Something Interesting

I found a pretty cool article on another blog called "Next Big Future."  In this post the author discusses CPS Technologies' process to combining ceramics and metals to from a type of hybrid armor.  This process shows that cheaper ceramic materials when combined with these metal matrices can outperform more expensive ceramics.  Definitely click the link and check it out.

  1. I'm curious about the timeline of these type of armors. It seems that as soon as a new armor comes out, it's not long before a new armor piercing bullet comes out. And if they were to create the greatest ceramic armor you could imagine, the focus for an armor piercing round would be focused straight to that armor technology. I wonder if there is an industry standard to improve the technology one small step at a time to avoid this problem.
