The Air Force Research Laboratory, 711th Human Performance Wing, has signed a cooperative research and development agreement with the Ohio State University. Special operations units in the Defense Department are physically and mentally elite due to the training they endure. Since special operations personnel are not readily accessible at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, Ohio, unique hands-on insight was required for rapid acceleration of human performance monitoring research, technology and tools for the battlefield.

A new type of flexible body armor developed through a collaboration between the Air Force and Naval Research Laboratories is 50 percent lighter than current body armor. The design makes the use of a ceramic ball matrix encapsulated in foam material, which is then backed with multiple layers of polyethylene sheets. (U.S. Air Force photo by Marisa Novobilski/released) Flexing in the line of fire: Lightweight, flexible body armor for the future force
In the line of fire, protective body armor plays a critical role in survival. Hard-plated, rigid and heavy, today’s National Institute of Justice Type IV body armor -- the kind that protects warfighters against armor piercing bullets -- defends the wearer, but adds weight and bulk that a fast-moving operator could do without.
