Abstract: The US Army Research Laboratory conducted an initial study to characterize the material properties and armor performance of low-density ceramic composite tiles manufactured by the Ukrainian National Academy of Science, under a US Army International Technology Center contract. These ceramic formulations were compared with standard armor-grade boron carbide and silicon carbide tiles versus the 12.7-mm armor-piercing APM2 projectile.
