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.
In June 2017, India’s Ministry of Defense approved the vest and noted that manufacturing it for the Indian Army and paramilitary forces would both save lives and money.
The Bullet Proof Jackets weighed about four pounds (standard police and army jackets weighed about forty pounds). The new jackets were called a “game changer.”
