Ultrax/CLARA Hybrid-Reactive Armor

1635

Ultrax based plates, capable of stopping multiple hits of armor-piercing round up to 30mm. The specific weight of such armor is 70km/m2. The company has collaborated with Dynamit-Nobel, to develop a new reactive armor concept called CLARA, proposed as an add-on armor for the German Marder AIFV. The lightweight metal-free CLARA reactive armor module combines layers of sheet explosives and composites which effectively engage the shaped charge plasma jet of an incoming CE threat, but creates no fragments, as after the explosion the composite material disintegrates into chaff. When combined with the Ultrax base armor, the combined module provides protection both against RPG/ATGW attacks as well as KE threats, at a specific weight of approx. 270kg/m2.
