Abstract
THIS PROJECT WILL RESEARCH MATERIALS AND DEVELOP A DESIGN AND CONCEPT FOR MAKING A ULTRA-STRONG, LIGHT WEIGHT SMALL CRATER REPAIR SYSTEM USING ULTRA-LIGHT, ULTRA-STRONG ADVANCED MATERIALS. THE END PRODUCT FOR PHASE I WILL BE A DETAILED DESIGN AND ANALYSIS FOR THE SYSTEM. THE ADVANCED MATERIAL SYSTEM WILL BE DESIGNED TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF A NUMBER OF SIGNIFICANT ADVANCES IN MATERIALS AND PROPRIETARY TECHNOLOGY IN MANUFACTURING DEVELOPED BY ADVANCED COMPOSITE TECHNOLOGY, INC. (ACT). ACT HAS DEVELOPED TWO TECHNOLOGIES SIGNIFICANT FOR THIS PROJECT. THE FIRST TECHNOLOGY IS TO LAY WET LAMINATE FIBERS AT COMMERCIAL SPEEDS WHILE PRODUCING A SMOOTH PRODUCT WITH LOW VOID CONTENT AT PRECISE ANGLES. THE SECOND TECHNOLOGY IS THE ABILITY TO LAY COMPLEX GEOMETRIC PARTS USING ROBOTICS. THE ABILITY TO MANUFACTURE AT COMMERCIAL SPEEDS USING NON PRE-PREG MATERIALS ALLOWS FOR TAILORING A MATRIX USING DIFFERENT FIBERS WITHIN THE BUNDLE AND OFFERS POTENTIALLY MAJOR REDUCTIONS IN COSTS.
