AJAX™ Armor System

AJAX™ Armor System

 

The AJAX™ Armor System is an advanced rail-mountable ballistic shield for crew-served weapons. Designed for attachment to the rail systems located on the sides of a weapon, a typical AJAX configuration includes left and right-side armor systems that operate independently of one another.

Each side has an interchangeable armor plate and a compact, rail-compatible armor mount, which expands for use and is collapsible for stowing. When both sides are fully deployed, they provide vital shoulder-width ballistic protection for your face, neck, arms and upper torso, without compromising situational awareness. The system’s functional design maximizes protection while maintaining an effective line-of-sight for engaging targets.

This revolutionary up-armoring technology incorporates numerous design features that enable it to be mounted and fully deployed on a weapon in just a matter of seconds, without using tools. A specialized thumb-screw enables each mount to be swiftly clamped onto the side rails of the weapon, and a quick-attach feature allows the armor plates to slide effortlessly onto the mounts and lock into place.

With the press of a button, a built-in shock expands the armor mount into its deployed state, where it is secured in position with two spring-loaded retention clips. These innovative design features also make it very easy to collapse the system, detach it, or break it down into its individual components as easily and rapidly as it was put together.

The AJAX Armor System, characterized by its functionality, versatility, and ease-of-use, can be deployed with an unparalleled capability on nearly any crew-served weapon, delivering critical ballistic protection for a broad range of applications. It is a logical, cost-effective solution for enhancing battlefield survivability and warfighter confidence.

Typical Applications:

  • Mounted Weapons (Land-Vehicles, ATVs, Watercraft, and Aircraft)
  • Force Protection
  • Guard Towers
  • Checkpoints
  • Sniper Applications
  • Other Fixed Firing Positions
