Research Institution

General Sciences, Inc. (GSI) proposes to conduct a proof-of-concept effort based on materials development, ablation and thermal conductivity measurements as well as analytical predictions on expected flight performance.The main objective of the proposed effort is to exploit the results from the Phase I effort in order to scale-up a process for a new resin/composite which will significantly improve insulation properties and ablation rate for current and future Thermal Protection Systems (TPS) applied to Navy RVs as well as other DOD agencies.The main objective includes technology transition to a manufacturing partner for RV applications satisfying higher heating loads than current carbon phenolic (CP) can accommodate.
