Abstract: The U.S. Army Research Laboratory sought a Short-Term Analysis Services (STAS) program funded through Army Research Office (ARO) with Mide in the research, design, and development of an adaptive control system to mitigate the shock wave impact on an isolation system during and after a ballistic event. This report documents the initial work performed by Mide.
