Research Institution
Future high-speed missiles require aerodynamic infrared dome shapes that reduce drag and have greater ability to withstand aerothermal heating. This SBIR Phase I program will build on CeraNova"s efforts to produce an optically precise, ogive dome from polycrystalline alumina with a particular focus on deterministic methods and reduced cost for manufacturing as well as improving the efficiency for producing dome blanks. The objective is to demonstrate CeraNova"s capability for precise fabrication of aerodynamic domes in a manner that will serve as a basis for full dome production at a more economical cost.
