Las Vegas, Nevada, 20 January 2020. The NP Aerospace lightweight ballistic helmets range has passed NIJ 0106.01 testing Level II against 9mm, .357 and Level IIIA 44 Mag ammunition rounds.

The AC915 high cut and AC914 full cut ballistic helmets are ultra-lightweight, delivering class leading ballistic, fragmentation and blunt trauma protection. The helmet range has also been extensively tested for impact, back face deformation and compression within NP Aerospace’s ballistic labs.

NP Aerospace ballistic helmets are fielded with multiple NATO militaries and are currently being delivered to Canada’s Department of National Defence (DND) for their national helmet program.

James Kempston, CEO, NP Aerospace, comments: “Since our first production of ballistic helmets in 1979, NP Aerospace has manufactured and delivered over 1 million units to the British and Canadian Armed Forces, amongst many other global customers. We take great pride in being an armor technology market leader and providing life-saving products. Successfully passing NIJ testing on our current helmets range aligns with our support of US and global law enforcement customers looking for NIJ compliant products.”
