In response to the technological advancements made by BMDO and the need for efficient interconnecting devices and wiring in the next generation defense missiles, ACM proposes an enabling technology through the use of its Fibrous Monolith ceramic compositetechnology. ACM proposes to develop Fibrous Monolith composite electronic materials using low dielectric ceramics to conform its technique as a fabrication process for electronic materials. Specifically, ACM will engineer dielectric materials forpossibleuse in high power multilayer capacitors. Microfabrication by Coextrusion Melt Spinning (MCMS) will be used to make a multilayer capacitor to test this theory. MCMS is a modified FM coextrusion technique that will be used to create the MLCCarchitecture.The development of a tailored eletronic material for use in the electronic industry may be applicable to such needs as packaging materials, insulators, or as proposed, for use in MLCC's. ACM's current FM technology is already a low-cost,environmental friendly and robust technique.
