Abstract
THERMOPLASTIC COMPOSITE MATERIALS SUCH AS GRAPHITE/PPS OFFER THE POTENTIAL TO REDUCE WEIGHT AND ENVIRONMENTAL CORROSION IN MILITARY BOMB RACKS. THIS PROGRAM IS DESIGNED TO APPLY THOSE BENEFITS TO THE MAU-12 AIRCRAFT BOMB EJECTOR RACK ASSEMBLY. AFTER A REVIEW OF AVAILABLE DATA, SEVERAL METAL COMPONENTS OF THE EXISTING BOMB RACK WILL BE SELECTED FOR COMPOSITE DESIGN. ONE OF THESE WILL BE BUILT AND TESTED TO DEMONSTRATE PRODUCEABILITY AND WEIGHT SAVINGS. A FINAL REPORT IS PROVIDED WHICH SUMMARIZES THIS EFFORT AND PROVIDES GUIDELINES FOR PHASE II DEVELOPMENT.
