Title: ELECTRIC REACTIVE ARMOUR
Abstract:
An electric reactive armour (10) comprises a first electrode (1) and a second electrode (2) spaced apart from the first electrode, to which electrodes (1, 2) a high voltage can be applied so as to disrupt a charge contacting the electrodes. The second electrode (2) comprises an electrically conductive structure (21) having a plurality of surfaces (22) embedded in an insulating material (23), such that the charge jet penetrates successive surfaces of the electrically conductive structure. The electrically conductive structure (21) comprises a meandering structure and/or a structure of linked cavities, such as a honeycomb structure.
