DBT Wins Body Armor Contract For FBI

Diamondback Tactical announced that after a down select, it has been awarded the body armor contract for the U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI).

“We are truly honored to have been selected as the exclusive provider to the FBI,” says Andrew Bair, CEO of Diamondback Tactical, “and we are committed to delivering our highest quality armor system to support the Bureau and protect its personnel. In addition, we are proud to have a premier customer like the FBI recognize the quality and market leadership of Diamondback Tactical, and we look forward to continuing our service and support to its critical mission.”

Prior to the contract award, Diamondback Tactical was the sole-source supplier for mission-specific tactical armor kits for the FBI-Defensive Systems Unit. With the new award, Diamondback Tactical will remain the exclusive provider for supplying the FBI with a tri-compliant ballistics package which is tested in accordance with the NIJ Standard-0101.06, the FBI 4.0 Protocol and the DEA (2009) Protocol.

“Diamondback’s state-of-the-art armor system is optimized for the demanding performance and functional requirements of the FBI and its agents, and we look forward to demonstrating our superior capabilities throughout the length of this five-year contract,” says Mike Runella, Director for Specialty Programs and Contracts at Diamondback.

Diamondback Tactical has a dedicated program management and production team aimed at meeting the requirements for the FBI under this contract.
