Morgan Advanced Materials lightweight body and vehicle armour technology and its fire insulation products help to protect civilian, military and naval personnel around the world, and its ceramic components are used in surveillance equipment and sonar systems.
Morgan Advanced Materials has provided precision-engineered materials, components and assemblies to meet the exacting standards of the international defence and security markets for several decades. From military hardware to surveillance equipment and armour for personnel and vehicle protection, our superior materials technology and impressive manufacturing capability deliver real performance benefits in the field.
As a global leader in lightweight armour systems we have an unparalleled record in rapid fielding of new equipment in support of defence programs around the world.
Our ceramic materials are used extensively in armour systems that are designed to meet the classified ballistic performance requirements of each individual customer.
We make lightweight, heavy duty fire protection systems for commercial and naval vessels; the fireMaster® system is certified to meet most national and international military standards. And we are at the forefront of improving security systems at border controls, where our custom ceramic and metal assemblies are used to improve the image resolution of luggage and cargo scanners and our Diamonex™ diamond-like-carbon coatings are used in fingerprint swipe sensors.
We are a critical resource supplier to the UK Ministry of Defence and have supplied tactical wheeled vehicles and equipment for use in Iraq and Afghanistan. We are designated a tier 2 supplier of ceramic body armour plates to the US Department of Defense.
We provide comprehensive fleet management and support services for defence and security vehicles from design of the armour system to manufacture, installation and spares provisioning. We also repair and refurbish vehicles in theatre or upon return.
Our piezoceramic components are highly versatile, stable and durable, even in challenging operating conditions making them ideal for use in custom sensor and transducer systems. We are a major supplier to the manufacturers of power tubes used in image intensifiers, electronic counter-measures and communications equipment.
Our rotary transfer products are specified for their high reliability for use in military vehicles operating in the harshest conditions, such as tanks turret systems, specialist robotic mine detectors and helicopter rotors. They are also used in radar systems.
