New Swedish knowledge about crash safety

During the fall 2010 and spring 2011 have The Swedish Armed Forces conducted crash tests in cooperation with a test lab in Sweden. The purpose was to study the effect on the human body when personal equipment e.g. combat wests, bulletproof wests and combat helmets are worn. Initially we can say that the kind and configuration of the passive safety systems are central in the consequences of a crash with protected vehicles.
