T3 Motion, the global leader in the design and delivery of electric vehicles and tactical technology to the law enforcement, military, and security markets, has seen its sales of the revolutionary T3 Motion TG-7 Ballistic Vest Pad Inserts rise since its launch into the market in Q2 of 2016.
The T3 Motion TG-7 Pads are a proprietary, non-Newtonian fluid designed to reduce the soft-tissue impact of bullet strikes when used underneath a standard Kevlar Level IIIA bulletproof vest.

In less than six short months since their debut, multiple public safety agencies in five states have purchased the innovative T3 Motion TG-7 Ballistic Vest Impact Pads.
The innovative T3 Motion TG-7 Pads are designed to reduce the secondary “back force deformation” energy when a bullet strikes a bulletproof vest worn by officers by up to 42 to 96%.
The innovative energy-dispersing pads can lower the risk of painful and/or debilitating soft-issue injuries when an officer is shot wearing a ballistic vest.
The T3 Motion TG-7 was extensively tested using N.I.J. Standard 0101-06 for Back Force Signatures (BFS) with the Palm Bay (FL) Police Department, Sebastian (FL) Police Department, and Melbourne (FL) Police Department at the Police Firing Range in Palm Bay, FL.
Four different caliber weapons (9mm Ball, 9mm Hollow Point, 10mm, 40 Cal, and 45 Cal) were fired at a Level IIIA ballistic vest from a distance of 6 feet/1.83 meters.
Each caliber’s ammunition was fired three times—the first for a “Vest only” reading, the second for “1 T3 Motion TG-7 pad,” and the third and final time for “2 T3 Motion TG-7 pads.” The T3 Motion TG-7 Inserts were placed between the vest and the clay block (simulating the human body tissue), per N.I.J. testing standards.
The scale of BFS reduction ranged from 42-68% for a single T3 Motion TG-7 pad to 58-96% for two T3 Motion TG-7 pads.
“The T3 Motion TG-7 Impact Pads are a vital safety product whose need has perhaps never been more important. Keeping our men and women in Blue safe is something we are very proud to be a part of,” said Noel Cherowbrier, CEO of T3 Motion, Inc.
“Anytime an officer can survive not only a round striking the ballistic vest but also the tremendous and potentially debilitating energy behind that bullet, that means tactical technology is doing its job to keep our police and military safe.”
“At T3 Motion, we take our role incredibly seriously as a provider of law enforcement, military, and security gear to our partners around the world. The T3 Motion TG-7 is a product whose purpose has never been more critical.”
T3 Motion, Inc. was founded in 2006 in Costa Mesa, CA, and has become the leader in clean energy, all-electric patrol vehicles for the Law Enforcement, Military, and Security markets.
