Abstract:

ABSTRACT: BTE proposes a multi-component architecture composed of structural composites and thin layers of optimal shielding materials. The structure will provide a 65 to 75% weight reduction over an aluminum or steel enclosure while providing the same structural rigidity and comparable EMI/EMP isolation. The enclosure uses proven technologies, and uses inexpensive stock materials. The enclosure provides for heat rejection, rugged gasketing for recurring maintenance, and can actually increase the interior enclosure volume for a given form factor when compared with aluminum. BENEFIT: The benefit of this technology is that the weight of enclosures can be decreased 65 to 75% without sacrificing strength, shielding, durability, versatility, or price.
