EXPLOSIVE REACTIVE ARMOUR "NOZH" MODULES 

(Joint project of the State Enterprise Fundamental Center for Crucial Technologies “MICROTEC”, SD&TB IPS NASU, Scientific-and-Engineering Center "Materials Explosive Treatment " of Paton Electric Welding Institute of NAS of Ukraine and Kharkov Morozov Machine Building Design Bureau)

    Explosive reactive armour modules of cumulative action "NOZH" ("Knife") are intended for use in reactive explosive protection systems (REPS) of mobile or stationary objects against armor-piercing, hollow-charge shells, impact-cumulative ammunition such as " Self Forging Fragments " etc.
An explosive reactive armour module "NOZH" is a nonseparable structure, which works momentarily without special initiation means, needs no preparation for application, servicing, and repair.
    Modules "NOZH" have the following characteristics: high reliability (100 % of operation and protection against all types of antitank means), safety at firing from small arms, absence of  detonation from splinters and incendiary mixes, interchangeability with built-in 4C20 or 4C22 elements of the REPS (manufactured in Russian Federation) in proportion of 1:2, increased efficiency (1.8-2.7 times compared to 4C22), lowered demolition action on the armour (compared to 4C22), easy mounting, low cost.

 
MATERIALS, TECHNOLOGIES, AND STRUCTURAL ELEMENTS FOR DAMPING
HIGH-ENERGY PULSE ACTION

  • SD&TB IPS NASU together with SEFCCT "MICROTEC" develops methods for production of  hard composite materials from para-aramid fibers and manufacturing structural elements from special-purpose steels, ceramics, and composite materials for protection of carriers or stationary objects against high-energy pulse action.

  • The materials and structural elements developed ensure reduction of high-explosive action of standard elements of reactive explosive protection more than 2 times and allows protection of structural elements from splinters with the weight up to 4 g and velocity up to 2000 m/s.

  • Our experts develop original welding technologies for armored steel, which provide high uniformity of the chemical composition of welds (similar to the chemical composition of the welded steel), high strength of welded elements under conditions of powerful high-explosive action at a considerably lower (in comparison with standard technologies) cost and considerably higher welding rate.

  • We develop special structural elements, which allow damping powerful  (up to1.5-2 GPa or 7000 kN) axial high explosive actions on protected objects.
