Stumbled across your article looking at a visit to NC state with my son.
Curious about the Bullet-Shredding Metal Foam. I work for the department fo the Navy and see the potential for use in our firing ranges where we use AR500 plate - 3/8" and 1/2". Also see the potential use for body armor for special warfare teams where weight is big factor.
How does it compare to AR500 plate? What ballistics has it been tested against? Can we get a piece of the foam plate for testing comparisons? Would share the data with you.
