Nowhere is this more obvious than in military applications of Iraq and Afghanistan where roadside bombs and other Improvised Explosive Devices, IEDS, continue to become more powerful and more complex.

    It is our hope this site will help designers, engineers, manufacturers from both the civilian and military sector sector meets this challenging application by providing them with easy access to body armor and IED information they might otherwise have at their fingertips, or even be able to find.
