in protection material systems. A better basic understanding of the strengthening mechanisms in magnesium, especially the development of ultra-fine-grained magnesium alloys through severe plastic deformation, could be highly beneficial. Magnesium-based fibers are also worthy of exploration.

Finding 5-18. The development of bonding materials (adhesives, brazes, and solders) whose elastic impedances and thermal expansion coefficients match those of the materials to be bonded will improve the ballistic and blast performance of laminated armor.
