KDH Defense Systems, Inc. has received notification that its new ballistic body armor, Model MD-101-IIIA, has been certified by the National Institute of Justice (NIJ), the research, development and evaluation agency of the U.S. Department of Justice, under the new NIJ Standard-0101.06 (NIJ .06). This new model is available for immediate purchase in concealable and tactical body armor configurations.
KDH Defense Systems’ new NIJ .06 body armor is eligible for U.S. Department of Justice BVP (Bulletproof Vest Partnership Act) funding and is manufactured in accordance with ISO 9001:2008 standards. NIJ Standard-0101.06, Ballistic Resistance of Body Armor, is the latest evolution in standards by which law enforcement protective vests are measured. The NIJ .06 Standard establishes minimum performance requirements and test methods for the ballistic resistance of personal body armor intended to protect against gunfire. In addition, body armor that is in compliance with the NIJ .06 Standard must protect against amplified velocities of ammunition and extreme conditions.
