Title: Ultra-Lightweight SiC Mirror Structures
Agency: NASA
Contract: N/A
Award Amount: $600,000.00
 

Abstract:

SiC based mirrors offer great potential for space-borne structures. Current support technology is limited due to poor fracture toughness of RBSiC. This proposal offers a novel, composite technology to produce near zero CTE structure exhibiting only 4 kg/m2 aerial density.
