Protective body armour for use in water.

Breckford International : 24 March, 2008  (New Product)
The launch of body armour suitable for navy personnel and river police drew significant interest in NavExFor 2008 exhibition.
Tactical Solution Partners has announced the introduction of ArmoRight, an innovative body armour system offering neutral or positive buoyancy in a compact form factor, at the 2008 NavExFor (Navy Expeditionary Forces) Symposium and Expo in Virginia Beach, Virginia on March 11-13, 2008.

The launch of the ArmoRight body armour system advances the Company's ongoing commitment to developing and commercialising next generation products and services targeting several multibillion-dollar segments of the international homeland security and defence industries.

ArmoRight, a lightweight body armour designed and engineered by one of TTSR's retired Navy personnel, offers unparalleled protection and fit and is manufactured to be either neutrally or positively buoyant. The buoyancy feature, combined with years of Naval experience in proper engineering and fit of the vest itself, created a significant level of interest at the Expo, particularly by foreign and domestic military agencies operating in and around maritime environments.

"While many of the attendees were interested in our lines of hook knives and rugged thirty-round ammunition magazines, we were overwhelmed by their response to our military and law enforcement ArmoRight systems," commented Doug McQuarrie, Director of Technology and Marketing for the Company's TSO division and designer of the ArmoRight body armour system.

"We designed our personnel protective equipment for buoyancy, user comfort and performance in tight-quarters, shoot and move situations. With all of the requirements placed on our military and law enforcement personnel, the one-size-fits-all approach to ballistics protection equipment no longer works," McQuarrie continued. "We believe we can deliver a body armour system adaptable to the needs of all of our customer groups."

"We're encouraging all military and law enforcement agencies to work with us to better protect their personnel with ArmoRight," said William Shafley, Chief Executive Officer of Tactical Solution Partners. "Not only will the systems deliver comprehensive defence from handgun, rifle and fragmentation threats, our lightweight design protocols also ensure that users are unencumbered by poorly fitting, heavy and one-shot-protection armour which many are relying upon today. There's a better solution out there, and it's ArmoRight."

The NavExFor 2008 Symposium and Expo, hosted by the The Lodestar Group, LLC entitled "Expeditionary Forces: Essential for 21st Century Seapower Strategy," centred on the Navy's Expeditionary Combat Command initiative, which began in October 2007 and is focused on building and expanding the capabilities of joint force sea power through training, technology and mission readiness programs. NavExFor 2008 was attended by over 1800 maritime, inland waterway, expeditionary, explosives ordnance and combat engineer professionals from foreign and domestic law enforcement agencies.

Over 150 exhibitors, including Tactical, showcased products and services ranging from combat and police equipment to watercraft and intelligence technologies. Presenters included US Navy Commanders of Explosive Ordnance Disposal, River Squadron One and Expeditionary Training Command as well as Rear Admiral Michael Tillotson, the Commander of the Navy Expeditionary Combat Command, among others.
