Armoured Vehicles and Aeronautics

Composite materials have also been a game-changer in the defense industry, particularly in the development of armored vehicles, aeronautics, personal equipment, and constructions. They offer exceptional performance in terms of strength, durability, and weight, making them an ideal choice for a range of applications. In armored vehicles and aeronautics, the STANAG 4569 standard has been developed to classify ballistic protection levels from 1 to 4. Composite materials have been widely used to meet these standards, providing a high level of protection while keeping the weight of the vehicle or aircraft at a minimum. The Urovesa is an excellent example of a vehicle fitted with composite armor developed by BeyondComposite, providing an additional layer of protection against ballistic threats.


In constructions, composite materials have been developed to meet various NIJ Standard-0108.01 levels, such as III, IIIA, III+, and IV. The CompactShield is a ballistic plate specifically designed for use in urban environments with civil risks. It has been developed to meet the most demanding markets' protection needs for people. Similarly, polyurethane and polyurea-based products have been developed to provide an effective solution for structural reinforcement, blast protection, and ballistic protection.

Personal Equipment

In personal equipment, composite materials have been used to develop ballistic helmets, knee pads, and other protective gear. The Ballistic Helmet NIJ Standard 0108.01 Level IIIA is a prime example of composite materials' application in personal protective equipment. It has been designed to offer a high level of protection against ballistic threats while being lightweight and comfortable to wear. Similarly, knee pads developed to ISO 20344 standards provide an effective solution for protecting the lower limbs against impact.
