Abstract
A flexible body armor design is proposed and it will be fabricated and evaluated for its conformance to a soldier’s body movements and for its ballistic efficacy. Shoot packs will be fitted with flexible SAPI plates that will not exceed 8 psf which will then be tested at their most vulnerable locations with armor piercing, M80, APM2, M855, M993 and M995 rounds.
