Our success is based upon our unwavering commitment to our customers to deliver extremely high-quality, lightweight armor systems. CoorsTek Armor Solutions designs, tests, manufactures, and installs thousands of armor systems – including those that have protected soldiers in theatres such as the former Yugoslavia, Africa, Afghanistan, and Iraq.
We have a wide range of products available for fleets including the General Dynamics Land Systems’ Stryker, LAV3, M113, PLS, Medium Logistics Vehicle Wheeled (including the US M35’s), Heavy Logistics Vehicle Wheeled—Steyr 10T, Oshkosh MTVR and AM General HMMWV.
Our armor solutions range from specialized steel to high-performance, lightweight ceramic composites and may include our own spall liner – specially designed to enhance complete vehicle protection. We can provide completely integrated systems meeting a wide range of threats, including all ballistic and mine blast levels of NATO STANAG 4569 Level IV and FRAG Level V.
Our specialty niche is ceramic composite armor – armor delivering better protection for considerably less weight. We are also constantly looking for the right strategic partners to ensure we can update and provide our extensive range of protection and survivability requirements.
CoorsTek Armor Solutions designs and develops ceramic composite armor for wheeled tactical vehicles to meet STANAG 4569 Level IV, FRAG Level V, and AEP 55 to Level IV.
Our armor also meets the US Army Long-Term Armor Strategy (LTAS) requirements – successfully completing all tests to date.
