Abstract
Our SBIR Phase I effort focuses on developing a flexible armor system which is capable of meeting current Level IV protection requirements. We plan to use commercially available materials similar to the current armor plates such as the E-SAPI and X-SAPI plates. Our unique design uses multiple shapes of ceramic tiles in a multi-layered configuration. This design will provide flexibility and increased coverage over current systems.
