Abstract
The objective will be to develop and evaluate a lightweight, high performance 3D fabric reinforced polymer system that will be used to engineer a reusable forward closure system. The polyurethane resin matrix will provide protection from marine environments and not produce load force on the payload. The system will be capable of reuse and be easily repaired in the event of damage. UDC will develop designs and fabrication methods to provide hydrostatic resistance, water resistance, marine stability, strength, abrasion resistance, and rapid repair capabilities. A report with results and conclusions will be submitted at the end of the Phase I program.
