D3O partner Morgan Advanced Materials, a world leader in the application of advanced composite material technology, has approved the D3O® TRUST high-performance padding system into its ultra-lightweight combat helmet portfolio, the LASA AC914 and LASA AC915.

The D3O® TRUST helmet liner system is engineered using patented composite materials. The seven-piece system, which exceeds required Advanced Combat Helmet (ACH) protection levels by 33% at 10ft/sec, has now been used by Morgan to complement its ballistic helmet shell technology.

Morgan’s LASA AC914 and LASA AC915 ballistic helmets are manufactured using proprietary ultra-lightweight, composite hybrid technology, which provides structure, durability and a level of protection at weights significantly lower than previously available. The helmets are an outcome of over three years of materials and product development at Morgan’s Ballistics Centre of Excellence.

Weighing in at 1.25kg for a full cut LASA AC914 helmet and 1.15kg for a high cut LASA AC915 variant, these composite hybrid helmets are 7.5% lighter than a typical ACH with 10% enhanced 17gr FSP performance (735m/s). Built for comfort and endurance, the D3O® TRUST helmet pad system exceeds all regulatory performance standards and is recognised as the most durable and comfortable solution on the global market.
