Abstract
The E-SAPI specification describes the protection level of a soldier's body armor in response to an AP, M2 round. Presently this is addressed largely through the use of boron carbide plate inserts for an outer tactical vest. A unique materials architecture is proposed with the possibility of increasing the armor's ballistic mass efficiency and therefore allowing for the lowering of the armor weight. The Phase I Option will explore a modification to the assembly of this architecture.
