Defenshield - Additional MDFPs to Iraq and Afghanistan


Strict Standards: Only variables should be passed by reference in /home/defensef/public_html/components/com_zone/handleHTML.php on line 623
Defenshield
: 17 April, 2008  (Application Story)
Additional shipments of Defenshield Mobile Defensive Fighting Positions (MDFPs) are on their way to support U.S. Marine operations in Iraq and Afghanistan. There are now over 500 MDFPs deployed in the Middle East, protecting soldiers in the war effort.
Hassle-free processing through GSA Advantage! allowed the Joint Contracting Command Iraq/Afghanistan to issue a one-click order and receive the in-stock DS-192 units with a minimal lead time of less than three weeks.

Marine combat engineers are using Defenshield MDFPs along side earth-filled HESCO barriers and plywood construction to fortify entry control points. The MDFPs provide excellent visibility of approaching threats while still maintaining the highest level protection available in a mobile, stand-alone device. Units currently in use by the Marines have ATV-style tires which allow the MDFPs to be easily reconfigured for optimal positioning.

The Defenshield product line is available through the GSA Schedule (GS-07F-5660P) to all federal agencies and to state, local, and municipal law enforcement under the Justice Department 1122 program. Additional funding is available through the DHS Homeland Security Grant Program (HSGP).
