Heatmasters Poland sp z o.o., as part of a consortium of companies, participates in the European project under the name: Development of the technology for producing a lightweight observation and defense container (LOOK) from ultra-high-strength nanostructured steels
Project No. POIR 4.1.4 -00-0047 / 16
Project co-financed by the European Union from the European Regional Development Fund
The main goal of the project is to develop the construction and implementation of an innovative light-armored observation and defense container designed to secure and protect soldiers or officers performing operational tasks during peace and during war or stabilization operations (e.g. control and defense points, bases, or other strategic facilities, airports, installation).
The project envisages the construction of a container that meets Level 2 protection in accordance with NATO Stanag 4569A, with an extension to a higher penetration resistance by selected types of anti-tank shells. The goal of the project will be achieved by using sheets of nanostructured bainitic steel, which are characterized by high resistance to high-energy impact points. The use of sheets made of nanostructured steels will contribute to the improvement of at least two product performance parameters:
The tasks of Heatmasters within the consortium include:
The leader of the project is the Institute for Ferrous Metallurgy in Gliwice.
