3M™ Defense Protection Systems

3M is setting a new standard for light weight armor solutions, engineered to meet a variety of threats. The Enhanced Combat Helmet (ECH) manufactured by Ceradyne, Inc., a 3M company, has been shown to provide over 35% improved ballistic fragmentation protection at a similar weight to the currently fielded Advanced Combat Helmet (ACH). Now in use by the U.S. Marine Corps, Army and Navy, the Enhanced Combat Helmet is designed to help protect military personnel against head injury from ballistic threats and blunt impacts.
