Lumetrics Wins Transparent Armor SBIR Phase One

Lumetrics, Inc., a leading metrology design, engineering and manufacturing company, has been awarded a Phase One Small Business Innovative Research (SBIR) grant through the US Army and Department of Defense.

Lumetrics’ proposal addresses the need of developing a specialized measurement system capable of measuring a critical component to many armed forces vehicles, transparent armor.Lumetrics

Transparent armor, colloquially referred to as “bullet-proof glass,” is comprised of many layers of glass and plastics which must be non-destructively measured for quality control and layer identification purposes.

A device like this has the potential not only to lower the cost of  transparent armor manufacturing, but will most importantly help ensure our US forces receive the highest quality transparent armor for their vehicles and aircrafts.

Supported by Congresswoman Louise Slaughter ( NY25th District), this grant may lead to further development and commercialization of this technology for broader applications in the automotive, space exploration, and commercial window industries.

The development team comprising Dr. Filipp Ignatovich, Dr. Michael Marcus, Donald Gibson, and Kyle Hadcock are aiming to have a functional prototype system early next year.
