Defence Research and Development Canada (DRDC) is Canada’s leader in defence and security science and technology. DRDC provides Canada’s military and national security groups with the knowledge and technological advantage to defend and protect Canada’s interests at home and abroad.
The purpose of the challenge is to acquire a modular, scalable, bullet-resistant plate prototype that can cover the range of potential threat environments that a soldier may face. This design should effectively protect the soldier while ensuring that they do not carry a heavier plate than is required for any given mission. Hard-armour systems or bullet-resistant plates should provide protection against rifle rounds.
