Saab ac­quires bal­lis­tic com­pany Soft Ar­mour


De­fence and se­cu­rity com­pany Saab (Stock­holm, Swe­den) has pur­chased the rights to the pro­tec­tion tech­nol­ogy Soft Ar­mour, and as­so­ci­ated as­sets, from pro­tec­tion tech­nol­ogy com­pany Pro­tau­rius AB (Mol­ndal, Swe­den). The ac­qui­si­tion is the first step into the field of bal­lis­tic pro­tec­tion tech­nol­ogy. Soft Ar­mour is a patented tech­nol­ogy that uses a spher­i­cal ce­ramic ma­te­rial to pro­tect peo­ple and sen­si­tive equip­ment from fine cal­i­bre and ar­mour-pierc­ing am­mu­ni­tion. Soft Ar­mour is self-heal­ing and can with­stand mul­ti­ple hits in the same area. It can also be used in con­struc­tion so­lu­tions, such as walls, shields and soft cov­er­ings.

“The ac­qui­si­tion of the rights to Soft Ar­mour is a com­ple­ment to our wide prod­uct port­fo­lio within ad­vanced cam­ou­flage. We are now ex­pand­ing our in­vest­ment in this type of prod­uct in both mil­i­tary and civil seg­ments,” says Anders Wi­man, Man­ag­ing Di­rec­tor of Saab Bar­racuda.
