Umbra Applied Technologies Group Launches UBR-16 Military Rifle

SHORT HILLS, NJ -- (Marketwired) -- 08/14/14 -- Umbra Applied Technologies (UAT), an Umbra Applied Technologies Group, Inc. company (OTC: UATG), announced today that it has completed the final design of its highly anticipated Umbra Battle Rifle the UBR-16. After exhaustive research and testing, the much talked about UBR-16 is ready for delivery to government agencies for preliminary field testing.

Under the UAT ARMS brand, Umbra Applied Technologies has completed manufacturing of its UBR-16 demonstrator models to be released to law enforcement and government agencies. The first run demonstrator rifles are destined for law enforcement agencies to be tested under severe conditions by special operations units. Chairman and CEO Alexander L. Umbra was quoted as saying, "We at UAT and UATG are proud to deliver the next generation of American born advanced weapons. We believe that the UBR-16 is the finest, most reliable and efficient battle rifle currently available and we look forward to receiving the feedback from those professionals who will be using this tool to save lives and defend freedom in real world scenarios."

There is no disputing that the UBR-16 is an exceptional product manufactured from only the finest materials and components but, will it really perform over the duration in combat? Chuck Winters, President of Umbra Applied Technologies Group believes so, "UAT has once again proven what it means to implement a standard of excellence. We are confident that the Umbra Battle Rifle will exceed all expectations." In fact, the brand motto is "UAT ARMS. Beyond MILSPEC," so exceeding expectations is clearly something UAT ARMS intends to do.

With the delivery of the Umbra Battle Rifles comes the debut of the very secretive metal treatment process referred to as UmbraTec. UmbraTec is a proprietary technology that permanently bonds to the metal substrate at the molecular level protecting the UBR-16 from virtually any environmental or combat situation. According to Mr. Umbra, "UmbraTec is a significant leap forward in self-lubricating metals and insures that the weapon will function under the most severe and extreme circumstances. This is not an exotic add on, it is a necessary component which contributes to the difference between a standard issued weapon and a weapon that has been designed for special operations." Umbra further announced that in the coming weeks, the company will announce more details about the specifics and technicals of the UBR-16. Senior Vice President of Operations Blake Cooley said, "This is an exciting time for us at UAT and to be a part of delivering this product to those who defend freedom and democracy around the world is truly a privilege."
