  6. Automation of Material Placement for Aircraft Radomes

    SBC: ACCUDYNE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: AF112118

    ABSTRACT: Accudyne proposes a SBIR program to develop an automated material placement process for aircraft radomes and demonstrate it by forming quartz cynate ester fabric over an existing radome tool. The process employs computer simulations to model the forming process and compute a 2D fabric pattern as well as a four degrees of motion machine to form the fabric over the curved radome tool. T ...
