Defense Capabilities

Defense Design 

Advancements in technology and design give our U.S. military the competitive edge. Because U.S. combat soldiers typically carry more than 80 pounds of equipment with them, they have to be sure that the items will work properly when needed, are durable enough to withstand harsh conditions, and are designed with safety and efficiency in mind.  

The best design for defense  

At Phillips-Medisize, we design and deliver innovative solutions for the defense market by producing components and turnkey solutions that meet ergonomic and environmental requirements in the field. We provide defense product design and prototyping services using a wide range of materials and methods to meet the strictest requirements for performance, durability and weight.
