Ballistic Engineering

When it comes to confidently procuring comprehensive armoring solutions, standalone tests provide only the minimum level of reliability. That’s why all O’Gara products are tested and certified according to specific ballistic and explosive requirements, under the direction of independent third-party test laboratories or at our on-premises range, which features:

  • Shooting lanes
  • Fixed firearm barrels:  22 caliber to 20mm FSP
  • Environmental chambers
  • UV-visual lights spectrometer
  • Hardness testers (Brinell and Rockwell C)
  • High-speed video capability
Additionally, O’Gara maintains one of the largest ballistics databases in the industry.  Our ballistic engineers review this data, along with in-house direct fire test data and third party test data to select materials capable of meeting or exceeding specified ballistic and blast requirements while also giving consideration to weight, cost and material availability.
