AMTANK Armor Highlights Blast-Protection Technology at AUSA 2011

CLEVELAND, OH--(Marketwire - February 16, 2011) -  AMTANK Armor is dedicated to meeting the US Army's mandate of "Institutional Adaptation" with its protective building systems and will exhibit the technology at AUSA's ILW Winter Symposium & Exposition in Fort Lauderdale, February 23rd through 25th (Booth #2600).

In response to the military's need for versatile and fast response to changing threats, AMTANK Armor adapted its patented Steel Composite Technology (SC) for use in structural panels for semi-mobile protective structures. The panels can be adapted for specific protection requirements and offer superior blast and ballistic defense. The structures provide quick set-up, modular versatility and minimal logistics.

These re-useable structures can be configured as operation and command centers, barracks, storage or perimeter protection, and can be equipped with fully self-contained power, HVAC and water, as needed. They are designed to combat blast and ballistic as well as chemical, fire and environmental threats. To be responsive in a competitive security environment, these adaptive structures will be vital.

"AMTANK Armor was developed to offer both lightweight composite protection for the vehicle market and Steel Composite protection for semi-mobile and non-mobile structures. Our SC product offers occupants a significant level of blast and ballistic protection. This product is manufactured in Cleveland, Ohio, and can be easily attached to the interior or exterior of a structure utilizing our patented ballistic bolts," states Ken Ripich, Executive Vice President.
