Abstract
This Phase I SBIR proposal is focused on the design and development of an all-composite personnel transport module (PTM) for the Navy LCAC hovercraft. The new composite PTM design is based on lightweight and durable TYCOR composite sandwich panel and innovative joint concepts. The composite PTM will offer reduced weight, improved corrosion resistance, lower acquisition and life-cycle cost, improved human condition, faster and easier assembly and optional ballistic protection. The team includes WebCore Technologies, CDI Marine and University of Delaware. The work includes design, structural analysis, fabrication and testing of PTM components and assembly of a sub-scale PTM section for design and process demonstration.
