Improvements to this standard are the result of an extensive engineering study to address real-world conditions that can degrade body armor performance. NIJ Standard Standardized tests are not always the most effective way to ensure failure-free operation of armor after exposure to repetitive environmental and vibration , or shock , cycles. We can develop customized accelerated life test protocols to simulate worse-case conditions for different types of armor.
Whether the armor is metallic, polymeric, or ceramic, we can create an appropriate accelerated life test to simulate over a decade of field use. DTB can provide all of the rigorous testing required for your opaque armor, including accelerated life testing and post-test ballistic performance. Many of our environmental chambers are also suitable for both components, including individual pieces, or lots, and entire vehicles. DTB is able to generate the required temperature conditions for armor testing in our ballistics facility.
Additionally, we have an on-site optics lab that is used for a portion of ATPD testing. Our experience in the area of optical testing allows us to evaluate the optical properties of transparent armor after having experienced different environmental conditions.
Environmental effects, due to sand abrasion or solar radiation exposure UV , can significantly decrease the optical properties of bullet resistant glass, turn plastics yellow, distort view, make armor brittle, and can affect ballistic properties.
Our facility is equipped with a Spectrophotometer that has haze capabilities with fully automated data acquisition to measure the effects on bullet resistant glass. Opaque Armor. Transparent Armor.
