AoA utilizes state-of-the-art lightweight materials to provide protection up to NIJ level III, IV and above. Innovative products like the Armour Float ballistic flotation vest, which is UL and US Coast Guard approved, shows that AoA is on the cutting edge of agency needs. The Leguard leg armor is the only rigid, level IIIA leg protection in the industry. The rigid design greatly reduces the backface trauma seen with soft armor leg protection.

Custom fixed and rotary-wing aircraft armor kits
AoA also produces custom armor kits for most fixed and rotary wing aircraft. Our armor design team can measure the aircraft, taking note of special nuances; generate a certified drawing package; manufacture and deliver the kit; and assist in the installation. This level of service makes AoA a truly turnkey supplier.
Our armor kits are lightweight and have the capability of countering military Armor Piercing (AP) rifle and sub-machine gun fire.

This design concept allows for the minimum number of joints with the maximum amount of ballistic integrity.
