Starfire Systems (Schenectady, N.Y.) reported that its proprietary silicon carbide (SiC)-polycarbosilane ceramic matrix composites (CMC) polymer system has been processed to create a new body armor solution that is capable of defeating the extreme threat of armor-piercing bullets. Starfire, which fabricated sandwich plates made with ceramic polymer core and faceskins of E-glass and S-glass in a variation of its normal process, recently received test results indicating that the plates meet National Institute of Justice (NIJ) 0101.06 standards for armor-piercing rounds, without penetration of the back plate.
