Yes, I read that also. But I didn't garner any info about the possibility of it being used in personnel armor.

That's something I noticed myself when I'd read it. They seem very confident in its abilities to stop a bullet, and claim it's 1/3 lighter than plates, yet they tended to focus on its use with armored vehicles. I would think that their primary focus with such a product would be to use it in plate carriers. Guess time will tell.
We will not comply.

It may be lighter but may also be too bulky for body armor. There are a lot of unknowns here. But it does sound promising.

This is what I was thinking it probably has to be much thicker than regular plates to stop a bullet.
