  1. Integral Fuel Tank Self-sealing Protection


    The opportunity presented under this program is to develop a next-generation, self-sealing technology that can impart self-sealing capability to the most vulnerable areas of integral aircraft fuel tanks. Targeted application of the self-sealing materials will reduce the weight and fuel-volume penalty associated with conventional fuel bladder constructions. Under the Phase I program, the technical ...
