Abstract:

Currently used Al components for the optical seeker structure suffer from low specific modulus. As a result, re-design efforts with Al components, lack full realization of weight savings. The use of SiC-SiC composites for optical structures provides for significant weight savings, combined with improved structural performance. Combination of SiC-SiC structural components with SiC-SiC optical components, offers numerous design advantages (matched CTE). This proposal offer unique materials and optical fabrication approaches leading to a fully integrated SiC-SiC composite optical seeker assembly
