Diamond Age – The Future of Armor

May 26th, 2018

Leading edge anti-ballistic armor systems integrating the latest in enhanced multi-hit performance and durability in ceramic armor systems.

McKinney, Texas (May 2018) Diamond Age, a materials science and engineering firm focused on the R&D of leading-edge anti-ballistic armor systems announce their new rifle resistant Bastion Helmet and the Forcefield armor.

In addition to their work with ceramic materials and armor alloys, Diamond Age is a leading producer of boron nitride nanotubes for ceramic reinforcement. Boron Nitride Nanotubes are a nanomaterial that strengthens metal, glass and ceramic composites. Diamond Age is able to offer this material in an 80 – 90% purity and in a dense form (HD-BNNT) suitable for composite production.

“Regardless of the science behind our products, all our customer base of law enforcement and military professionals really want are lightweight products that can be worn all day, in a variety of environmental conditions while offering superior ballistic protection,” Jake Ganor, CEO of Diamond Age said. “It’s our job as engineers to come up with a level of protection that goes beyond NIJ regulations. This is not the next generation of anti-ballistic armor, but the ultimate generation.”

The BASTION Helmet is the first combat helmet that can withstand direct hits from all common rifle rounds including steel core rounds, at muzzle velocities. It has been tested and withstood rounds from 7.62 x 51mm M80, 7.62 x 39mm PS ball, 5.56 x 45mm M855A1, 5.56 x 45mm M193, 5.7x28mm SS190, and various handgun and SMG threats.

It is augmented with an ultra-lightweight carbon fiber and ceramic strike-face and designed for extreme use in the field. The BASTION helmet is completely modular featuring a full 5-plate configuration which covers the entirety of the helmet shell for manning turrets, vehicular patrols and tactical raids and entries. Infantrymen can configure to a lighter set up using on the front and back tiles, while snipers may choose to wear only the front tile. The BASTION accommodates Wilcox® shrouds without sacrificing any coverage and M-Lok rails are also available. The helmet includes the industry’s most advanced padding system, from 4D Tactical, for comfort and optimal performance against high-impact rifle rounds.

The Diamond Age Forcefield armor panel offers superior protection from a variety of high-velocity SMG special threats such as 7.62 x 25 mm Tokarev (over 1700 fps), 5.7 x 29mm (over 2100 fps) and the HK 4.6 x 30mm (over 2000 fps). Further handgun special threats tested and defeated include 80-grain solid copper 9mm SCS rounds. Knives, spikes and needles have also met their match with the Forcefield. The Forcefield also exceeds the military’s requirement for military-grad frag with a V50 against the 16fr RCC tested at over 2180 ft per second.

Yet the Forcefield for all its protective qualities is as thin and light as the average soft armor panel in its class at just 6.8mm and 1.17 pounds per square foot. Designed for uncompromising protection for SWAT, military and high-risk security personnel, the Forcefield is available in BALCS-cut panels and BALCS armor carriers are also available.

SOFIC 18 – Franklin Armory BFSIII TR-4 Trigger

May 25th, 2018

Franklin Armory debuted the TR-4 trigger at SOFIC 2018. This is the newest trigger to employ the patented BFSIII technology.  The TR-4 is a Military and Law Enforcement specific trigger that is designed to operate with a full auto sear trip.  It allows 4 selectable positions; Safe, Semi, Binary, and Full Auto.

The TR-4 gives Military and Law Enforcement agencies a more accurate, effective, and reliable trigger system that can drop into their existing platforms.  Of course, the Binary mode provides significantly reduced split times between rounds, allowing for tighter double tap groups.  In addition, the TR-4 incorporates the patented safety features designed into the original civilian BFSIII trigger.

The new design is easy for departments to transition to since safe, semi, and full auto are found in their traditional locations.  Binary mode is found by moving the selector so that it is pointing down.  This is a tremendous benefit to sworn personnel as it allows them to choose between two operating modes, semi, and Binary, with one flick of the switch.

The TR-4 also marks the first time that a pull release trigger has been employed with a machine gun sear trip.  By utilizing this function in Binary mode, reliability has been guaranteed.
