India Manufacturing Bullet Proof Vest Made with Thermoplastic Composite Materials

Shantanu Bhowmik, Ph.D. claims to have developed a Bullet Proof Jacket constructed with thermoplastic composite materials and carbon. While Dr. Bhowmik has not presented any test trials for validation, Larsen & Toubro Ltd, has submitted proposals for development of the jacket in association with Amrita University Coimbatore.
