A New Addition to the LASA PortfolioTactical Cut Shield Preview at Milipol Paris, 19-22 November, Stand N083 Hall 5
Global armour manufacturer, NP Aerospace, has extended its LASA Lightweight Armoured Soldier Architecture portfolio with the launch of new ballistic shields for tactical operations.
The second generation shields range provides ballistic multi-hit protection for high risk tactical teams to NIJ Level III+ special threats. A range of sizes and designs are available with or without viewports and weapon rests, providing optimum manoeuvrability in challenging environments. Lighting and camera systems can be fitted to offer additional flexibility.
The tactical cut variant (pictured above) is being launched at this week’s Milipol Homeland Security event in Paris from 19-22 November. The shield is designed in response to end user demand for enhanced ergonomics, user flexibility and overall weight reduction in addition to protection against 7.62mm and 5.56 rifle ball rounds and hand guns.
New design features include ladder rails and rugged corner protectors to enable the shield to be used at different angles or as a ramp. Each shield has a radius curve allowing it to fit more closely to the body, and attachment points to allow weapons to be added.
James Kempston, CEO, NP Aerospace, comments: “Rising global terror threats are driving defence and security manufacturers to introduce new design innovations which deliver greater value for both end users and procurement teams. Through our continued close engagement with special forces operations and law enforcement agencies we are seeing increased demand for modular products which allow integration with other systems and adjustment to fit different body sizes, as it enables defence spending to be optimised. Our new shields are designed to deliver the highest level of protection combined with flexible operator features to allow use in the widest range of tactical scenarios.”
The new NP Aerospace second generation shield range is designed for rugged operations and includes lightweight ballistic composite handle systems for single handed and dual operations. There are two main variants in the range – Generation 2 Shields which come in three sizes and the Tactical Cut shield which is available in two sizes. All products in the range are now available to order.
