Abstract
The purpose of this project is to demonstrate the feasibility of applying an advanced, multifunctional coating system to canopy windows to increase their resistance to electromagnetic interference (EMI) and attack from low-power laser exposure. The coatings can be controlled during the deposition process to produce laser absorption profiles suitable for a wide variety of window requirements. In addition, the coating system will have an increased resistance to abrasion and scratching and will have an increased resistance to ballistic impact.
