Abstract:

In a Phase I effort, Corvid Technologies will develop and test candidates for a series of advanced ballistic shields for crew served weapons stations intended to replace heavy, cumbersome shielding that does not meet required specifications. Current armor production efforts by Corvid will be leveraged, which share similar ballistic and environmental requirements. Corvid also offers a unique approach, which leads to a compressed development cycle and reduced cost and time required to go from concept to highly effective prototype, by employing High Fidelity Computation Physics (HFCP) simulation and a fundamental understanding of penetration mechanics to maximize stopping capability and multi-hit endurance while minimizing weight and cost. Our in-house industrial design team will ensure that human factors and shipboard integration requirements are met. Our in-house armor prototyping capabilities and partnerships with ballistic testing facilities will allow a path forward to a successful Phase II.
