Abstract
The purpose of this project is to determine the feasibility of utilizing metal matrix composite (MMC) filament winding for manufacturing missile components for BMD systems. Through this effort Touchstone will demonstrate an innovative manufacturing process for advanced MMC materials that will enhance the performance of axial propulsion booster components for missile defense interceptors. Motor case analogs will be produced and evaluated by way of hydrostatic pressure testing. A trade study will also be performed to quantify the benefits of using MMC materials for applications that meet current and future MDA needs. This technology will provide a low-cost means of inserting MMC materials into BMD systems for improved performance.
