Ballistic Protection

Spectra Combat Vehicle ArmorComplete the Mission

Honeywell ballistic composite materials are used in a wide variety of armor applications, including military and law enforcement vests, helmets and vehicle armor. We develop innovative solutions to drive weight reductions in armor systems, enabling military and law enforcement personnel to be more effective in extreme situations. Our materials are designed with improved survivability and mission completion in mind.

Spectra shield Body Armor

Spectra Shield® reduces weight of overall breast plate design and substantially improves multi-hit protection.

Our ballistic composite materials are used in a variety of soft and hard body armor applications for police, military and VIPs, including:

  • Concealable and tactical vests
  • Breast plates
  • Protective outer garments (POGs)
  • Protective under garments (PUGs)

Our materials are also used in hand shields and bomb blankets.

The lightweight, high-strength materials offer many benefits:

  • Pistol and rifle threat protection
  • Fragmentation protection
  • Backface reduction
  • Comfort and flexibility
  • Little to no moisture absorption
  • Improved survivability for mission completion

Helmet Performance Test

In addition to a ballistics laboratory, Honeywell has a variety of industry-accepted testing capabilities to characterize the non-ballistic performance of helmets.

Helmet manufacturers are faced with the challenge of pairing helmet performance improvements with reductions in weight. Our ballistic composite materials provide superior ballistic and fragment protection performance at the lowest possible weight.

Our customers take advantage of our complete in-house facility designed to quickly and effectively develop best-in-class helmet offerings. Our applications laboratory enables:

  • Material design
  • Rapid creation of new materials and technologies
  • Prototype helmet manufacturing
  • End-article testing (ballistic and non-ballistic)

Honeywell ballistic materials are also used to manufacture protective gear that provides face protection, such as mandibles.
