Abstract

Indonesia, the governing department should have standard rules into the production of the combat helmet for the army and how manufacturing processes should consider on the material and the design shape in the future, such as lowering weight and adding mobility to the user. Ultimately, the suggestions made in this report can plausibly change on how the governing standards of Indonesian combat helmets for the army can move into the next level and finally can demonstrate a higher level of quality in many parts of the helmet design that has been examined and analysed with the support of academic research and testing protocols.

Currently, the department needs to focus on the potential fragmentation in the future such as threats, especially brain injury from bullet effects or other ballistic threats. As a result, it is arguable that the army and the head office of production for combat helmets should concern on the operational testing and evaluation before making the decision to produce the proposed design of the helmet. This can, therefore, improve the design of the combat helmet for the army in Indonesia.
