BALLISTIC TESTING OF ADDITIONAL ARMOUR DEMONSTRATORS, BARTŁOMIEJ PŁONKA, KRZYSZTOF REMSAK, MAREK RAJDA
Abstract. The article presents the methodology and results of armour ballistic resistance testing. The armour was designed and manufactured by the Institute of Non-ferrous Metals, Light Metals Division (IMN OML) in cooperation with LUBAWA S.A. Additional armour was made of multi-layer materials, including special ceramics and light metals. The method of creating armour demonstrators for Armstal armoured steel 6 mm, 8 mm and 10 mm thick armour is presented. Description and possible applications of object demonstrator designed and manufactured by "OBRUM" sp. z o.o are also given. All of the armour and the object demonstrators were designed to be tested in accordance with STANAG 4569 and AEP 55 standards. Ballistic tests of the armour demonstrators showed positive results according to standard requirements for 8 out of 9 demonstrators. The research results show that the object demonstrator is suitable for conducting a wide range of tests in accordance with the standards.
