Abstract
Etruscan Executives, Inc. plans to continue the Phase I effort of this SBIR topic by bypassing the issues associated with the traditional use of thermoset plastics in the development of functional large ground-based radomes, instead using thermoplastic materials and innovative manufacturing processes to create a functional radome design for a radar system of interest to the Air Force. This proposal describes in detail the following: Phase II technical objectives, Phase II work plan, past work related to this proposal (namely Phase I efforts of this SBIR topic), relationship of this proposal's objectives with future research and development, commercialization strategy, key personnel including resumes, facilities and equipment to be utilized, involved subcontractors and consultants, and support (prior, current, or pending) of similar proposals or awards. It is our belief that a radome comparable in electromagnetic and structural performance and superior in impact resistance and environmental factors will ultimately result from our application of thermoplastic technology to the development of large ground-based radomes as described in this Phase II proposal.
