ATS Armor™ blends over 100 years of business, law enforcement and tactical expertise into a culture that is unique to the armor industry. We specialize in the design and manufacture of advanced hard armor plates that exceed NIJ 0101.06 certification standards. Our plates are multi-shot capable, provide edge-to-edge protection and include a patented QuadCurve™ shape for added safety and comfort. We use only the most sophisticated ballistic materials and technologies to produce ballistic plates that are lighter, stronger and safer.
ATS Armor ballistic plates are designed through a rigorous scientific approach referred to as EDMA℠: Electronic Design Mechanical Analysis. Our lifesaving protections are developed with NIJ laboratory and special threat testing, from the onset of design. The use of EDMA allows efficiencies in research and development, yielding superior ballistic designs.
Our plates are all multi-shot rated to defend against higher capacity, rapid fire weapons. We use a proprietary manufacturing process that allows our ceramic to break up armor piercing rounds without compromising the surrounding plate. With the ceramic still intact, our ballistic plates can withstand multiple shots. Our process also enables us to extend the ceramic to the edge of the plate for complete edge-to-edge protection.
A unique feature of our lightweight, standalone, hard armor plates is our patented QuadCurve design. The four curves provide an ergonomic fit and increase the wear-side contact with the body. This allows the plate to be used on either the front or back of your torso. This additional contact allows the energy from the bullet impact to be distributed over a greater area of the wear side of the plate. The increased dispersion of energy reduces the likelihood or severity of kinetic energy related injuries, for a safer and more comfortable body armor plate.
