DAVY, Defence Science and Technology Organisation, Australia1 Abstract: This chapter discusses the history of the Australian LAND 125 Soldier Modernisation Project from its inception in 1994 to 2011, and describes how science and technology support to the project has changed over time in response to changing stakeholder expectations and the capability life-cycle phase.

However, our understanding of the more subtle effects is still somewhat incomplete, with inter-yarn and inter-layer interactions remaining to be fully characterised and with models which are only validated across relatively narrow sets of conditions and materials. The impact and capture of a projectile by multilayer textile armour can be summarised as follows. Upon impact with the first layer of the armour, the material under the projectile is instantaneously accelerated to the projectile velocity.

This strategic environment subsequently influenced the direction of L125. By mid-2004, it had become apparent that a suitable ‘off-the-shelf’ soldier combat system was unlikely either to be developed or to be available from the Published by Woodhead Publishing Limited, 2012 Assessing military equipment requirements and capability 31 wider community by 2007. , 2003) influenced the way that this would be achieved. The intention was to use a US SCS power and data core with Australian peripherals, with the consequence that if the US core was unavailable then the resultant system would have neither the desired nor the required level of integration.
