The Armys primary goal is to provide its soldiers with the equipment to do their job and return home safely. A strategic element of the future success of the US military against a myriad of potential threats is the performance of armor systems for air and ground vehicles as well as the individual soldier. Ceramic materials are currently used in many armor systems and they will be integral components of future systems. This symposium continues the search for novel material concepts and the development of valid armor design and characterization tools to predict performance.
