SCHOTT North America (SCHOTT) and Dynamic Defense Holdings LLC (DDH), of Boothwyn, Pa., have formed a joint venture company, DiamondView(TM) Armor Products LLC (DAP), which will produce glass-ceramic armor materials and systems. DDH will be the 51% majority shareholder of the new company.
SCHOTT will supply its high-quality glass-ceramic products to the joint venture. DDH will use its proprietary lamination and design technology to produce cutting-edge armor systems for the defense and security industries. The products produced by the joint venture will provide transparent and opaque armor systems for personal, vehicular, architectural and other applications.
John Carberry, CEO of DDH, said, "We are humbled and excited by the opportunity we have to improve vehicle survivability with DiamondView products. These products offer the armed forces dramatically improved night vision visibility, superior multi-hit capacity with reduced weight, and lower life cycle cost, and will provide our soldiers with a less dangerous way to accomplish their important missions."
Glass-ceramic armor produced by the joint venture offers several unique benefits, including a significant reduction in weight for transparent vehicular armor as compared to standard windows used today. Additionally, the product offers UV filtering and a resistance to thermal cycling and will be produced by the joint venture as a 'ready to install' system for each unique vehicle type.
"DiamondView is positioned to become a market-leader in armor systems. We are proud to be able to play a part in creating products that will make it safer for our armed forces to operate," said Scott Custer, Executive Vice President, SCHOTT Defense.
