The Advanced Composite Structures group at Physical Sciences Inc. has partnered with the University of Virginia to develop a high temperature, ceramic syntactic foam that can be fabricated using additive manufacturing (AM) techniques. The AM ceramic insulator is compatible for co-processing with other CMC components such as aeroshells, fins, and additional hypersonic flight vehicle control surfaces, further decreasing processing time and costs. The work will enable the additive manufacturing of a novel closed-cell ceramic syntactic foam for structural insulators. Approved for Public Release | 22-MDA-11339 (13 Dec 22)
