One of the leading manufacturers of passive armour packages is German company IBD - Deisenroth Engineering - and supplies more than 7,000 armour packages for a wide range of tracked and wheeled AFVs. It has also supplied packages for trucks used in peacekeeping operations. The company markets three basic packages called MEXAS light, medium and heavy. The company also allows licensed production of its armour packages and has the capability to develop armour for specific applications.
Typical passive add-on armor is the MEXAS, produced by IBD in Germany. In some models of passive composite armor, reactive, non energetic materials are contained between the different layers of the armor. These materials react when hit by a projectile, and cause the whole module to change its physical characteristics.

Well, as far as body armor goes, I saw a Discovery channel documentary about body armor...specifically, a guy created an extremely bulky yet absolute head to toe suit of armor called the "G-Man Genesis" or the "G-Suit Genesis" If anyone has information on the body armor please post or u2U me or anything. I can't even find a website on it! HELP! LOL
