USIS GUIRAO, an importer of products by the world’s leading brands for the police and the military, will be showing all its new products at SICUR 2020 including the flagship ballistic helmet from Busch PROtective USA. The AMP-1 TP helmet system, designed specifically for Federal and Domestic law enforcement and public safety applications, has successfully passed the new DEA-FBI Ballistic Helmet Protocol, in addition to already meeting National Institute of Justice (NIJ) Level IIIA and VPAM-3 standards.

The new Protocol, released in 2019, focuses on real-world ballistic performance, including improved penetration testing, hot & cold severe conditioning, less than 1-inch edge protection, and significantly limiting energy transfer during a ballistic event.

“Harnessing state-of-the-art technology and extensive research & development, we were able to deliver the ballistic helmet that met the mission-critical needs of the DEA, FBI, U.S. Marshals Service, and ATF,” said Scott Wyatt, President of Busch PROtective USA.
