Thank you for welcoming :)

Yes, website is here:  Currently only showing a limited part of what is really available.

In the past 5-6 years there have been some improvements in manufacturing techniques and some new materials that have contributed in bringing new armour technologies.
At the end, it's a matter of balance between cost and weight (lightweight and performing materials are very expensive). But we are getting close to very nice results.
Recently some partners have introduced flexible NIJ III armour (multihit 7,62x39): still stiff but getting better.
Another great area of interest is transparent armour. Few US labs have some advanced research in this area, EU is not far behind and catching up.
Probably as with laminates and fabrics: we are all trying to get the best product to make a big difference.
