Saint-Gobain recently completed delivery of multiple sets of sapphire transparent armor windows for integration into armored vehicles for government use. "Saint-Gobain has developed a new window laminate system based on large sapphire sheet. The sapphire production is done at our Milford, N.H., facility. This system makes our new sapphire transparent armor windows very competitive for this important application," said Jeff Rioux, market manager for Saint-Gobain Crystals. "Saint-Gobain is the only producer of transparent ceramic material that offers complete laminated systems to withstand multiple hits by armor-piercing threats."
