Abstract:

THIS PROPOSAL OUTLINES A RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM TO COAT ELECTRONICS ENCAPSULATING MATERIALS WITH CONDUCTING POLYMERS TO PROVIDE SHIELDING FROM RADIATED ELECTROMAGNETIC RADIATION. THE SHIELDING PROPERTIES OF DIFFERENT CONDUCTING POLYMERS AT DIFFERENT THICKNESSES TO MICROWAVE ENERGY WILL BE TESTED AND ANALYZED. THE EFFECT OF COMBINING OR LAYERING MATERIALS WILL BE INVESTIGATED. DURING PHASE II A MINIMUM OF 25 FASCAM ANTI-TANK ASSEMBLIES WILL BE ENCAPSULATED WITH IMPROVED MATERIALS AND SUBJECTED TO MICROWAVE ENERGY. A PRIMARY OBJECTIVE IS TO DEVELOP PROCESSIBLE CONDUCTING POLYMERS WITH HIGH ELECTRICAL CONDUCTIVITY AND GOOD ENVIRONMENTAL STABILITY. THE EMI SHIELDING EFFECTIVENESS DEPENDS DIRECTLY ON THE CONDUCTIVITY OF THE POLYMER.
