Research Institution
The Navy in support of the sailor has identified the need for an advanced ballistic shield for Crew Served Weapons Stations that will allow for a required level of ballistic protection without interfering with other shipboard duties that need to be performed. This proposed system will protect the sailor from the increased asymmetric threats that are faced on the high seas as well as during close shore or in port operations by either being reconfigurable or non configurable. GS Engineering has a solid understanding of the challenges of this effort as well as the technologies and materials that should be utilized to fulfill the design requirements. GS Engineering will propose a family of ballistic shields that provide the required level of protection while being reconfigurable to allow for line handling and underway replenishment (UNREP). These same shields will be designed for shipboard design conditions such as wave force. GS Engineering will leverage its actual successful program experience as well as SBIR experience in developing and integrating ballistic solutions for tactical vehicles coupled with our experience in naval operations to deliver a technically innovative solution that meets or exceeds the program requirements.
