Advanced Impulse Reduction (AIR) is an exciting technology that reduces the extent of the effects experienced by people and structures when an explosive is detonated. It does this by managing the kinetic energy loaded on to it during an explosive event. The energy is slowed and reduced so effectively that the resulting energy felt by the structure or product lined by AIR is minimized.
Formed into a thin and lightweight composite (multi-layered material), we have integrated AIR into our blast and ballistic barrier solution, OBEX, and as an enhancement attachment for ballistic shields, Athene.
Saleria worked with world-leading organizations to develop and verify the explosive blast mitigation properties of AIR. This was completed through a series of modeling, simulation, and both laboratory and field testing.
