MISSION READY'S PROTECT THE FORCE ANNOUNCES INITIAL SHIPMENT OF FLEX9ARMOR
Mission Ready Services Inc. has received an initial order and made an initial shipment of its Flex9Armor tactical police shirt to a U.S. County Sheriff Department SWAT unit. Developed and fulfilled through the company's wholly owned subsidiary, Protect The Force Inc. (PTF), additional Flex9Armor shipments are currently being prepared for a foreign military order while evaluations are under way by a number of European NATO (North Atlantic Treaty Organization) nations.
Flex9Armor -- jointly developed in co-operation with the U.S. military -- comprises a family of protective garments that provide stringent levels of ballistic protection while maintaining exceptionally lightweight and flexible characteristics. Traditional armour lacks coverage of the arms, chest and neck region of the body, and current additional protection for these areas adds weight and reduces mobility. Flex9Armor incorporates a network of NIJ Level II and IIIA body armour panels into a breathable anti-microbial material that is 30 per cent lighter than conventional armour. Integrating all of these features into one combined garment makes Flex9Armor a superior option for first responders that is available in standard and fire-retardant configurations. Additionally, PTF this week released a variant of the Flex9Armor, the Flex9Spike, designed for use by federal, state and local correctional facilities.
In a news release dated Oct. 27, 2016, Mission Ready announced that PTF had won an award through the U.S. Department of Defence's defence to response (D2R) technology program for the provision of $110,000 (U.S.) in services from Texas A&M Engineering Extension Service's product development centre (TEEX PDC) to commercialize PTF's Flex9Armor to enhance public safety and homeland security. Protect The Force is currently working with over 70 U.S. federal, state and local law enforcement agencies at various stages of the evaluation and purchasing process. In anticipation of a significant demand for the Flex9Armor, PTF has streamlined its processes through a state-of-the-art on-line order-fulfilment platform and recently launched a manufacturing division based in Jacksboro, Tenn., in order to efficiently and effectively meet client requests.
