This proposal offers the development of an advanced lightweight transparent armor that combines lightweight glass, Gemini spaced armor technology, advanced Quintium polymer and a proprietary thermoset interlayer (TAS1411) to reduce weight by more than 30% of the current state of the art. Ballistic testing will be completed at both elevated and low temperatures. Environmental testing will demonstrate that these materials also increase the armor"s environmental durability. In addition, the materials chosen do not drastically increase the cost of the transparent armor. Using current technologies, decreasing transparent armor weight by 30% would increase costs by a factor of 4 to 8. The proposed technology combination offers a 30% decrease in weight while increasing costs only by a factor of 2 to 2.5.
