Lockheed Martin signs agreement with Ceradyne for Tekshield armor

  • 20-Aug-2010 03:32 EDT

Lockheed Martin has signed a nonexclusive licensing agreement with Ceradyne Inc. for the development, manufacture, and application of the Lockheed Martin-developed TekShield lightweight, opaque ceramic armor. TekShield can protect soldiers against coupled threat effects common in urban tactical environments, such as bomb blasts followed by a swarm of projectiles or armor-piercing sniper fire. The system’s ceramic design represents a new generation of protection that is affordable and lightweight. TekShield armor technology can scale to meet specific threats, from small-caliber rifles and mid-range cannons to IEDs and other explosive devices. The technology can be developed for opaque, transparent, and semi-reactive applications, depending on customer needs.
