Research Institution
In this Phase I effort, Cornerstone Research Group, Inc. (CRG) proposes to demonstrate the feasibility of an innovative smart fastener design. Novel armor fastening technologies must be developed for next-generation composite armor. These fastening systems must be quick and easy to install and maintain, require no structural modification to the current vehicle fleet, and support the weight of the armor under ballistic attack and low frequency fatigue. CRG will design, fabricate, and evaluate proof-of-concept fasteners that meet and exceed the Army's armor fastening needs. CRG's demonstrated expertise in the proposed technology areas presents the Army with the opportunity to obtain a novel fastening technology for appliqué armor. CRG's track record for innovating new materials and processing technologies positions CRG for successful implementation of the novel fastening technology that meets the Army's operational needs.
