Project Summary for 2002-LT-BX-K005

The goal of this project is to use existing information within the injury risk arena and apply it to develop a computer model to assess the risk of injury of non'lethal kinetic energy rounds. This is an area in which the non-lethal community has limited information, and work to produce models that predict risk assessment is significant. This is an important first step for future developments, and the next logical step in the process. This project will likely require several follow-up efforts to get to a final product, i.e., a working computer model which can simulate the human body as well as the projectile.
