Abstract:

A COMBINED THEORETIACL AND EXPERIMENTAL EFFORT IS PROPOSED FOR DEVELOPING A SUITABLE EPM MATERIAL WHICH PROVIDES SUBSTANTIAL PROTECTION AGAINST ANTICIPATED LASER THREATS. A NEW MATERIAL CONCEPT IS PROPOSED WHICH PROVIDES FOR DISSIPATION OF INCIDENT LASER ENERGY TO REFLECTION, ABLATION AND ANISOTROPIC THERMAL CONDUCTION. THIS MATERIAL IS EXPECTED TO INCREASE THE LASER INTERACTION TIME REQUIRED FOR STRUCTURAL FAILURE BY A FACTOR OF THREE OVER PRESENT CANDIDATE MATERIALS WITH NO SERIOUS WEIGHT PENALTY. THE CONCEPT IS BASED ON A MODIFICATION OF CURRENT ELASTOMER-TYPE MATERIALS SO AS TO RETAIN ALL THE DESIRABLE FEATURES OF SUCH MATERIALS WHILE PROVIDING THE ADDITIONAL PROTECTION AGAINST LASER IRRADIATION. THE PROPOSED MATERIAL WOULD MINIMIZE ANY ANTICIPATED PROBLEMS OF ATTACHMENT AND WOULD BE SUITABLE FOR RETROFITTING EXISTING EQUIPMENT.
