Abstract:

This proposal describes a 24-month SBIR Phase II program to fabricate, test, and validate prototype fastener design concepts for an impulse resulting from an anti-vehicular blast event against a tactical vehicle. The design should reduce weight by 25-40% compared to typical fasteners, minimize shearing and fragmentation effects, and decrease the time to install the blast protection kit at a reasonable cost. The success of the design will be demonstrated via mechanical, dynamic, ballistic, and field blast tests to validate finite element analysis predictions of the design.
