"All ATS Armor hard body armor plates have been designed and manufactured to meet or exceed U.S. Military and NIJ performance standards.  At ATS Armor, we design our plates through a rigorous scientific approach. We refer to this approach as "EDMA", Electronic Design Mechanical Analysis. Partnered with some of the leading minds in material analysis and structural design, ATS Armor models ballistic protection through testing and simulation from the onset of design. The use of EDMA allows efficiencies in both research and development and yields successfully tailored ballistic designs on virtually the first attempt.  EDMASM, coupled with our unique QuadCurve design, has enabled ATS Armor to apply for several US Patents" continued Mr. Smith
