UK MoD Materials Technology


PATENT: IPO Strengthened Composite Material

STATUS: Prototype Stage TRL6 (Technology Readiness Level 6)

The technology has a wide range of applications across a broad spectrum of military and civilian fields.

Applications include providing increased survivability from IED attacks against vehicles in the land environment. It is particularly suitable for light and medium armoured patrol vehicles and vital parts of command and logistic vehicles. The technology is integrated into the vehicle design.

The work has been supplemented by access to Ministry of Defence (MoD) grant funding to develop the technology to Technology Readiness Level Six (TRL6), connections at world renowned universities, which have provided access to develop theoretical analysis, mathematical equations, and to conduct experimental work, connections in industry to evaluate the appropriateness of the technology further.
