Created in collaboration with the U.S. Armed Forces, the STEGO® Modular Armor System was designed to provide ballistic protection in constantly changing threat environments. STEGO® enables security team members or fielded troops to create Tactical Operations Centers (TOC), safe houses, bunkers and other positions that are protected against rifle rounds up to NIJ Level IV 30-06 AP.
STEGO® is a self-supporting, modular armor system built using a variety of blocks which are connected using attached detent pins. This design enables the user to assemble the desired configuration in minutes.
A standard STEGO® kit consists of 60 blocks and can be transported by truck or trailer. Each kit contains four types of blocks to maximize the system's capabilities and versatility in the field.
If an application warrants, window, weapons port, and armor blocks may be used separately away from other kit components.
With an understanding that the needs of troops and security personnel vary across environments and applications, the STEGO® Modular Armor System can be assembled in a variety of physical configurations. Standard assemblies are 12 blocks wide by 5 blocks high, and blocks can be configured at angles ranging from 90 to 180 degrees.
