KDH Defense Systems (“KDH”) and Armor Express, both wholly-owned subsidiaries of Praesidium, are recognized as one of the leading suppliers of protective armor solutions in the world. For the past 15 years, KDH has consistently delivered innovative, high-quality products, ranging from the Interceptor Outer Tactical Vest (OTV) to each generation of the Improved Outer Tactical Vest (IOTV Gen I, II, III and IV). More recently, with awards from the U.S. Armed Forces, we are proud to serve as one of the primary suppliers of “next generation” body armor systems, including the Soldier Protection System – Modular Scalable Vest (SPS-MSV), the Blast Pelvic Protector (SPS-BPP), the Ultra-Low Visibility Concealable Body Armor (ULV-CBA) System and the Light Air Warrior System (LAWS). Through our seven-year contract with the United States Department of Homeland Security, we have a host of carrier solutions, ballistic packages and hard armor plates that meet the mission-critical needs of this prestigious agency and the divisions within.
