Abstract:

This report discusses the methodology used to conduct ballistic tests in support of an experimental armor system for the protection of aircrew members. The system was designed to protect crew members of high performance aircraft and was installed on an obsolete F-89J aircraft for destructive tests. Shots were fired with .30 caliber and .50 caliber AP-M2 and 20mm fragment simulating projectiles. Field firing records of all shots are contained in Appendix III. No analysis of the field data was made in this report.
