Naval Surface Warfare Center, Dahlgren Division, is collaborating with Naval Surface Warfare Center, Carderock Division, and Naval Undersea Warfare Center, Division Newport, to produce layered polyureawoven crimp graded composite panels optimized for blast and fragment impact protection. The intent is to develop blast and impact resistant elastomeric coatings and woven fabric-reinforced polymer composites for use in numerous structural and survivability applications as well as applications where improved lightweight blast and impact protection is a necessity. This report documents the NSWCDD light gas gun experimental portion of this effort.
