Abstract:

Transparent conductive indium tin oxide (ITO) coatings are used on the canopies of certain USAF aircraft for a variety of electromagnetic functions. However, the aircraft canopies suffer from short service lifetimes and must be replaced often because today's ITO coatings exhibit poor mechanical durability and scratch resistance as aircraft fly through rain and dust. The need for frequent replacements results in highly reduced mission capable rates. In Phase-I of this effort, Alameda Applied Sciences Corporation will use its highly energetic deposition technology to synthesize indium zinc oxide (IZO) transparent conductive coatings with improved durability, while maintaining >80% transmissivity from 400 - 1200 nm and <25 ohms per square. The overall goal of this research is to extend the service life of aircraft canopies by tenfold over existing ITO coating materials.
