Contract: W911QY-12-C-0026
Award Amount: $729,754.00


The objective of this SBIR Phase II proposal is to develop and demonstrate an advanced lightweight EOD face shield system that fits on the lightweight ACH helmet and meeting ballistic, optical, functional and operational requirements for Advanced Bomb Suit. During Phase I effort, Frontier has successfully demonstrated the feasibility of applying Frontier"s innovative laminated transparent armor technology for the EOD face shield applications by developing an optimized lamination process, exploring various hard coating solutions to improve the optical properties and abrasion resistance, evaluating the process parameters to improve the ballistic and optical properties of the face shield, fabricating curved face shield prototypes, and studying the ballistic performance of the curved face shields. In the proposed Phase II studies, Frontier plans to produce better quality materials, refine hard coating process, optimize EOD face shield design concepts, fabricate EOD face shield prototypes, and evaluate the EOD face shield performance meeting the ballistic, optical, functional and operation requirements. The proposed transparent armor technology and novel EOD face shield design can be used to answer the EOD"s needs to reduce the weight burden and provide better protection.
