Abstract:

Technology Assessment & Transfer, Inc. (TA&T), with subcontractor Cima Nanotech (St. Paul, MN) and technical support from Texstars, Inc. (Grand Prarie, TX), propose an inexpensive, durable integrated coating system for aircraft canopies which possesses radio signature, erosion resistant, and electrostatic discharge (ESD) functionalities. The integrated coating will utilize Cima Nanotech's transparent, self-assembling cellular SANTE film technology as the highly conductive radar signature film, and TA&T will develop UV-curable, nanoparticle-filled oligomer coatings with erosion resistance and ESD properties. Coatings on test coupons will be evaluated at the University of Dayton Research Institute and Texstars, Inc. BENEFIT: These multifunctional coatings could also be used on commercial aircraft canopies, as well as on electronics where electromagnetic interference shielding and/or antistatic properties of abrasion resistant transparent coatings are needed, such as touch-screen displays.
