Performance characteristics of an ideal patterned armor with respect to multiple hits are discussed and the types of single shot. ballistic data needed to quantify that performance are presented An approach to use these data is developed to provide a. quantitative measure probability of nonperforation after a given number of impacts of the patterned armor performance against. multiple impacts This performance measure can then be compared to a well posed multiple hit criterion to assess whether the. patterned armor meets the criterion, 15 SUBJECT TERMS.

Acknowledgments, The author is indebted to Dr Steven Segletes for his careful review of the draft manuscript and.
his general formulation of the probability of nonperforation of patterned armor containing cells. capable of withstanding more than one impact which is used as the Appendix to this report. Dr Segletes provided the generalization to the combinatorial problem used concerning multiple. hits on a given cell, Dr Segletes would like to thank Dr Paul Tanenbaum of the U S Army Research Laboratory s. Survivability Lethality Analysis Directorate for discussing this problem at length and making. very helpful suggestions including that an inclusion exclusion approach was applicable to a. simpler though similar problem and should apply here as well Dr Tanenbaum s review of the. Appendix further corrected some deficient definitions and notations. INTENTIONALLY LEFT BLANK, 1 Introduction, At the 14th Annual Ground Vehicle Survivability Symposium in Monterey CA on April 2003. LTG John S Caldwell called for armors to be designed that would be perforated 0 of the time. This is certainly the goal of all armor designers but in practice certain compromises must be. made between protection levels cost and vehicle weight such that this goal is rarely attained. This is especially true for lightweight air transportable fighting vehicles that the Army is. currently developing as part of the Future Combat System of Systems. The protection problem for lightweight armored vehicles is compounded by threats that feature. multiple impacts such as machine guns and fragmenting warheads Armors designed for these. types of vehicles must possess the capability to defeat a large number of closely spaced impacts. in a given burst or explosion Some of the armors being considered for lightweight vehicles are. modular in nature have a repeating geometric pattern or both These will be referred to as. patterned armor The module or repeating pattern element will be referred to as a cell. While specific cases of patterned armor performance have been examined in the past there has. been no general approach developed to evaluate patterned armor for lightweight armored. vehicles attacked by automatic weapons or bursting munitions Whatever level of performance. is set as the multiple hit criterion there has to be an accepted means or methodology by which. the results of single shot ballistic data can be used to estimate the performance of a given. patterned armor design against multiple impacts, Section 2 will contain a discussion of a possible testing strategy and the considerations that must. be made in conducting the ballistic tests Characteristics of effective patterned armor will be. included in this section, Section 3 will provide a proposed methodology that shows how the individual ballistic data. might be used to establish the performance level of the patterned armor against multiple impacts. It is based on a model recently published by de Rosset and Wald 2002 Several examples will. be presented that exercise this methodology and show its usefulness in evaluating trade offs in a. given armor technology trade offs between competing armor technologies and effects of. velocity on armor performance The final section will summarize the main ideas presented in the. 2 Patterned Armor Performance Characteristics, For the sake of clarity and purposes of discussion in this report it is necessary to distinguish.
between the terms ballistic performance and multiple hit criterion Ballistic performance of. a patterned armor vs multiple impacts can be determined from an analysis of individual ballistic. results and is the subject of this report Multiple hit criterion is a specified level of performance. on a given armor cell or armor cell array This level of performance should be set high enough. to allow the armored vehicle to survive most realistic battlefield encounters For instance the. multiple hit criterion may state that the armor array must withstand perforation of a 10 round. burst from a 12 7 mm machine gun at a distance of 500 m with a probability of 90 The. weapon to target distance range and the weapon characteristics give the dispersion of the. impacts on the target as well as the striking velocity. The procedures used to evaluate patterned armor that are presented in this section are. straightforward and based on the nature of the armor being tested Most if not all of these. procedures have been and are being used by the U S Army Research Laboratory in testing. ceramic tiled armor arrays These procedures are to be distinguished from such tests as depth of. penetration DOP tests or other types of screening tests that are used in the early stages of. evaluating armor concepts and materials The procedures presented here are to be used for armor. arrays that have already undergone some initial tests and have high potential for actual fielding. on an armored vehicle, The main characteristic of patterned armor is that the armor is made up of repeating cells There. is generally a border or line of demarcation between the cells that is a potential weak point in the. armor array For instance the seam between ceramic tiles generally has lower ballistic. performance than the center of the tile It may also be that performance of an individual cell. depends on the hit location within the cell Reactive armor is a good example of this de Rosset. 1998 To ensure overall armor array performance an impact in one cell should leave adjoining. cells intact and capable of defeating a subsequent impact if it had not been previously struck. The properties of an ideal patterned armor can thus be summarized as follows. ability of an undamaged cell to defeat a single threat round at a velocity corresponding to. the specified range based on limit velocity as indicated next. uniform ballistic performance over the entire area of the cell. no loss of performance in the area between cells seam effect and. no effect on adjoining cells from impact on a given cell. The first step in the evaluation procedure is to determine the limit velocity of the threat against. an individual cell This has usually been accomplished though an initial screening process that. has determined suitable materials and design By suitable we mean that the armor material and. design produces a limit velocity that is high enough to meet the multiple hit criterion for a single. shot rather than the entire burst The limit velocity can be determined in either of two ways. First a plot of the residual velocity vs striking velocity will yield a limit velocity VL through. a Lambert Jonas Lambert and Jonas 1976 fit to the data Second a V50 can be determined. through standard test procedures Where there is little or no zone of mixed results the two. values are approximately equal For purposes of discussion this report will assume that there is. a single value for the limit velocity Above this velocity the armor is perforated by the threat. and below this value the threat is defeated This simplistic approach can be modified to take. into account a more sophisticated concept of probability of perforation However the essence of. the methodology presented in this report would not be affected with this more involved. The reduction in striking velocity as a function of range weapon to target distance is rather. steep for small arms ammunition It is conceivable that there is a range at which a given tile can. withstand two impacts due to the low striking velocity The range where two impacts can be. sustained by a single tile might vary slightly as a function of the distance between impacts on. that tile It is expected that with new ceramic tile encapsulation technology the probability of a. single tile sustaining multiple hits will increase The next section indicates how the evaluation. methodology can be adapted to take into account this increase in performance. The next step is to determine the uniformity or lack thereof of the ballistic performance over. the entire area of the cell Ideally the limit velocity is the same at all impact points within the. cell However if there is some falloff in performance in some particular area of the cell a. performance map of the cell needs to be generated as input data for the evaluation methodology. Clearly it is more advantageous to apply efforts to making the performance homogeneous over. the entire cell than to expend resources to show where the cell fails to meet the requirements. However there may simply be physical reasons why the performance cannot be uniform. The third step is to determine the performance of the patterned armor in the area between cells.
