M Cubed Technologies Wins Contract to Develop Armor for U.S. Marine Corps Fighting Vehicles

TRUMBULL, Conn. -- The United States Navy has awarded M Cubed Technologies, Inc. a contract to develop advanced, high-performance, lightweight armor for the Marine Corps` Expeditionary Fighting Vehicle (EFV), the company announced today.

The contract was part of the U.S. Navy's Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) program.

"We are honored the U.S. Navy has chosen us for this important project," said Randall D. Price, Sr., CEO and President of M Cubed. "New and ever-changing threats require constant innovation and improvement in body and vehicle armor. The mission of our defense business is to utilize M Cubed's breakthrough ceramic technology to equip U.S. military personnel with state-of-the-art armor that provides maximum protection for our troops."

The Marine Corps EFV is a 78,000+ pound armored vehicle designed to carry U.S. combat forces over harsh terrain, both off-road and amphibiously. The contract provides the initial funding for the development of new, ceramic-based armor that will offer the U.S. Marines and their EFVs better protection against enemy ballistics, enhanced survivability in combat areas and reduced weight for greater maneuverability.

M Cubed's unique technology allows the company to design and manufacture armor-grade ceramics in very complex shapes to suit a wide variety of military applications, including body armor, helmet appliques and armor for aircraft and vehicles. The company has a long history as a trusted supplier to the U.S. military.
