Increase passenger protection with Skydex Convoy Deck life-saving technology.

 

SKYDEX is a patented cushioning and protective material that adds energy absorption and vibration dampening properties to diverse products ranging from blast mitigating flooring in the latest military vehicle to cushioning in athletic or combat training wall pads. Each application is tuned for the specific use required by our customers.

 

Today, driven by its mission of Protecting Things That Matter, SKYDEX is a rapidly growing, trusted and environmentally responsible partner to the U.S. military, delivering high-performance solutions for our men and women in uniform. SKYDEX proprietary protective technology is an application-specific survivability and performance enhancement solution designed for six key benefits: blast limiting, ballistic, impact mitigation, vibration absorption, cushioning, and sound damping.

 

Applications
With its engineering-grade resins and patent-protected geometric shapes and arrangements, SKYDEX can be modified to customer requirements to provide a wide range of benefits including impact mitigation, vibration attenuation, sound damping, and cushioning. SKYDEX technology was initially used in the development of consumer and commercial protective solutions, including athletic footwear components, protective matting for playgrounds, and impact-absorbing padding in football helmets. After developing additional technology and manufacturing expertise, and at the request of the U.S. military, SKYDEX began developing sophisticated injury-reducing, life-saving, and performance-enhancing solutions for warfighters.

SKYDEX offers customized products by engineering variations within the SKYDEX geometries – using either shape, material composition, volume of plastic or layout within the part. Our technology can be tuned to offer increased durability, reduced volume, easier cleaning, and lighter weight than comparative energy absorbing technologies. More on Tuning SKYDEX Technology

Convoy Deck
Convoy Deck, blast mitigation for armored vehicles, uses SKYDEX’s patented opposing hemisphere technology that absorbs energy caused by violent forces or explosions. Used today in most military armored vehicles,including the MRAP and M-ATV, SKYDEX blast mitigating flooring has been shown to reduce vehicle occupant injuries during IED attacks.

Key features include:

  • Increased passenger protection
  • Durable, multi-impact materials and design
  • Customized to fit current vehicle designs
  • Meets FMVSS302 and M67854-11-R-5012
