Abstract
The objective will be to research, develop and build a lightweight modular armor package that will provide reliable ballistic protection at low cost. UDC will identify promising alternative lightweight ballistic armors and designs for ballistic protection of EFV. The new armor will allow multiple impacts without ballistic performance degradation. UDC will conduct design studies to determine the maximum thickness, weight and geometry of the armor package. The ballistic testing will be performed with 14.5 mm bullet in accordance with EFV S/SS Specification and MIL-STD-662F V50 Ballistic Test For Armor. The selected panels will be tested for environmental exposure, including salt water immersion and immersion in petroleum based liquids sand erosion and abrasion. At the end of Phase I, a comprehensive report with results and conclusions, and a Phase II plan will be submitted.
