Abstract:

We propose to develop a lightweight armor applique that ensures survivability against both shaped charge (CE) and kinetic energy (KE) threats. In previous DARPA-sponsored efforts, we developed a unique armor package capable of defeating these threats. KE defeat was obtained by inducing a rotational motion in the penetrator, with final penetration limited to the penetrator's diameter. This design approach was better suited to heavy armor threats. In the proposed effort, we will apply design features of the heavy armor system to ensure erosion of the penetrator within the armor module. CE Defeat will be produced by conventional flyer-plate wiping. KE defeat will be obtained by projecting flyer-plate material into the penetrator's path. Simple explosive logic will be used to optimize the arrival of plate material. This feature will minimize the plate material required to erode the penetrator threat.
