Established in 2012, Salvo Defense is a full service contract designer and manufacturer of a wide array of products across all divisions. The portfolio includes personal protective equipment (PPE), electro-optic components and assemblies, as well as sensing and imaging platforms with a focus on multispectral systems. The company produces high-end equipment and gear for military and police forces, with an emphasis on innovative materials and designs that solve problems others can’t.

Salvo Defense functions as the R&D arm of the Salvo Technologies Inc. group of companies. Next to its deep well of engineering talent, perhaps the company’s biggest strength is its ability to draw on the skills and production capabilities of its sister business units like Salvo Coatings for thin- and thick-films, Salvo EO to build optical assemblies, and 4D Tactical to test pilot production of new PPE. It can also leverage the sales organizations of the other business units to conceptualize new products and beta test with customers, and to provide global distribution of the result. All products are manufactured in the United States.
