LAST Armor (Light-appliqué Armor Systems Technology) is an advanced composite add-on armor solution that provides high-performance ballistic protection to military aircraft and the flight crew. Our LAST Armor technology is used by 16 allied countries and installed in over 40 different aircraft platforms deployed around the world.

Since 1995, LAST Armor has provided ultimate protection from small arms fire on hundreds of C-130J, C-130E/H C-5, and C-17s including several other aircraft platforms. Utilizing unique, high-performance material, LAST Armor outperforms traditional materials like steel, aluminum, nylon and polyesters. Formulas are tailored to defeat primary small arms threats and higher caliber munitions at stand-off distance. LAST Armor features a superb attachment system–five times stronger than commercial products.

LAST Armor can be applied to fixed and rotary wing/vertical lift aircraft.  Both modular and permanent solutions can be easily installed by the flight crew and without tools. The armor kits can be easily rotated between aircraft–enabling rapid application, removal and replacement of armor protection right in the field.
