December 2016
QCML is partnered with Western Illinois University, University of North Texas, Temple University, and University of Southern Mississippi on a research program entitled “Advanced Ballistics Technology: Material Development, Characterization, and Computational Modeling.”   This program is led by Temple University and is a two year cooperative agreement with the US Army Research Lab to develop improved armor for US soldiers.  QCML will fabricate novel armor materials and structures through advanced manufacturing techniques such as 3D printing, Spark Plasma Sintering, Friction Stir Welding, and Coldspray.  Microstructural and mechanical analyses will be performed, and we will collaborate with partner organizations for integrating the data into computational models in order to improve and predict the ballistic performance of armor materials and structures.
