Multi-Ply Heterogeneous Armor

Multi-Ply Heterogeneous Armor

Ratings: (0)|Views: 16 |Likes:
The Naval Research Laboratory (NRL) has developed impact armor with unparalleled performance for its weight. The armor consists of alternating layers of an elastic polymer and a harder material such as aluminum, ceramic, or an alternative polymer. Performance is enhanced with as few as six alternating layers. The layers can be attached to a thicker front plate or backing for additional protection. A topographically structured front surface rotates pointed projectiles, enhancing penetration resistance, and allows for breakage by blunting the projectile’s point. The armor affords protection against a range of threats, including armor piercing munitions and explosion fragments. The strength and lightness of the armor would allow for portable, modular protective structures or lightweight personal gear for industrial or law enforcement applications.
