Abstract

The protection of forces in the new world conflicts has become a particularly important issue for all the world’s armies. Therefore, ensuring an optimal level of protection, combined with maintaining freedom of movement in the tactical field has become a very important topic for research teams. This goal can be achieved by using materials in the protection of forces with a relatively low mass, but to ensure a substantial reduction in the kinetic energy of ballistic penetrators. In this paper are presented some considerations on how the ballistic penetration process is affected by the presence of ceramic materials.
