Innovative seaming technologies have allowed for consistent, reliable, and incredibly strong bonding of advanced lightweight ultra-strong materials. Kennon Products has leveraged this technology with in-house engineering, design, and manufacturing knowhow to produce an advanced Life Preserver Unit for the Navy, referred to as LPU-21FCL. Our unit is 25% lighter and 50% less bulky than the incumbent with enhanced reliability, safety, and ergonomics. The result is a system that meets all performance requirements while increasing warfighter mobility and survivability. Our goal is to utilize these new materials and advanced seaming technology to replace LPUs across other branches of the military as well as expand into larger structures such as life rafts or inflatable structures where immense weight and size savings will be realized while still providing a reliable, durable, and mission ready product.
Kennon’s aircraft armor system is built on patented technology that greatly increases damage tolerance and multi-hit capability, as verified through prototype testing. The armor’s damage isolation allows it to retain the majority of its structural integrity after impact - permitting its use as a load-bearing structure that can both line cabin walls and be integrated into flooring panels. Low weight and intrusion profile allow the armor to be used for nearly all missions. While the initial target platform is the V-22, core armor structures can easily be adapted to other air, land, and sea vehicles. Kennon is a research, design, and manufacturing company dedicated to protecting high-value assets. Our goal is to provide armor systems for all aircraft and vehicles operating in contested areas/hostile environments.
