Title (EN) ANTI-BALLISTIC COMPOSITE ARMOR AND ASSOCIATED METHOD
(FR) ARMURE COMPOSITE ANTI-BALISTIQUE ET PROCEDE ASSOCIE
Abstract: front page image
(EN)A composite armor (20) is provided for protecting a person or object from injury or damage caused by a high velocity projectile (9) that impacts the person or object. The composite armor (20) has an energy absorbing layer (30) containing one or more lattices (32), with each lattice (32) forming a number of cells. The lattice or lattices (32) are formed of a flexible fabric. Each lattice cell (32) contains one or more particles (40) formed of a hard material. The particles (40) may be formed of a variety of materials, including but not limited to a ceramic material. In one embodiment of the invention, a sheet formed of a flexible antiballistic fabric (50) is placed over the energy absorbing layer (30).
(FR)L'invention porte sur une armure composite (20) destinée à protéger une personne ou un objet de blessure ou dommage provoqué par un projectile à haute vitesse (9). L'armure composite (20) comporte une couche absorbant l'énergie (30) contenant un ou plusieurs treillis (32), chaque treillis étant constitué d'un nombre d'alvéoles. Le ou les treillis (32) sont formés dans un tissu souple. Chaque alvéole du treillis (32) contient une ou plusieurs particules (40) formées dans un matériau dur. Les particules (40) peuvent être formées dans divers matériaux, tels que mais pas exclusivement, un matériau céramique. Selon une forme d'exécution de cette invention, une feuille formée dans un tissu flexible anti-balistique (50) est placée sur la couche absorbant l'énergie (30).
