The Advanced Bomb Suit (ABS) is a full-body ensemble that uses new material technology and design to improve protection, comfort and ergonomics. To minimize weight and maximize flexibility, it provides fragmentation protection at various levels, specific to body regions, based on wounding potential. It provides blast overpressure protection for the front of the thorax and impact protection for the head and spine. Flame resistant materials also protect against heat and flame. The suit includes an ice-based cooling system to extend mission duration. A hand protection module provides increased protection. Soldiers can doff the system in less than 30 seconds. All ballistic inserts are removable to facilitate laundering and repair. The system can incorporate future communications, performance and capability upgrades.
