SEDCOR recently learned that HIT, a local firm with expertise in military and protective infrastructure, ends the year with international contracts in four more countries. HIT has now licensed BattleJacket® technology to Poland, the United Kingdom, South Africa and Canada so that local firms in those countries can create a unique product that protects soldiers and first responders. HIT has a facility in Salem.


Recently completed product qualification tests by the Polish military included a public review of its performance in front of 100 people, with live bullets and a two week review period.


Beginning November 15 the Oregon firm delivered its first “technology transfer package” to a manufacturing facility in Gloucester, England. This included exporting training, equipment and material that results in a protective lining that assists in keeping fuel tanks from exploding when shot by bullets. HIT’s BattleJacket® creates a self-sealing/self-healing membrane layer that keeps a tanker from spilling gas and potentially exploding.


HIT now has military and private sector clients in nine countries licensed to apply their system for human, vehicle and infrastructure protection. The United States Army used 10,000 drums of product over 10 years.
