US Global Aerospace, Inc. announced today that it has been conducting intensive live-fire testing of the company's S.A.G.(TM) ('Save A Gunner' (TM)) Turret System in a secure facility. USGA has been testing the S.A.G.(TM) Turret against 9 mm, 7.62 mm, 5.65 mm and 12.7mm/.50 caliber ammunition in both conventional military and armor piercing configurations in order to provide the highest levels of ballistic protection for US Armed Forces.
