October 1st, 2012

Defenshield showcased it latest product development project at the Association of the United States Army (AUSA) Annual Meeting and Exposition in Washington DC. The STEGO® Modular Armor System demonstration was a huge success with members of the United States force protection community and foreign customers.

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. The system’s built-in framework design enables the user to assemble the desired configuration in minutes providing instant protection with the placement of the first block.
