US Army to test IperionX-made titanium plates


Australian-listed IperionX has signed an agreement with the US Army to produce high-strength titanium plate components for testing on its ground vehicles.

The Test Services Agreement and Statement of Work with the US Army Combat Capabilities Development Command Ground Vehicle Systems Centre (DEVCOM GVSC) will focus on the ballistic testing properties of IperionX’s materials.

Following testing, DEVCOM GVSC may pass these results to the manufacturers of US Army ground vehicles for use in future designs. These OEMs include General Dynamics, BAE Systems, American Rheinmetall Defense, Oshkosk Corporation, and AM General.

“We are honoured to collaborate with DEVCOM GVSC to evaluate our titanium products for US Army ground vehicles,” IperionX CEO Anastasios Arima says.

The titanium plates to be tested will be made using power metallurgy production methods with IperionX’s advanced titanium angular power.
