Abstract : The objective of this effort was to develop a new layered protective system effective in defeating advanced penetrating weapons. The system consists of a reinforced concrete deflection grid and a burster slab to deflect and stop the penetrator. The design was to be cost effective, improve survivability and be used in both new and retrofit construction.
