Upgrade your ballistic kit by adding protection to your head with the Busch Protective AMP-1 TP Ballistic Helmet. The AMP-1 TP is a lightweight composite helmet with VPAM certification. VPAM is considered the Gold Standard for Germany, Austria and Switzerland and is comparable to the NIJ certification levels in the United States.
Most Special Police units within Europe, including Germany’s GSG9 and SEK are required to have their ballistic helmets VPAM certified. Police Specialized units around the world deserve a level of protection that includes first-rate specifications (VPAM Standard). This standard, in comparison to the NIJ IIIA, tests certain ballistic aspects that are more relevant/specific to close quarter combat situations.
Police special units/SWAT Teams, in comparison to soldiers, are more likely to suffer a ballistic head injury due to the nature of their work (Close Quarter Combat). Whereby, even today most helmets used by police armed response teams are helmets that are manufactured for military operations. These types of ballistic helmets may not provide the specific level of protection required by Law Enforcement officers dealing with armed suspects in close quarters.
