Research Institution
Advanced missile radomes require robust high temperature materials for high speed flight. Current advanced radome materials are limited by thermal, electrical, and impact performance. ATFI has developed an oxide ceramic matrix composite (CMC) which has demonstrated required electrical, thermal and structural performance. This proposal will focus on improved impact performance, as well as incorporating lower cost fiber reinforcements to keep costs down. ATFI will partner with materials research and design (MR & D) during the Phase I project to develop a second generation CMC material, as well as test impact resistance and electrical performance.
