Abstract
The proposed Phase I SBIR program will develop a metalorganic CVD coating process to apply refractory metal coatings to rifled gun barrel tubes. This environmentally friendly, conformal coating system is ideally suited to medium caliber weapon systems and offers a cost effective method to coat and potentially rebuild gun barrels. Specifically, alloys of tungsten, chromium, and rhenium will be applied as 10-60 mil coatings using MOCVD and supplied for vented bomb erosion testing.
