Our tale starts on the ice, dirt tracks, raceways and battlefields. Delta Three Oscar™ is the American military brother of D3O - the world’s #1 impact protection company.
D3O enables and empowers people who use their products to stay safe while taking risks and challenging their limits. The company operates across numerous sectors including motorsports, workwear, sports and consumer electronics. Its materials and products are used in everything from CE-certified motorcycle gear, to ice hockey and NOCSAE-certified American football helmets, to mountain bike pads, to padding in impact resistant DIY gloves sold at Home Depot. You may even already have them in your pocket in the shape of a Gear4 phone case or InvisibleShield screen protector bought at Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile or Best Buy.
For our armed forces, D3O was the first company to simultaneously meet the IHPS system’s rigorous 14 foot/second impact protection requirement while delivering improved performance for the traditional 10 foot/second requirement. To develop this industry-leading system, D3O leveraged its previous helmet pad design expertise supplying multiple defense customers, including prominent international protective kit providers, as well as its expertise developing market-leading impact protection across the industrial, sports, motorcycle and electronics markets. The result, developed in collaboration with the National Industries for the Blind, is a helmet pad set that exceeds the requirements set by the U.S. Army. D3O commenced IHPS Generation I LRIP in summer 2018 and has been the #1 supplier ever since.
Delta Three Oscar™ was created thereafter to dedicate the best of what both military and civilian D3O® technology has to offer, for the benefit of our military and law enforcement personnel. As such, the Delta Three Oscar™ product offering has benefited from years of research and development time and money that went into improving impact protection performance and comfort, ensuring our military and law enforcement personnel are able to capitalize on any advancements made in these areas.
