Company Introduces Foldable Ballistic Shield

January 21, 2020 — ATCS (Advanced Technology Compliant Solutions) recently introduced a new solution in personal ballistic protection: the Swift Shield. The patented design is based on origami (the ancient art of paper folding) principles that enable it to collapse down to the size of a notebook for storage.

When needed, the Swift Shield instantly unfolds to a 2 x 3-ft. shield, providing six sq. ft. of light-weight, NIJ Level IIIA ballistic protection. The shield is being unveiled at the SHOT Show, booth 32009, with strategic partner, AEGIX Global, who will be selling and marketing the Swift Shield into the law enforcement space.

“The world has seen very little practical evolution in body armor since the introduction of Kevlar nearly 50 years ago,” said William Benz, President and CEO of ATCS. “The Swift Shield provides new options to protect those who put their lives on the line in the service of society every day.”

But sometimes, a latent print is not just sitting there in a logical and obvious place. Sometimes, you have to use your imagination to find the print and your skills to lift it.
