Title: Rapid Assembly of Durable Composite Radome Panels Using Low-Cost Snap-Lock Connection Technology
Agency / Branch: DOD / USAF
Contract: FA8222-10-C-0006
Award Amount: $99,996.00
 

Abstract:

Ebert Composites Corporation proposes to develop for the Air Force a new type of f?osnap-lockf?? connection for composite radome sandwich panels. This will leverage Ebertf?Ts rich history of finding alternative fastening methods in joining composites. Traditional joining means of either mechanical fasteners, or adhesives, or both, may not provide the optimum connection for thin walled sandwich panels. A 100% composite edge-joint is projected to be designed, meeting all objectives in the Phase I solicitation. Additionally, an innovative solution will be sought to interface composites to concrete without the typically alkali-attack one would anticipate. BENEFIT: The development of a 100% composite snap-together joint for the use in land-based radomes will be commercialized through use in US Air Force radar applications worldwide. Benefits include a lower installation cost, less maintenance, less RF interference, and a longer lasting radome. Further commercialization would use technology developed through this R&D program in atmospheric radomes used by the NOAA and overseas governments.
