Solidica to Monitor Ground Defense Vehicle’s Armor for the U.S. Army

Solidica, a pioneer in advanced network sensing systems, vehicle health monitoring systems and advanced lightweight armor materials, proclaimed that they have received an agreement from the U.S. Army for establishing an evidence for promoting health monitoring system in the ground defense vehicle.

In association with the Aberdeen Proving Ground based U.S. Army Research Laboratory (ARL), Solidica will conduct the advancement of a structural embedded health monitoring device that can be incorporated into a weight-less vehicle armor. The project comprises structuring a powerful sensor network integrated internally in the armor structure while manufacturing it. The evidence of the concept includes assessing the consequence of the sensor networks on the functionality of the armor, examining the capability to identify and communicate the armor panel damage and effect and also to recognize the procedures for connecting SHM information to the logistics data unit of the Army.

The vehicle health status detecting hub of Solidica, the Chorus™, is a military specified product, which furnishes the base for collection, accumulation and communication of armor panel information off the vehicle at times of ballistic fire testing. The project also provides evaluation of signal information from the monitored armor panels at times of ballistic testing at the Aberdeen Proving Ground.

John McGinnis, VP of Military Sales, Solidica stated that the potentiality to incorporate the unavailable health status of the armor into an entire health detecting condition will enhance the efficiency. He added that in future, the commanders at the functional and strategic levels will be aware of the health condition of their armors and that the structural health detection is a vital process in evaluating the combination of sensors and materials to furnish live data in the entire war-field.
