Composite Panels for Blast and Ballistic Protection

panel_installation.jpg

The Modular Ballistic Protection System (MBPS) provides soldiers with enhanced ballistic protection where it never existed before – in their tents where they work, eat, and sleep.  The system consists of composite ballistic panels that are mounted to the inside of the tent frame using an energy-absorbing connection system.  Requiring no tools, the MBPS can be used to up-armor a 20ft x 32ft tent in less than 30 minutes with 4 soldiers.

Fire Resistant Cellulose Insulation

Cellulose-fire-resistant

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

End users and installers of insulation want a product that is affordable, efficient and safe. Cellulose insulation, generally produced from recycled wood fiber, is affordable and outperforms fiberglass in extreme weather. But cellulose has poor insect resistance and fire retardant qualities without the addition of toxic chemicals.  Additionally, the cellulose insulation  manufacturing process currently used creates a product prone to settling, which is bad for the homeowner, and dust, which is bad for the installer.  ProCell Insulation solves all of these problems, making it a very attractive choice compared to fiberglass and other cellulose insulation brands.

The technology was developed at UMaine in collaboration with the company founders.  Company is currently developing manufacturing and distribution networks. Learn more at procellinsulation.com
