This SBIR Phase I effort examines the feasibility of producing metal-metal high density composite materials with sufficient strength to survive severe shock through mechanical deformation. As with many advanced materials, a critical obstacle to their implementation is very high manufacturing costs, particularly for the starting master alloy billets. To surmount this cost barrier, this Phase I program will examine an innovative, yet affordable and relatively simple mechanical deformation production technology based on compacting and deforming the elementals through step by step processes such as forging and extrusion.
