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.
