Abstract

An armor system incorporates electromagnetic concepts into a robust, structurally efficient armor panel and exploits synergies between the elements of the system to reduce its aerial density. The electromagnetic concept provides capitatively charged electrodes whose rapid shorting by high aspect projectiles provides a reactive means for the defeat of hypervelocity, high aspect ratio metallic projectiles, such as metallic "jets" formed by shaped charges. In combination with the electromagnetic concept, the system exploits topology optimization of cellular core sandwich panels to provide efficient load supporting structures, provide high structural efficiency, and provide good environmental protection. The multifunctional system results in a low aerial density armor solution that can be easily tailored to match a wide variety of threat scenarios. The system can be fabricated in a variety of complex shapes including cylinders, hemispheres, beams and plates.
