Exploration of technologies of use to civil security forces

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

This is the final report of a two-year, Laboratory Directed Research and Development (LDRD) project at the Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL). The objective was to determine whether armor tile technology could be used to solve problems of civil law enforcement as identified by the New Mexico State Police. Most of the effort focused on the design and construction of a lightweight, portable box that could contain the shrapnel and redirect the blast from a steel-pipe/black-powder bomb. The bomb box task was carried out in collaboration with two companies, Foster Miller, Inc. and Ordnance Body Armor Co., who constructed most ... continued below

Most of the effort focused on the design and construction of a lightweight, portable box that could contain the shrapnel and redirect the blast from a steel-pipe/black-powder bomb. The bomb box task was carried out in collaboration with two companies, Foster Miller, Inc. and Ordnance Body Armor Co., who constructed most of the boxes tested. The results of the tests indicated that soft, flexible fabrics are superior to hard tiles in containing the bomb fragments. Subsequent to these experiments, Foster Miller has developed a bomb container that is commercialized and is currently being sold to law enforcement agencies.
