Deploy-and-protect anywhere, anytime

The ATCS Shield’s patented design is based on origami (the ancient art of paper folding) principles that enable it to collapse down to the size of a notebook for storage. The ATCS Shield instantly unfolds to provide six square-feet of light-weight, NIJ Level IIIA ballistic protection.


From Ancient Art to Advanced Technology

The innovative origami design is based on research conducted and patents filed by members of the Compliant Mechanisms Research Group (CMR) at Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah. 


The armor plating is made of specially processed ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene materials. The Hypalon® (chlorosulfonated polyethylene) exterior provides a chemical resistant, waterproof and flexible yet firm covering that can be provided in a variety of colors or patterns. Rated at NIJ Level IIIA, the shield provides protection against most common threats.

Light Weight

Weighing in at only 5 to 8 pounds, the ATCS Shield provides ease-of-use without hindering movement. It is easy for anyone to use and move quickly. Utilizing the most advanced materials combined with state-of-the art manufacturing processes helps to ensure that the ATCS Shield is as light as possible.

Portability and Deployment

Patented technology enables rapid deployment with small storage footprint. The instant, portable ballistic barrier folds out to a fully deployed size of 24” x 36” (60.96 x 91.44 cm). It gives you six square feet of instant protection.

First Responder-TV Names Tactical Product of the Year

After seeing thousands of amazing tactical products from hundreds of tactical companies at Shot Show this year, by unanimously vote, First Responder-TV has named ATCS as Tactical Product of the Year at Shot Show 2020. 

“The ATCS Shield is a real game-changer for the Law Enforcement community,” say Executive Producer Bill Rogers from First Responder-TV. “This will add a level of protection to police at one of the most vulnerable times during an incident – when they are leaving the protection of the squad car while responding to a hostile event,” adds Rogers.
