Abstract
Not Available The objective of this Phase I proposal is to develop carbon nanotube composites for use in demanding electronic applications on Navy aircraft and ships. Foster-Miller proposes to meet this objective by developing an innovative conductive gap treatment system for stealth aircraft. To assist with identification of materials and requirements for low observable coatings, Foster-Miller has teamed with Northrop-Grumman, a leading manufacturer of stealth aircraft for the DoD. The proposed Foster-Miller gap sealant will be comprised of a unique combination of materials which focus on improving composite performance through the use of carbon nanotube technology. To improve nanotube adhesion to the matrix resin, and therefore further improve the mechanical and electrical properties of the composite, Foster-Miller will functionalize the nanotubes to react with and chemically bond to the matrix resin. In Phase I, Foster-Miller will complete preliminary electrical and mechanical evaluation on gap sealant test specimens and further investigate other EMI and low observable coating applications for carbon nanotube technology.
