Abstract
The objective of the proposed work is to validate the concept of an injection moldable in-situ reinforced barium alumino silicate (IRBAS) missile radome using a Hotblox pre-ceramic siloxane binder system. In Phase I, ATC will optimize formulation, mixing and molding process development. ATC will work with Lockheed Martin to develop sintering processes and to characterize the material. At the end of Phase I, ATC expects this project will result in an injection moldable IRBAS material that has been molded into subscale radomes (4 in. tall) and that has been characterized (TRL=3) for use in missile radome applications.
