Armor Dynamics Magmacoreâ„¢ Reactive Armor is a completely new generation of energized armor systems capable of defeating highly lethal threats. Armor Dynamics is under contract with the Army (TARDEC) to refine Magmacoreâ„¢ Advanced Reactive Systems for use in Joint Light Tactical Vehicles; this program started on September 28, 2010. The result is a unique armor system that is extremely effective against the threats that cause most combat casualties sustained in Iraq and Afghanistan. Armor Dynamics energized system supplants conventional reactive armor.
Armor Dynamics Magmacoreâ„¢ Passive Armor consists of ceramic cells arrayed in a patented matrix, held in place by a proprietary polyurethane material. Magmacoreâ„¢ Passive Armor is applicable to medium and heavy-weight vehicle armor, and can also be used in building hardening applications (Currently, the United States Corps of Engineers is using thermoset e-glass panels for temporary roads, building materials, bridge hardening and blast mitigation). It is especially effective against small arms and rifle fire, and can withstand multiple impacts from even high-powered rifles.
