Abstract: This work was prepared under Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) contract DACA39-87-G-0032, "Construction of Scale Model Armor Units," awarded 29 May 1987. The purpose of the work was to (1) research and/or develop new methods and materials to produce model armor units that are cost effective to make, safe to produce, durable in use, and meet specified size, weight, specific gravity, and other requirements and (2) produce approximately 1,500 dolosse of three different sizes, weights, and specific gravities. The Phase I contract has been successful in that the contractor has developed a method to reproduce durable model armor units at a reasonable production rate and furnished three model size dolosse. The contractor has proposed a Phase II grant in which further refinement of his work will be developed and more model units developed. Phase III work has also been initiated and is actively being pursued.
