Research and Development

Over the years TAS has led the way in cutting edge research and development. By continuing to invest in the development of future lightweight transparent armor we have placed ourselves at the forefront of this technology.
TAS partner with OEM’s to carry out new product development for their future platforms. We also work on government R&D programs including SBIR, DARPA, JASP, TARDEC, ARL, SOCOM and other government programs.

Our team can program management the entire development over the various phases and or/years. This includes concept, CAD and drawings, prototype production, ballistic and environmental testing and then commercialization.

New products that TAS has recently delivered include;

  • TAS1411 – proprietary anti-delamination interlayer
  • Gemini armor for rotorcraft
  • Modular Gemini armor for tactical vehicles
  • 27% weight reduction in transparent armor without using expensive transparent ceramics
  • Introduction of new materials for use in transparent armor that are both affordable and have manufacturability

TAS partners with leading research universities, government agencies and independent R&D organizations in our efforts. If you have a project that you would like to discuss and require a partner, then contact us.
