Abstract

See full text

The invention provides a ceramic body for deployment in a composite armor panel, for absorbing and dissipating kinetic energy from high velocity projectiles, the body having a peg-like configuration consisting of a stem section and a head section wherein a cross-sectional area across the stem is less than a cross-sectional area across the head section.
