MIHRIL II (Multi Impact Hybrid Layers)
progressive ballistic armor for defense forces
The MIHRIL II project is a continuing effort to develop multi-threat-multi-hit protection of law enforcements officers. The aim of the project is to develop and implement a new ergonomically optimized ballistic protection device for the individual, which will provide sufficient protection of the user against possible attacks by all long-range weapons and stopping effect according to VPAM 7 - VPAM 10. Dimensional optimization will meet the requirements for weight and cost minimization, at the same time the requirement for good ballistic properties with regard to the anatomy and physical properties of the human body. The panel will be modular and shapeable to adapt anatomically to the human body. The protective device will meet the resistance requirement for at least 3 hits. The maximum rate of injury to the subject by multihits will be determined, i.e. guaranteed.
Key part of the project are.
The project started 1.1.2023 and will last 4 years.

MIHRIL (Multi Impact Hybrid Layers)
protection against street threats
In 2019, the company 4M SYSTEMS a.s. together with the Faculty of Biomedical Engineering of the Czech Technical University in Prague received financial support within the framework of the grant programs of the Technology Agency of the Czech Republic (TAČR) for the development and improvement of the current design of the protective ballistic insert, which is primarily intended to protect the user from firearms and stabbing weapons.
The project is called MIHRIL - Multi Impact Hybrid Layers - protection against street threats and within TAČR it falls under the category of TREND - Results with Potential for Competitiveness - New Products, Production Processes and Services - program of the Ministry of Industry and Trade.
One of the objectives is to measure and determine the values of the biomechanical forces that act on a person and his body parts at the moment of attack, especially during a cold weapon attack. These values will be used to correctly determine the technical parameters of the protective pad. The results of the project will be consulted with the Office for Technical Standardization, Metrology and State Testing.
The project involved instructors from most of the armed forces of the Czech Republic, i.e. the police, army, prison service and the Prague Municipal Police. The project included an analysis of documented assaults on the territory of the Czech Republic. The Prison Service of the Czech Republic provided information on amateur-made weapons to the prisoners it detained during regular searches.
The result of the project should be a quality protective insert that will reliably protect the user from threats to his/her operation, while ensuring comfort throughout the wearing period and will also be competitive on world markets.
The project is designed to last for 3 years.
