Abstract
There is an acute need for lightweight, articulating elbow and knee ballistic systems that provide protection against NIJ Level II threat projectiles. Our SBIR Phase I effort focuses on developing a flexible elbow and knee armor system which is capable of meeting NIJ 0101.04 Level II protection requirements. We plan to evaluate both commercially available and new materials that will provide ballistic protection while maintaining at or near full range of motion. Our design includes a combination of rigid composite and flexible ballistic materials for a full-coverage solution. Our extensive first-hand experience with personal protection establishes our vested interest in developing and implementing an NIJ 0101.04 Level II elbow and knee protection system that enables the soldier to maintain full range of motion. The ArmorWorks team is uniquely qualified to design, validate, and demonstrate the Advanced Soldier Knee and Elbow Protection System.
