Bourque receives NIJ testing number for Terminator Fat Boy for Level III armor certification

>PRWEB.COM Newswire

Tucson, Ariz. (PRWEB) September 01, 2011

Bourque Industries, Inc. (OTC:BORK) today announced that the National Institute of Justice (NIJ) has accepted the Company's application and technical data sheets and has issued a testing number for Bourque's Terminator Fat Boy Level III standalone armor, paving the way for anticipated NIJ certification at a future date. The NIJ testing number is BII11-001871.

The next step is standardized ballistic testing at Oregon Ballistics Laboratories, where the plate will be subjected to weathering and live-fire testing. The Fat Boy plates will be required to defeat six 7.62x51 FMJ 147 grain rounds within a specified back-face deformation requirement. Bourque will be conducting a similar test at a live demonstration September 1 at Fort Bragg for invited military guests.

“This is an exceedingly important milestone for Bourque Industries,” said John M. Bourque, inventor of Kryron and CEO of Bourque. “Our Terminator Fat Boy armor has met and exceeded NIJ specifications over and over again in public, documented demonstrations. Now that our technical specifications have been accepted, we're looking forward to proving the quality of our armor in NIJ live-fire testing.”
