Abstract
Modern military aircraft utilize thin resistive films on many surfaces to meet specific electromagnetic design requirements. These films are traditionally produced films do not offer the combination of durability, electrical resistance control, and material substrate compatibility that is ideal for their end-use application. Eikos demonstrated the ability of its Invisicon technology to achieve a wide range of electrical resistivities on a variety of substrate materials with fine control over accuracy and precision. The Invisicon technology is capable of exceptional electrical properties and durability on traditional substrates. Furthermore, the same technology offers exciting possibilities for use on a wide variety challenging surfaces, some of which could enable new designs, capabilities, and production methods suitable for future systems. Rapid transition of this technology into legacy platforms is ensured since only traditional processing methods are employed, many aspects of this technology are already commercial, and we will first seek to supplant legacy products before attempting to insert this technology into new applications. The next phase of this development effort will be focused on producing and qualifying precision coatings. Parts will be scaled up, produced at various resistivity levels, tested, and then qualified by our partners.
