If you need positive flotation where you may find yourself knocked overboard while wearing a fully-loaded tactical vest (magazines, gas mask, flash-bangs, radio, Level IV Rifle Pates, etc.) we can now offer the TFSS (Tactical Flotation Support System) as an up-fit to our neutral-buoyant Maritime Ballistic Vest (MBV).

AUTO-TFSS For Tactical Ballistic Vests

 The Tactical Flotation Support System (Patent Pending) ™

AUTO-TFSS, designed by PECI Flotation, L.L.C, is an inflatable aid-to-flotation device specifically designed for covert war fighters, combat swimmers, and/or maritime airborne operations personnel. It can also be used with the Helicopter Aircrew Breathing Device (HABD) during egress from a submerged vessel of any type. We have adapted the system to our Maritime Ballistic Vest system for America's Law Enforcement.

The AUTO-TFSS was designed to provide 45lbs positive buoyancy in seawater at a depth of 33 ft., 57lbs of positive flotation at a depth of 15 ft., and 80lbs of flotation on the surface, allowing today’s law enforcement / war fighter a maximum load-out of equipment.

If your ship-boarding team member gets knocked or shoved overboard, they now can survive even if weighed down with a 30lb tactical vest, helmet and sidearm.

Each AUTO-TFSS system consists of one each independent left and right hand units, which can be mounted on a belt. Each unit includes a welded flotation bladder, an inflation system, a pouch closure system, a pouch, and a firing handle. The bladder is a reusable welded fabric enclosure that deploys under the arm and is readily collapsed and stowed for future use. The inflation system utilizes a manually actuated CO2 cartridge for primary inflation and an oral inflation tube for secondary inflation. The AUTO-TFSS pouch uses a unique Grommet, Loop, and Pin (GLP) closure system design that combines positive closure of the pouch with space efficient packing. This method prevents accidental pouch opening and allows for the smallest unit size when fully packed (approx 6.5" x 2.7x 2.25"). A durable Cordura flap to further protect against damage and inadvertent actuation covers the entire closure mechanism. The system attaches to a MOLLE cummerbund on the Tactical Vest or to a MOLLE Battle Belt 

The AUTO-TFSS pouch contains and protects the bladder, inflation system, and closure system. It includes a waist belt loop and clip loops to secure the pouch to the webbing belt. The firing handle attaches to the outside of the pouch and uses color-coded beads to help distinguish left and right hand units. The handle serves to release the closure system and actuate the CO2 inflation system.

To manually actuate a AUTO-TFSS unit, the user pulls upward on the firing handle. This motion initiates two sequential actions. First the pouch closure pins are released, allowing the pouches to open freely. Second the manual inflator lever is actuated, causing the firing pin to puncture the seal on thCO2 cartridges to release the gas and completely fill the bladder. Should the CO2 inflation system fail to operate, the bladder is filled through an inflation tube. This is accomplished by depressing the Oralock valve, the breathing into the tube.

Gas is released from the AUTO-TFSS bladder by pressing downward on the Oralock valve and forcing the air out the oral inflation tube. Once all of the gas is evacuated from the bladder, the CO2 cartridges are replaced, maintenance is performed, and the units are repacked for future use.

This system adds $500 to our MBV cost.

The Navy Clothing and Textile Research Facility (NCTRF), located in Natick, MA, is a government owned and operated laboratory that provides the US Navy Sailor with advanced technological solutions to their clothing and equipment needs. NCTRF’s team of textile technologists, clothing designers, scientists and engineers design and develop dress uniforms, working uniforms, and protective clothing worn by Navy personnel.  The team conducts research, development, test and evaluation, and engineering support of materials and clothing systems to provide the Sailor with advanced ensembles that protect against threats such as fire and steam, heat and cold stress, ballistic impact, water immersion, and chemical agents.  NCTRF also provides technical support to the Defense Logistics Agency – Troop Support and the Navy Exchange Command throughout the procurement process and the life cycle of clothing and textile items.

 NCTRF employs 32 civilians as part of the Naval Supply Systems Command (NAVSUP) and is co-located at the U.S. Army Natick Soldier System Center, 20 miles west of Boston.  In addition to NAVSUP, NCTRF conducts uniform and protective clothing RDT&E for other Navy Commands, other military services, and other government agencies.

Mission of the Laboratory:

To maximize the Quality of Life for Navy Sailors through uniform and protective clothing development and sustainment.


NCTRF’s Clothing and Armor Design Laboratory is fully equipped with Computer Aided Design (CAD) tools and state of the art industrial sewing equipment.  Extensive fiber and material testing and analysis is conducted In the Textile Performance Laboratory, including durability, breathability, color measurement and retention, soil release, cut resistance, and water repellency.  The effects of thermal energy, such as heat, direct flame, and steam, are also evaluated to predict potential burn injury.  In the Biophysical Laboratory, NCTRF scientists and engineers conduct evaluations utilizing instrumented manikins within controlled climatic chambers to evaluate materials, garments, footwear, gloves and mittens, helmets, personal heating or cooling systems, and sleeping bags to predict performance in a variety of work/clothing/environment scenarios.  Studies to determine the effects of water immersion in both standing and moving water are conducted in the unique Hydro-Environmental Chamber with Wave Generator.
