Towards Improved Soldier Protection


Date: May 31, 2019
Time: 11:00 p.m.
Location: Spanagel 117

The May 31, 2019 Physics lecture is titled “Towards Improved Soldier Protection” with Dr. Sikhanda Satapathy, Army Research Laboratory. Event will be held in Spanagel 117 at 11:00 p.m.

Current personal protective equipment (PPE) have drastically reduced battlefield fatalities by using high performance materials to effectively defeat common threats. One approach to reduce battlefield injuries is to further optimize the performance of PPE; however this optimization is limited by our understanding of the human body’s response to the ballistic environment.
