Lightweight Flightdeck Armor System

    ArmorShield14, is certified in accordance's below by an independent lab.
  • H.P. White Laboratory Inc.
  • U.S Department of Transportation, Federal Aviation Administration
    Advisory Circular No. 25.795-2, FLIGHTDECK PENETRATION
    RESISTANCE dated January 10, 2002
  • NIJ Level IIIA National Institute of Justice

Testing was conducted in accordance with the provisions of FAA Advisory Circular Number 25.795-2, dated January 10, 2002, using calibers .44 Magnum, 240 grain, JHP and 9mm Luger, 124 grain, FMJ ammunition. The test samples were rigidly positioned on an indoor range 16.4 feet from the muzzle of a test barrel to produce zero degree obliquity impacts. Photoelectric lumiline screens were positioned at 6.5 and 11.5 feet which, in conjunction with the elapsed time counters (chronographs), were used to compute projectile velocities 9.0 feet forward of the muzzle. Penetrations were determined by visual examination of a 0.020 inch thickness alloy 2024T3 aluminum witness panel positioned 6.0 inches behind, and parallel to, the test samples. Table I presents a summary of the attached data records.

TABLE I. SUMMARY OF RESULTS
Test Sample Ballistic Threat Penetration
Number Weight (lb) Obliquity (Degrees) Caliber Shots Velocity
Maximum Minimum
HPW-1 1.42 0 .44 Mag 4 1446 1421 0
30 .44 Mag 2 1442 1425 0
HPW-2 1.43 0 9 mm 4 1478 1433 0
30 9 mm 2 1441 1436 0

Based on the data presented in Table I, the test samples submitted for testing SATISFIED the ballistics resistance requirements of FAA Advisory Circular Number 25.795-2, dated 10 January 2002.
