This proposal describes and SBIR Phase I program to develop a high-performance, low-cost composite armor for the AAAV. Ballistic protection offered by state-of-the-art composite materials are presented and compared to demonstrate the need and performancegoals for composite materials as fragment armors and as backings in ceramic armor systems. Ballistic performance models are presented and compared. Hybrid composite armor designs that use low-cost materials are discussed along with development and testplans. Cost models for composite armors are presented. Flammability testing proposed for candidate AAAV armor systems is outlined.Improved composite armor technology applicable to bullet and fragment armor systems. Improved ceramic armor designs thatreduce cost and imrpove multiple impact protection of ceramic armors against armor piercing bullets. Composite armor designs and ballistic performance models applicable to personnel, aircraft, ship, and ground vehicle armor systems.
