Abstract
The object of this Phase I program is develop missile cable shielding based on carbon nanotube papers (buckypapers). Current metal shielding imposes a severe weight penalty, and the shielded cables are rigid and difficult to route. Therefore, it is critical to develop non-metallic cable shielding to provide protection from electromagnetic fields at reduced weight and with increased cable flexibility. NanoTechLabs Inc. has optimized buckypaper products to enhance processability with various resin systems that can be used for cable shielding materials in missile systems and provide the required shielding performance.
