Multi-Hit Ballistics Test
Body armor is traditionally validated with single shots in a set pattern at specified distances, with lag time between shots. In combat environments soldiers and law enforcement personnel are subjected to automatic and semi-automatic weapons, generating multiple shots at once. Bosik Technologies, Ltd developed a three-barrel firing fixture and corresponding test protocols to assess multi-hit performance of hard and soft body armors. The test fixture can vary firing rate, angle of obliquity, shot sequence and pattern orientations. In addition, the barrels can be swapped to simulate a variety of weapons. The test fixture will be further evaluated for possible inclusion in body armor specifications. For additional information please fill out the Contact Information Form.
