Abstract
The maturation of Titanium Matrix Composite into an affordable material system with production experience on the F-16 opens up a wide series of opportunities for improved propulsion performance. This SBIR builds on the baseline TMC demonstrations being conducted by FMW and ATK and extends them to advanced systems. The use of configured residual stress states and enhanced Titanium matrix systems offers the potential for 25% or more improvements in manufacturing for tactical missile systems. The proposed program will complete analytical models of the proposed material systems enhancements to an AMRAAM core and conducts critical material testing. A full scale Phase II case will be developed for Phase II fabrication.
