next generation technology
forged under fire

DARKMATTER technology debuted in our Energy Dispersal Pads—the future of ballistic trauma protection.

Designed for warfighters, law enforcement, and first responders, these standalone ballistic trauma pads work in conjunction with ballistic armor to reduce kinetic energy transfer and mitigate back face deformation (BFD), protecting against impact-related injuries—while also improving fitment and comfort.

DARKMATTER also offers Direct Armor Integration to armor manufacturers through our EDGE development program. This process bonds DARKMATTER directly to armor plates, adding the protection and comfort benefits of our standalone pads and empowering the development of thinner, lighter and more effective ballistic armor.

DARKMATTER Energy Dispersal Pads are a great addition to my kit. Very lightweight, and I love the added comfort. They provide additional protection and peace of mind for law enforcement officers in uncertain times.
