DHB Industries to supply DAPS worth $60.6mn to US army

Nov '06
DHB Industries Inc, a leader in the field of protective body armor, announced that Point Blank Body Armor, one of the Company's wholly-owned subsidiaries, received a $60.6 million order to supply the United States Army with Deltoid Axillary Protection System (D.A.P.S).

This order is part of a $239.4 million contract awarded in June 2004. Potential awards remaining on this initial three-year contract, are $118.9 million. The Company will begin shipments this month.

Larry Ellis, President and Acting CEO of DHB Industries commented, "This is another significant order for our Company and a further testament to our quality product offering in the field of protective body armor."

"We have a long standing heritage with the U.S. Army and I'm proud that they continue to recognize the value, quality and security that our products provide to the soldiers that protect our nation."

D.A.P.S. was developed to meet increased threat levels and provides the U.S. Army with a more advanced system and upgraded warfighting capability by enhancing performance and ballistic coverage of the Interceptor OTV, the lightest, most technologically advanced body armor system ever issued to the United States Armed Forces.

D.A.P.S offers extended protection to the upper and under arm areas and meets the same ballistic standards as the Interceptor for 9mm and fragmentation protection.

The D.A.P.S. system attaches to the OTV and includes shoulder and underarm components and MOLLE compatible webbing on the outer surface which allows for equipment carrying.
