3M Co. has introduced a new combat helmet designed to help soldiers survive an expanded number of ballistic threats during combat.
It’s part of an effort to produce the next level of safety products for soldiers.
With enhanced ceramics, the new Combat II Ballistic Helmet L110 can help protect servicemembers from bomb fragmentations, blunt impacts, certain rifle projectiles and more.
The upgrades offer the highest ballistic protection offerings to date from 3M, the Maplewood-based company that has supplied the U.S. Army, Navy and Marine Corps with more than 114,000 helmets in recent years.
