ArmorCon 2013
Military Armor Conference

25 February, 2013 - 27 February, 2013, Arlington, VA, United States

New In the Armor Industry

Body Armor

  • The global body armor and personal protection market is estimated to value US$1.5 bn in 2012 and to increase at a CAGR of 4.89% during the forecast period (2012-2022), to reach its peak of US$2.4 bn by 2022.
  • Female body armor, after years of testing and development, has finally been released this year and the 101st Airborne Division female soldiers have deployed to Afghanistan with them.
  • Because of a 90% increase in groin injuries from 2009-2010, the Army has poured over $20M into ballistic underwear development in 2012.
  • With the Operational Tempo slowing down in overseas conflicts and the subsequent slowdown of rapid fire rush orders, PEO-Soldier is now able to take a holistic view of soldier protective equipment rather than a “Christmas Tree approach” with new requirements hastily attached to an already haphazardly assembled system. This means PEO-Soldier is looking at the concept of body protection from a clean slate.

Vehicle Armor

  • The Joint Light Tactical Vehicle (JLTV) just entered into a more mature stage in the acquisition cycle with only 3 vendors winning ~$65M contracts each. They are tasked to develop a working model for the final version before the military will make its decision on the final vendor.
  • There are active contracts out for Anti-Armor Analysis Programs (AAAP) that seek to understand what sorts of attacks vehicles are experiencing in order to better counter them.
  • Law Enforcement agencies across the nation are becoming more supportive of armored vehicles with many purchases taking place just this year.
