International Ballistics Society
The Society is sad to announce the passing of one of our most eminent members, Professor Louis Zernow, on Thursday, May 14th 2015. Louis will be remembered as an outstanding ballistician. He was a keen supporter and founding member of the Society. He commissioned the Louis and Edith Zernow award that rewards the best paper presented during the International Symposium on Ballistics. He will be sorely missed.
The New York Times By JAMES DAO August 17, 2011, 5:47 PM An audit by the Pentagon's inspector general has found that the Army did a poor job of testing the ballistic plates used in body armor and therefore cannot be certain that the equipment is adequately protecting soldiers.
The 30th International Symposium on Ballistics (ISB) will be held at Long Beach, California.
The conference co-chairs are Sidney Chocron and James Walker of Southwest Research Institute. The NDIA (National Defense Industrial Association) is helping to organise the 30th ISB.
