Magnesium Alloys for Land-Based Defense Applications
Improve mission performance through Luxfer MEL Technologies Lightweight Materials
Todays Infantry ground soldiers carry an average of 27 pounds (12kg) of personal protective equipment, in addition to their weapon, ammunition, water, and other gear. However, during recent conflicts, dismounted ground combat troops were found to carry 90 to 140 pounds(40kg) or more, significantly impacting mobility, causing fatigue, and reducing mission performance.
