Abstract:

The objective of this proposal is to develop advanced lightweight facial protection system for bomb suit face shield with lightweight, excellent transparency and high ballistic resistance to reduce combat load and improve mobility for explosive ordnance disposal (EOD) soldiers and combat engineers during missions. To accomplish this goal, Frontier will develop a novel high performance lightweight transparent material technology that would meet all the weight, transparent design and ballistic resistance requirements. During the Phase I effort, Frontier will demonstrate the feasibility of the proposed concept and innovation, identify and address the technical hurdles, perform proof-of-concept validation as well as address the performance and cost issues. The success of the proposed technology will lead to high performance bomb suit face shield having superior ballistic protection and good optical quality and 30~50% weight reduction. Moreover, Frontierf?Ts novel transparent armor material technology would allow robust face shield design to accommodate more flexibility to address the operational comfortableness and effectiveness.
