The APS program utilizes its several years experience and existing materials to provide replacements for Beryllium based materials (both Albemet and Beryllium). Significant design and coupon level testing will be f=performed in Phase I to enable potential insertion of new and advanced materials into the F-35 program for Beryllium based materials replacement. APS has assembled a world class team to aid in this goal.
