Blast-X

US Global Nanospace Inc. (USGN)

Explosion mitigation panels, developed form G-LAM structures, and are approved for use in up-armored Humvee. It combines a face sheet designed to quench hot gases instantly and attenuate shock waves. A honeycomb core cushions the impact, adding structural strength, while a core medium, filling the honeycomb, is devised to rapidly cool the blast environments and extinguish flame fronts from burning gases, dust and mist. A ballistic back panel contains the blast fragments and debris.
