Abstract:

This SBIR project will address the combined effects of aerothermal heating, rain erosion, and moisture and gas diffusion on the degradation of interceptor missile radomes designed for hypersonic travel. A novel method of protecting hypersonic interceptor missiles from the rigors experienced at velocities several times the speed of sound is proposed. The technology is based on the conversion of a polysilylene into silicate using novel conversion methods. The coating will be applied as a solution of polymer that will be subsequently bonded intramolecularly (crosslinked) to form a tough, insoluble material. The crosslinked polymer will then be converted to a thermally stable silicate capable of mitigating high temperature degradation and weather/atmospheric erosion. The coating will be a reinforcement layer designed to act in concert with current ceramic radomes and composite radome materials currently in development.
