NIJ .06-certified ballistic systems at NTOA Conference

Point Blank Solutions Inc, a leader in the field of protective body armor, announced that the Company's subsidiaries, Point Blank Body Armor and Protective Apparel Corporation of America (PACA), will be demonstrating its new NIJ .06-certified ballistic systems at the 2009 National Tactical Officers Association (NTOA) Conference. Among the latest solutions to be showcased, are the improved Dragon Fire and Four Star tactical body armor with KXPIIIA ballistic package, which was developed in collaboration with DuPont Protection Technologies. These solutions will be on display at the Company's booth (#601) in the exhibit hall from September 13-14 at the Tulsa Convention Center in Tulsa, Oklahoma.

Specially designed to address the strategic needs of officers' most critical missions, Point Blank's Dragon Fire and PACA's Four Star, incorporate the new DuPont Kevlar XP technology. The KXPIIIA ballistic model is not only rigorously tested against "Special Threats," it also meets or exceeds Military V50 Specifications for Fragment Simulating Projectile (FSP) testing, and delivers unparalleled protection under the most extreme field conditions. Based on DuPont's laboratory test results, most bullets can be stopped within the second or third layer of the ballistic panel, while remaining layers absorb the bullet's energy -- decreasing back face signature (BFS) by 15% or more and as a result, reducing potentially serious ballistic and trauma injuries.

The Dragon Fire vest features several exclusive technologies such as the Self Suspending Ballistic System (SSBS), Rapid Release Break Away System and the Industry's only Bicep and Side Closure Plate Pocket Design -- accommodating a variety of plates including the ultra lightweight, Special Threats Plate (STP). Its patented Kevlar XP fabric is also up to 10% lighter than other commercially available technologies made to defeat the most challenging NIJ Level IIIA ballistic threat -- the 44 Magnum. This side-opening armor system combines essential coverage and maneuverability with its ergonomically designed Critical Contour Cut, while providing split-second adaptability when needed most.

Similarly, the newly designed Four Star vest provides maximum protective coverage, extreme versatility in fit and enhanced adjustability for greater mobility. The vest is ideal for tactical officers who need functional load-carrying capabilities with the versatility to adapt to any operation, and will hold up to the toughest demands while offering superior protection. A ballistic panel suspension system keeps protective panels in place and optimizes coverage area; a shoulder strapping system provides up to 5'' of adjustability; a D-Ring quick release system on the shoulders and waist enables rapid doffing; and a MOLLE Compatible Webbing Attachment System allows for the configuration of multiple pouches.

In addition to Dragon Fire and Four Star with KXPIIIA, other tactical systems such as the SVIII,Multi-Component Plate Harness, SPIDER, and Assault-One, along with the Company's exclusive ThorShield electroshock weapon protection technology will be displayed. Attendees can meet with the Point Blank Body Armor and PACA team for one-on-one product demonstrations and discuss how the Company's new ballistic models meet the industry's toughest testing requirements yet.
