Abstract:

FUTURE COMBAT VEHICLES WILL EMPLOY MODULAR ARMOR PROTECTION SYSTEMS THAT CAN BE CHANGED TO MEET DIFFERENT THREAT LEVELS. THESE ADVANCED ARMOR UNITS WILL BE MOUNTED AND DISMOUNTED FROM THE BASIC VEHICLE STRUCTURE, AS NEEDED TO MEET PROTECTION REQUIREMENTS. THE OBJECTIVE OF THIS EFFORT IS TO DEVELOP INNOVATIVE ATTACHMENT CONCEPTS AND METHODS FOR MOUNTING THE MODULAR ARMOR PROTECTION UNITS TO THE BASIC VEHICLE STRUCTURE. THE ARMOR MODULES OF PRIMARY INTEREST ARE THOSE DESIGNED TO COUNTER LARGER CALIBER TANK FIRED PROJECTILES AND ANTI-TANK MISSILES. THE DESIGN THREATS INCLUDE LARGE KINETIC ENERGY AND CHEMICAL ENERGY ANTI-TANK PROJECTILES AS WELL AS LARGE ANTI-TANK GUIDED AND UNGUIDED MISSILES. THE MOUNTING AND ATTACHMENT HARDWARE, AS WELL AS THE REST OF THE VEHICLE STRUCTURE, WILL HAVE TO SURVIVE THE BALLISTIC IMPACT LOADS WHICH ARE TRANSMITTED THROUGH THE ARMOR MODULES. THE ATTACHMENT HARDWARE THAT IS FIXED DIRECTLY TO THE VEHICLE STRUCTURE MUST NOT BE DAMAGED.
