Point Blank Enterprises Inc., the worldwide leader in the production of soft body armor and related protective solutions, unveiled the first-of-its-kind Alpha Elite Series NIJ Level II and IIIA tactical and concealable body-armor systems. After providing a sneak peak of the technology earlier this year, Point Blank has announced that the full line of Alpha Elite Series products at the 2014 Shooting, Hunting, and Outdoor Trade ShowSM (SHOT Show) and Conference.

Featuring the revolutionary Dyneema Force Multiplier Technology by DSM, the Alpha Elite Series provides high-performance ballistic protection integrated in a fully functional and scalable design to meet the needs of Law Enforcement, Military and U.S. Special Operations. A key focus of the Alpha Elite series product development was also ensuring that this ground-breaking technology is affordable to the vast majority of law enforcement agencies.

Available in both concealable and tactical configurations, independent testing has confirmed that the Alpha Elite Level II and Level IIIA offer the lightest and highest performing NIJ 0101.06 body armor in the world today. Importantly, the Alpha Elite Level II and IIIA products meet the requirements of the FBI test protocol.

“Rigorous testing by independent labs has shown the Level II and Level IIIA Alpha Elite products are the best performing and lightest-weight products on the market today, and we are able to offer them at a cost that is comparable to other soft-armor ballistic solutions,” said Michael Foreman, vice president of government and international sales and head of product-line management at Point Blank Enterprises. “We are thrilled that we can offer this revolutionary product that was designed to meet the rigorous demands of U.S. Special Operations forces deployed in the world’s most dangerous regions to law enforcement, federal, military and special-ops personnel at home and around the world.”

Foreman added, “We are particularly proud to be featuring, for the first time at SHOT Show, the Alpha Elite Level II product, which has proven to be 20 percent lighter and six percent higher performing than the best NIJ .06 Level II models previously on the market. The array of products provides consumers with a broad spectrum of choices to fit the strategic needs of their missions.”

Technology Behind Alpha Elite

Dedicating more than three years to development by DSM Dyneema’s radical-innovation program, the Dyneema Force Multiplier Technology ballistic material was designed to defeat high-velocity handgun rounds and fragmentation with minimal backface deformation. Point Blank collaborated closely with DSM to become the first trademark licensee in law enforcement personal protection.

The scientifically advanced fusion of polymer science, fiber technology and uni-directional engineering provides a level of ballistic protection in Point Blank’s Alpha EliteTM Series with Dyneema Force Multiplier Technology that has never been seen before in the industry. In fact, the NIJ Level IIIA performance is now available with comfort levels more typical of Level II body armor. Compared to Point Blank’s previous lightest Level IIIA vest, the Alpha EliteTM Series is a full 12 percent lighter.

“Dyneema Force Multiplier Technology is a result of DSM Dyneema’s radical innovation program that will create a new benchmark in light-weight ballistics solutions,” said Shitij Chabba, DSM Dyneema Global Business Director for Life Protection. “DSM Dyneema is proud to have Point Blank as our first licensee for this technology. We look forward to working together to outfit law enforcement and military professionals with this revolutionary product that provides unmatched comfort and mobility.”

Ballistic Underwear

Product From U.S. ARMOR CORP.

U.S. Armor revealed their new Ballistic Underwear at SHOT Show 2014, a product designed to offer ballistic protection for the femoral artery and groin. The product protects the law officer or military personnel from a fatal gunshot to the femoral artery; an area previously unprotected by other body armor items worn in the field. Although an officer’s quality of life would go down dramatically after a gunshot wound to the groin region, an injury to the femoral region is a life-threatening situation. If an EMT or Doctor is not immediately present to treat a severe injury to the femoral artery, the life expectancy of the injured officer is extremely low. A high percentage of officers injured in this way would bleed to death before showing up at a nearby hospital. With the new Ballistic Underwear product, officers can now comfortably be protected in this vital area from fatal threats that they face every day.
