The Phase II effort is to enhance the deposition rate of the pilot reactor, under design and construction, at the planned production facility. Currently the coating rate is limited to a reference rate of 1X. This work is to demonstrate, in the Synterials reactor, a rate of 5X. This rate is limited by the constraints on the pilot reactor. These improvements would be a major step toward reducing coating and capital equipment costs. In addition it would extend the time period that the pilot reactor would satisfy the production requirements before a new reactor would be required.
