Leveraging proprietary technology, BlastGard International, Inc. (OTC: BLGA) delivers body armor and blast protection options in response to rising incidence of terrorist attacks. Among many corporate highlights are the company’s connections and sales history with a number of agencies, including the Department of Defense and Department of Homeland Security. “The Florida-headquartered company has developed a line of products to protect people and property from explosive blasts. It also provides products that offer protection from projectiles. BlastGard’s protective gear includes shields, helmets, vests and plates, which provide police with the protective gear they need to do their jobs. … BlastGard expects that, as police departments become more militarized, demand for its products and services will grow. As threats of all kinds multiply, there is mounting evidence of the emergence of a new kind of police officer, the Warrior Cop, resulting from the integration of tactical, SWAT, and special operations within the law enforcement environment. This trend is likely to fuel demand for body armor with higher protection levels and lower areal densities and designs that provide more mobility and comfort, including helmets. Areal density gives an indication of the energy absorption capability of the protective material and is computed as the weight of the armored panel in grams per square meter divided by the protection area of the panel.”
