Abstract
This Phase I SBIR program will result in the availability of a high strength, closed cell titanium foam material suitable for fabricating propellant tank structures. The resulting titanium foams are predicted to have >350Mpa strengths at densitied <2.4g/cc, while providing combined structural/thermal insulation functions. Through a teaming arrangement, suitability for propellant tank fabrication will be verified through testing.
