Research Institution
Cornerstone Research Group Inc., (CRG) will use our unique suite of smart materials technologies to prototype a structurally adaptive wing for integration with Lockheed Martin's Low Cost Autonomous Attack System (LOCAAS). We will use CRG's Shape MemoryPolymer (SMP), Dynamic Modulus Composites (DMC), and Dynamic Modulus Foam (DMF) in conjunction with engineering design, process development, fabrication, and other supporting technologies as needed to accomplish the goals and requirements set forth byLockheed Martin Missiles and Fire Control. Together, these materials technologies support the concept of adaptive structures extremely well. The development of this adaptive structure is expected to directly benefit the Air Force, Lockheed Martin (LMCO)and Cornerstone Research Group (CRG). This program will develop the technology necessary to achieve morphing missiles, aircraft, and many other innovative adaptive structure concepts critical the near future of the Air Force. For LMCO this technologyincrease their ability to meet the system goals for multiple DoD applications near and far term. Specifically, it will enable their LOCAAS as well as future and/or current missile improved performance characteristics. For CRG, the development of thistechnology to integration and manufacturing will demonstrate the benefits CRG can offer as an R&D Service Company and innovator. Additionally, this technology has a commercialization path already established with the LMCO relationship and therefore, willbe well poised for generating a CRG industries division for contract manufacturing of adaptive structures in general.
