BIOKINETICS plays key role in the development of an updated stab/slash #bodyarmor performance standard.
• A report on stab weapon characterization for corrections environments has been released by the National Criminal Justice Reference Service of the National Institute of Justice. Get the report athttps://www.ncjrs.gov/pdffiles1/nij/grants/249551.pdf or see https://justnet.orgfor more news.
• The report prepared by Biokinetics and Wayne State University covers a survey of over 1000 weapons found in corrections institutes across the U.S. and summarizes their ability to penetrate stab resistant body armour through a down selection process involving physical and performance based characteristics.
• Exemplar stab threats were developed for updates to the NIJ 0115.00 test methodology for Stab Resistance of Personal Body Armor.
• A summary of the program can also be found in the 2014 Personal Armour Systems Symposium (PASS) proceedings. See http://www.biokinetics.com/about-us/publications.html.
