The AMP-1 TP is the First & Lightest Composite Helmet with VPAM (HVN-2009) Certification in the world. VPAM is the Gold Standard of ballistic testing certification within Germany, Austria, and Switzerland. Most Special Police Units within Europe, including Germany’s GSG9 and SEK are required to have their ballistic helmets VPAM certified. Law Enforcement, Anti-Terror, and Police Specialized Units around the world, deserve the level of protection that gives them first-rate protection (VPAM Standard). The VPAM certification compared to other test standards, uses a more realistic ballistic testing aspect which is specific to close quarter combat threats that Law Enforcement Officers or Anti-Terror Units will be exposed to during operations. These specialized units, in comparison to soldiers, are more exposed to the likelihood of being shot within the head region, whilst working in confined spaces due to the proximity and nature of their work. Sadly, even today, most helmets used by Law Enforcement and First Response Teams are helmets manufactured for military operations. The Best deserve the Best!
When it comes to first-rate head protection that meets the mission-critical requirements of today’s Officers Agents, the latest ballistic helmet innovations must offer extreme stopping power, flexibility and reduced weight. This is reinforced by officers/agents having to maneuver in confined spaces due to the proximity and nature of their work or increasingly hostile environments as they execute more search warrants and respond to close-quarter active shooter events and standoffs – all of which demand the use of specialized body armor equipment.
Having a ballistic helmet that meets current National Institute of Justice (“NIJ”), Drug Enforcement Administration (“DEA”) and even Federal Bureau of Investigation (“FBI”) Ballistic Helmet Testing Protocols is paramount to agencies’ needs – especially one designed to reduce blunt force trauma. The Busch PROtective AMP-1 TP from Armor Express is designed to provide advanced head protection with extraordinary resistance to backface deformation. Simply put, the helmet’s new technology takes a giant step in solving the challenge of stopping bullets while decreasing the impact to the helmet which could cause severe injury and risk of death.
