Paper Abstract

This paper describes radiation and drop testing performed in support of the U.S. Army Strategic Defense Command's program to develop more robust baffle materials. It gives the shock and vibration environments and describes the techniques used to capture and count the particles generated. Also, observations are made on the effect of shock and radiation on the optical performance of the baffle materials.
