Recent research at BAE SYSTEMS Advanced Technology Centre has been driven by the requirement to reduce the weight of armour system. Taking a multi functional approach, armour systems have been studied which through a combination of high shock loading and energy dissipation have the potential to offer significant weight reduction compared to current systems with the same level of protection. Experimental results and observations, using high speed optical and flash X-ray imaging, will be presented from laboratory based impact tests on novel systems with the equivalent performance to 50mm of rolled homogeneous armour steel.
