions. Alternatively, ballistic performance can be significantly enhanced without increasing weight and thickness.
Our transparent armor product line incorporates EFG™ Sapphire, 2nd in hardness to diamond, which provides an extremely hard and abrasion resistant strike face that ‘breaks’ the projectile upon impact. SAFirE™ solutions have been designed to meet a variety of ballistic threats, while providing improved situation awareness in both the visual and Infra-Red spectra. SAFirE™ is currently being used in both ground vehicle and rotary wing platforms for the US Military.
