Project title: „Polymeric composite materials with applications in the manufacturing of equipments used for protection against chemical agents and dynamic stress”

Acronym: IED-Protect

Project type: National


The project aims to obtain modular composite structures for ballistic protection, used to attenuate the destructive effects of improvised explosive devices. The proposed novel approach includes the design, manufacturing and testing of new cellular materials (ceramics and polymers), able to reduce the amplitude of the shockwave and to raise the protection level provided by the obtained modular composite structures for light armored vehicles and buildings. The technico-scientifical objectives of the project are deeply correlated with those of the civil and military beneficiaries. Concretely, the aim is to obtain easy to use, versatile, modular panels with adaptable shapes to fit the structures they are mounted on, either vehicles or buildings.
