FRAGMENTARY ARMOR KIT
PACKAGING DESIGN AND CONSTRUCTION
CIMA's Proven Expertise in Military Contract Jobs
CIMA, with its rich history of successful military contract work and specialized packaging solutions, was entrusted with a critical mission - the packaging of Frag 5 Armor Kits. This included the intricate design and construction of custom containers, tailored to meet the highest standards of protection and security.
The project involved a significant production run, with 13,200 meticulously packaged armor kits, each destined for deployment on HMMWV (High Mobility Multipurpose Wheeled Vehicle), commonly known as the Humvee, in combat zones.
The US Army's Fragmentary Armor Kit Program: A Response to Emerging Threats
The US Army's Fragmentary Armor Kit program emerged as a crucial response to the evolving security landscape. It was developed as a direct successor to the Add-On-Armor program initiated in 2004. This development was driven by the mounting recognition of the vulnerability of US military wheeled vehicles to insurgent attacks, particularly those involving improvised explosive devices (IEDs).
These vulnerabilities affected not only vehicles intended for direct combat but also those dedicated to combat support and combat service support. The Fragmentary Armor Kit program aimed to address these critical security concerns and provide enhanced protection for military personnel and assets operating in challenging and high-risk environments.
CIMA's involvement in packaging Frag 5 Armor Kits stands as a testament to our unwavering commitment to excellence, our deep understanding of military requirements, and our dedication to contributing to the safety and security of US military operations.
