Plasan Sasa is honoured to win the NDIA 2017 Red Ball Express Award.

The National Defense Industrial Association’s (NDIA) Tactical Wheeled Vehicle (TWV) Division today announced the Industry and Government recipients of the 2017 Red Ball Express Award. This year’s honorees are Dani Ziv, chief executive officer of Plasan Sasa and the Strategic Acquisition Programs Directorate of the Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) Land and Maritime primary-level field activity.

NDIA presents the award annually to individuals and government institutions who make significant contributions towards strengthening our national security through the introduction, support and development of tactical wheeled vehicles. This year, the NDIA TWV division has begun awarding the Red Ball Express Award in two categories: industry and government.

The NDIA is America’s leading defence industry association promoting national security. NDIA provides a legal and ethical forum for the exchange of information between industry and government on national security issues. NDIA and its members foster the development of the most innovative and superior equipment, as well as training and support for warfighters and first-responders, through its divisions, local chapters, affiliated associations and events.

Thanks to Mr Ziv’s leadership, Plasan Sasa provides the US military with exceptional vehicle armour that has saved countless lives of American service members, and continues to protect them to this day.

Plasan Sasa’s innovations include vehicular cabin, chassis and hull armor kits, which are protecting personnel and equipment on MaxxPro, MRAP (Mine Resistant and Ambush Protected) and M-ATV (all-terrain) vehicles.

Plasan Sasa is the first Israeli company to win this honoured award.
