Safariland, a BAE Systems line of business, announced that it has completed delivery of ballistic protection kits to Gladding-Hearn Shipbuilding for use on each of 12 U.S. Navy escort vessels. The 64-ft Screening Escort Vessels (SEV) will be operated by the U.S. Coast Guard for securing high-value naval assets.

The ballistic protection kits were manufactured under Safariland’s Protech line of Armor Systems, and provide lightweight, superior ballistic performance. The ballistic protection kits for the SEV will enable protection against harsh environments for long-term serviceability.  The SEVs will be built by Gladding-Hearn Shipbuilding. Protech ballistic protection kits will provide the end user with high performance protection against a variety of threats, which is essential for Homeland Security, law enforcement, and military vessels.
