Flexible Body Armor w/ hard armor ballistic characteristics is a truly revolutionary leap in the evolution of battlefield armor. Liquid Armor could potentially eliminate the need for rigid ballistic inserts, which not only break up larger, high-velocity projectiles such as rifle bullets, but also protect the wearer from the blunt trauma injuries associated with soft armor kinetic energy transfer. In short, tactical body armor would be lighter and more flexible, which in turn reduces fatigue. In addition, liquid armor's use in EOD (Explosive Ordnance Disposal) suits, especially in the arms and legs, would dramatically increase the flexibility of bomb technicians and allow them to better perform their duties.
