Abstract
CHEMICAL VAPOR DEPOSITION (CVD) IS A UNIQUE TECHNOLOGY FOR FABRICATING MATERIALS WHICH CAN PROVIDE EXTERNAL PROTECTION FROM LASER AND OTHER DIRECTED ENERGY SOURCES AS WELL AS KINETIC ENERGY HARDENING AND NUCLEAR RADIATION PROTECTION FOR ELECTRONICS. IT HAS ALREADY BEEN DEMONSTRATED THAT ULTRAMET'S A200 COATING, FABRICATED BY CVD, IS THE 'HARDEST' MATERIAL TESTED TO DATE UNDER LASER RADIATION. IN THIS PROGRAM ULTRAMET PROPOSES TO DEMONSTRATE THE FEASIBILITY OF LOADING A LOW DENSITY CARBON FOAM MATERIAL WITH BORON CARBIDE (B[4]C) OR TITANIUM DIBORID (TIB[2]) TO PROVIDE PROTECTION AGAINST KINETIC ENERGY WEAPONS. THE INCIDENT SURFACE WILL ALSO BE COATED WITH A HIGHLY REFLECTIVE MATERIAL, A200, AND EVALUATION WILL BE PERFORMED UNDER LASER RADIATION.
