Body armor technology continually improves in performance and endurance with the introduction of new designs and materials. Composite layered armor systems comprised of ceramics and fabric based materials are at the leading edge. Over the years, these systems have seen preference over their metal counterparts due to reduced weight. High performance polyethylene (Spectra, Dyneema), Aramids (Kevlar, Twaron, Zylon) and other composite materials, [1] have further improved dynamic resistance in body armor with reasonable strength-to-weight ratio.
