AbstractFiber Materials Inc. teamed with Boeing Corporation propose to design and manufacture representative Common Aero-Vehicle (CAV) acreage TPS sections that will satisfactorily fulfill the currently planned trajectory for the global reach vehicle. The TPS sections will include the aero-shell surface structure (including any coatings or treatments), insulating materials, and support structures. This Phase II effort will investigate and demonstrate assembly and integration methods/techniques related to a dual layer (discrete aeroshell and insulation) system. Furthermore, this Phase II effort will demonstrate manufacturing methods appropriate for scale-up and supporting flight qualified hardware fabrication. FMI will conduct testing to confirm critical performance criteria are met under representative conditions at the conclusion of this Phase II effort.
