A new type of flexible body armor developed through a collaborative effort between the Air Force and the Naval Research Laboratory 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/Marisa Novobilski) 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.

First Lt. Anthony Eastin clips the tablet into the Bat Rack, a mounting device created by the Battlefield Air Targeting Man-Aided Knowledge team in the 711th Human Performance Wing's Airman Systems Directorate. This mounting device enables operators to carry and easily access their tablets. (U.S. Air Force photo/Gina Marie Giardina) Airman links deployed operators to human performance experts
Many scientists and engineers go directly from school to laboratories and do not get the opportunity to work side by side with customers who use the products they create. For a behavioral scientist in the 711th Human Performance Wing at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, Ohio, that’s not the case.
