Title: Advanced Divert and Attitude Control Materials, Attitude Control System (ACS) Thruster Body Application

Contract: W9113M-04-C-0072
Award Amount: $749,972.00
 

Abstract:

Fiber Materials, Inc. (FMI), teamed with Aerojet, proposes to demonstrate a low cost material concept applicable to the SM-3 ACS. The material, a 4-dimensionally reinforced carbon-carbon containing silicon carbide to eliminate oxidation and erosion, will offer significant benefits in comparison to the refractory metals now in use such as rhenium, columbium, and molybdenum. Refractory and other metals used for ACS components (e.g. inconel) are high in cost and density, are difficult to fabricate into complex shapes required for ACS components, and are difficult to join to other materials. The proposed program will develop and demonstrate a composite thruster body designed for the SM-3 ACS that is lighter in weight, is comprised of fewer parts, and has higher performance than the current refractory metal thruster body.
