Research Institution
Composite armor technology program to develop an all-composite armor system that meets protection requirements for U.S. Army Small Arms Protective Insert (SAPI) body armor plates. This technology uses unique composite materials and processes to replace the ceramic elements of the current SAPI system, thereby reducing cost and solving a raw materials scarcity problem associated with current ceramic armor systems. Ballistic testing on actual SAPI plates is used to demonstrate feasibility. Armor development and test activities are conducted on SAPI size medium armor plates.
