Manufacturing of composite nanomaterials for MDA applications
Agency / Branch:
DOD / MDA
Employing of nanoparticles and carbon nanotubes opens new avenue in fabrication of new nanocoposite materials exhibiting quite a number of unique physical properties. ALTAIR Center proposes to develop an innovative process suitable for manufacturing of alarge variety of the nanocomposite materials for various applications in MDA missions. The proposed general technology is applicable to fabrication of many materials with quite different characteristics. The simple and cost-effective process can beperformed at room temperature. It does not require any expensive clean room facilities.In Phase I of this project we will prove feasibility of the proposed concept by demonstrating the innovative process. In the Phase II of the project the developed technology will be completely optimized and incorporated into a commercially viablemanufacturing process. By the end of the project a prototype system for manufacturing of various nanocomposite materials ready for immediate commercialization will be developed and delivered to DoD. In addition to immediate military applications, the proposed universal technology and system for manufacturing of the nanocomposite materials will find important applications in several markets including: aerospace and automotive industry, ship building,optoelectronic and photonic, medicine, etc.
