The DS-180 series is certified by HP White Labs to NIJ Level III and meets the US Department of State standard DS-STD-01.01.
The DS-180, caster mounted DS-181, and ATV-style tire equipped DS-182's are designed to protect security forces in locations where the highest level of threat exists, including terrorist activity. It is the only mobile, full coverage and full field of view, ballistic resistant tool on the market.
Offering up to 12 square feet of viewing area in a mobile package, the DS-180 series offers protection to the military, anti-terrorism teams, combat groups and observers, infrastructure security guards and anyone else who may come under the threat of hostile sniper rifle fire or terrorist attacks. The DS-180 series is particularly effective for use at fortified ECP's and overwatch positions.
When a soldier, guard, observer or negotiator is behind a Defenshield MDFP, they become the highest form of deterrence.
Custom sized units are also available.
