Abstract
The U.S. Navy has significant interest in the development of advanced material enabling shock mitigation in LCS-module connections systems. Composite Technology Development (CTD) proposes a multidisciplinary approach to develop and qualify novel, polymer materials for incorporation into commercial-grade twist-lock connections systems. These materials will be based on new and existing chemistries which have demonstrated significant promise in achieving the program’s goals. CTD will work with key industry partners to demonstrate the material’s applicability to twist-lock connection systems by adopting an iterative design approach to be performed in tandem with the material development and evaluation efforts. This approach will produce a connection system design incorporating the developed technology, which demonstrates significant performance improvements over existing state-of-the-art connection systems.
