Abstract

Hypersonic vehicles and weapons systems offer the ability to quickly strike across the globe and are essential for the future of the U.S. armed forces. Operating these systems at hypersonic speeds presents new engineering challenges. Current high temperature RF cables are limited to 1000C operation and RF connectors to 600C. In this proposed phase I effort, GTL will leverage current developments in a funded DARPA effort as well as in-house production methods to develop high temperature RF cables and connections capable of 1200-1500C operation. Evaluation samples will be produced and tested in order to demonstrate the feasibility of the methods.
