Ballistic Resistance of Body Armor NIJ Standard-0101.06 is an NIJ (National Institute of Justice) Standard that establishes minimum performance requirements and test methods for the ballistic resistance of personal body armor protecting the torso area. The standard is limited to ballistic resistance only and does not address resistance from knives or other sharply pointed objects.
NIJ Standard-0115.00 establishes minimum performance requirements and test methodology for body armor that is designed to protect the torso against stab and slash weapons. Body armor covered by this standard are grouped into one of two protection classes (‘Edged Blade’ and ‘Spike’) depending on the type of threat environment. Within each protection class, the armor is further categorized into one of three protection classes (1, 2 and 3).
