Abstract
In recent study, the Defence Research Establishment Valcartier has modified a hybrid III head form to measure the potential lethality of small calibre projectiles against combat helmets. This head form contributes to the evaluation of a prototype helmet capacity to protect the head instead of evaluating the capacity to stop the projectile. However, prototype helmets are normally produced in limited numbers and are expensive. Plates are easier to manufacture and less expensive. DREV has completed a series of tests using small calibre projectiles to compare the results from an instrumented head protected by a composite helmet with the results from an instrumented head protected by a composite plate made with the same raw material and using the same manufacturing procedures as the composite helmet. The results showed that the technique is feasible but more tests are required to refine the approach and built the appropriate mathematical function.
