Inflatable Body Armour System
(
INFLATABLE & BALLISTIC VESTS)


We are pleased to announce a major breakthrough in another area.
It is developed a long-awaited safety product for use in dangerous and demanding environments.
The Inflatable Body Armour System - (IBAS).


 


Using the same principle as our other life-saving products, this is the latest concept to be developed.
Defence agencies around the world had tried unsuccessfully over the last few years to develop a range of inflatable body armour.
Design features body armour that can withstand multiple hits from a machine gun or AK47 and
yet still function as an automatically inflating life jacket, should the wearer fall into water.
The jacket will also withstand shrapnel and grenade attacks, whilst protecting the wearer.
Government, law enforcement and military agencies worldwide have expressed a great deal of interest.




If you fall into water, the life jacket will inflate AUTOMATICALLY within 5 seconds.
If you should be unfortunate enough to hit your head and are knocked unconscious,
the jacket is specially designed to turn you over onto your back, even in 3ft waves, therefore keeping your face clear of the water.

The system works like this:
A water sensitive component within the firing head activates a high pressure spring to pierce a CO2 cylinder and subsequently inflates the life jacket very quickly.
THE UNIT WILL NOT INFLATE IN A RAIN SHOWER, OR IF YOU ARE ON THE DECK OF A BOAT AND IN WATER SPRAY.
The automatic inflation unit is fully CE approved and has been manufactured and tested to the highest international safety standards.
Once it has been activated, the jacket can easily be re-armed for future use by buying one of the re-arming kits.

IBAS IN COVERT OPERATIONS

Additional Information
The company offers a specific design and supply service to meet the customer's
 exact requirements,
both for the outer jacket design and the body armour.
There is a full range of different styles of jacket available.

Body Armour
What is important to note, is that the soft armour supplied will far exceed normal
international standards, to give greater protection to the wearer and equipment.
For example, all soft armour meets a minimum of American NIJ Standard IIIA. NIJ Level IIIA requires a maximum backface deformation of 44mm for a 9mm 8gm @ 4.26 m/s. Our armour gives a deformation of approx 7mm and with our standard armour piercing plate, there is virtually no deformation.







 "TAAIV" Tactical Aircrew Armoured Inflatable Vest

A versatile and practical vest incorporating an inflatable life jacket with the ability to contain soft or hard armour to protect the life jackets and the wearer from bullet and
other fragmentation attacks. The jacket gives considerable extra comfort and flexibility in comparison to traditional life jackets that are often considered bulky and unduly restrictive
for both pilot, aircrew or passengers. The jacket offers enhanced protection for escape and evasion by allowing the life jacket to be inflated and deflated at will to allow water crossing.
A detachable lower section can be added.

 

Unique Design
A unique, versatile and practical jacket incorporating a life jacket with the added ability to contain both soft and hard armour, to protect the life jacket and wearer from bullet and fragmentation attack. The jacket is a patented design developed in conjunction with the British Government SMART Award programme. It gives considerable extra comfort and flexibility in comparison to traditional life jackets that are often considered bulky and unduly restrictive. An outstanding feature of the jacket is that is that it gives a revolutionary clearance between the jacket and the helmet, so giving the wearer completely unrestricted movement, compared to traditional designs.

 

The jacket has been specially designed to aid escape and evasion, by allowing the wearer to inflate and deflate the jacket at will to enable water crossing, together with a spray hood to help counter hypothermia. Picture shows vest in adaptable V-Neck option.
