Anthropometric Dimensions Measured dimensions that describe the size and shape of the human body. These dimensions are often presented in the form of summary statistics that describe the range of body dimensions that are observed in a population. Anthropometry The scientific measurement and collection of data about human physical characteristics and the application (engineering anthropometry) of these data to the design and evaluation of systems, equipment, and facilities. Anti-fouling A chemical control of a surface to prevent the attachment or growth of marine organisms when submerged.

Anti-fouling A chemical control of a surface to prevent the attachment or growth of marine organisms when submerged. The toxicity can be invoked by careful selection of the metal itself, by chemical treatments, or by suitable coatings.

Ballistic Coefficient The numerical measure of the ability of a missile to overcome air resistance. It is dependent upon the mass, the diameter, and the configuration. Ballistic Protection System A ballistic protection system represents some combination of one or more elements made of basic armor materials or composites (in some cases supplemented by non-armor materials) to form an effective ballistic protection device. This includes installation equipment and hardware.
