PROOF ResearchColumbia Falls, MT (Ammoland.com) — PROOF Research, makers of advanced high-temperature composite aerospace/defense materials and components, cut-rifled steel precision rifle barrels, and carbon-fiber composite rifle barrels that deliver extreme accuracy, durability and up to a 50 percent weight reduction—has been awarded an $11.42 million contract for development of advanced hybrid composite muzzle brakes and medium caliber barrels for future weapon systems.

The program builds on PROOF Research’s successful small caliber barrel technology already in service with U.S. military forces, and will enable medium caliber weapons with increased performance and provide overmatch capability on tomorrow’s battlefield. “This project demonstrates the scalability and broad application of PROOF’s technology to any weapon system” stated PROOF Research CEO, Larry Murphy. “It is an exciting progression of our commercial and military small caliber products that will generate a tactical advantage in larger weapons. We are looking forward to improving the tools available to our warfighters.”

“PROOF’s hybrid composite barrel technology is unique in that it opens up the design space to provide lightweight, high stiffness barrels that cannot be manufactured with traditional materials and techniques. We can design and build medium caliber weapon system barrels with performance characteristics previously not attainable.”

Effort sponsored by the U.S. Government under Other Transaction number W15QKN- 09-9-1001/W15QKN-12-9-0001/W15QKN-14-9-1001 between the National Armaments Consortium and the Government.
