The main objective of this study focuses on designing and testing body protection systems using advanced materials based on aramid fibers, for high impact speeds of up to 410...430 m/s. The investigation of the failure mechanisms identifies issues of protective materials, major challenges and technological problems for efficient development of these systems. The authors presents an investigation on the failure processes and destructive stages of a ballistic package made of succesive layers of LFT SB1plus, taking into account the particular test conditions from NIJ Standard-0101.06 Ballistic Resistance of Body Armor. The main parameter of interest was the backface signature (BFS), but also details of projectile arrest and SEM investigaton could offer arguments in using this material for individual protection.
