TPG is the leader in lightweight composite armor (aircraft, transparent, naval, body armor and vehicle systems) solutions providing durable, multi-hit small arms protection for various military aircraft supported by the U.S. and its allies. 90% of the DOD’s Helicopters have implemented the Ballistic Protection System (BPS).

Their product-based solutions draw upon extensive material, ballistic and structural/crashworthy heritage. As of today, TPG currently has over fifty Air Worthiness Certificates with the U.S. Army, Navy and Air Force. With the broadest range of technology available in the market we are able to address the most challenging applications with proven time-tested building blocks.

Benefits include: 600 LB weight reduction using composite instead of steel, lightweight transparent armor panels that increase armor protection beyond the .50 caliber range, no modification to aircraft needed for MITAS (Plug and Play install), airworthiness certifications by the US Army.
