Research Institution
This SBIR will look to optimize four factors: ballistic protection, flexibility, weight and cube, and cost . The proposed arc tent protection system is intended to mitigate damage from indirect fire, such as a mortar attack, IEDs, and small arms fire. A mortar detonation causes two major threats to a soft-walled shelter. The mortar or IED releases fragments that have the capability to cause life threatening injuries to soldiers residing within the tent and the blast pressure produces a blast that could potentially rip apart the tent and cause portions of the tent to become a projectile.
