(OTC-BB: PBSOQ.PK), a leader in the field of protective body armor solutions, today announced that its wholly owned subsidiary, Point Blank Body Armor ("PBBA") has been awarded a contract valued at approximately $100,000 to supply over 200, NIJ .06, Vision® Level IIIA concealable body armor systems.  The contract was awarded by the Department of the Air Force, Air Force Material Command and production will begin immediately.

Patrick Stallings, COL USA Ret., executive vice president, DoD operations stated, "The Air Force based this competitive solicitation on our Vision series due to the unique properties of our system, namely, temperature-regulating technologies and antimicrobial electroshock protection, which are differentiating technologies our company offers to all customer segments.  This order in particular, is meaningful for our organization as it is the first Service buy of our new NIJ .06 technology and also demonstrates how commercial products can be used for both military and government missions."

Vision is the first Total Body Armor System that integrates Hi-Performance ballistic materials with an innovative carrier design featuring temperature regulating technologies (Outlast® Adaptive Comfort® Technology), antimicrobial protection and Point Blank's excusive Self-Suspending Ballistic System™, which provides optimal protective coverage.  These innovations result in significantly cooler, dryer and more comfortable all-day performance.  Additionally, Vision offers the lightest weight ballistic protection available today.  For further information, please visit us at http://www.pointblanksolutionsinc.com/pointblankarmor_com/lawEnforcement/visionMale.php.

Stallings continued, "One of the key factors we believe resulted in the award was the proven performance of our ballistic systems, particularly for the commercial markets and the US Army, as well as our ability to deliver these vests to the US Air Force within 30 days.  We've made significant enhancements in our manufacturing footprint, which has resulted in the fastest delivery times in the industry.  All the while, we continue to focus on driving innovation and improving ballistic performance to support all American military service members in their missions."
