A branch of its duties include coming up with an industry benchmark for ballistics specifications in various areas of armour. Besides North America, many other countries like Australia and Thailand have adopted similar standards.

The NIJ standard ranges from NIJ I to NIJ IV, where the former withstands a variety of bullet calibers from different handguns while the latter is able to repel an armour-piercing round from a sniper rifle. For the purpose of vehicle protection, NIJ IIA is recommended by most as the basic requirement.
