Abstract
The company Pyrogenesis produced a series of experimental helmets by their net shape plasma deposition process. These helmets were made of either titanium or titanium-ceramic composite. The helmets were subsequently tested at DRDC Valcartier to obtain their ballistic performance against 1.1-g fragment simulating projectiles and 1.39-g flechettes. In general their performance did not meet initial expectations.
