ABSTRACT

High Impact Technology’s BattleJacket® Fuel Cell Containment System (FCCS) is a revolutionary technology designed to minimize or prevent leakage of fuel tankers due to small-arms fire, which can cause hazardous conditions for troops transporting fuel as well as operational risks caused by the resulting lack of fuel.

APPLICATION

A specialized process was developed which requires a closed-in spray booth with unique equipment to apply the additive. A Mobile spray-application facility has been developed which brings the process to any location.

 

TECHNICAL SPECIFICATIONS

COMPONENT

BattleJacket® technology was developed by testing multiple elastomeric spray coating formulations for ballistic performance and selecting the best performer. The BattleJacket®(FCCS) coating is based on a specially formulated fire resistant urethane similar to the Rhino Linings USA (Rhino) spray-in bed liner modified for military applications. A special swellable super absorbent polymer was selected to be used as the basis of the self-sealing mechanism. These beads are spray encapsulated into a special layer which, when exposed to fuel, swell into a solid. This additive acts in conjunction with the urethane to tightly seal off the undesired entrance and exit holes created by a projectile

TECHNOLOGY

TACOM / TARDEC witnessed early generations of the spray coating, and after further development /refinements by HIT, ended up testing and approving it for use in theater. The US military designation for this spray coating technology is called Fuel Tank Self-Sealing (FTSS®).
