Abstract

IN PHASE I, SI DEVELOPED NON-BALLISTIC AND BALLISTIC HARDENED SHELTER CONCEPTS. THE CONCEPTS INCORPORATED THE USE OF COMPOSITE MATERIALS. IN PHASE II, SI PROPOSES TO DEVELOP A BALLISTIC HARDENED SHELTER CONSTRUCTED OF STRUCTURAL ARMOR. SI WILL PRODUCE A DETAIL DESIGN AND FABRICATE A PROTOTYPE S280C SIZE SHELTER. THE DATA PRODUCED IN PHASE II WILL BE USED ON THE NEXT GENERATION OF AIR FORCE ELECTRONIC EQUIPMENT SHELTERS.
