Research Institution
Understanding that saving weight without sacrificing performance on a vehicle is important, the objective of this program is to continue to demonstrate advanced lightweight materials that can have multi-functional capability and be discretely made into parts for DLA. Many applications will have specific requirements of high thermal conductivity, low thermal conductivity, radiation resistance, Modulus, tensile strength, ductility, and machinability, to name a few. This Phase I program is designed to achieve the final part success without sacrificing performance and reducing overall costs for potential DLA program components. Specific data for the various compositions of each engineered system will be generated and compared to current missile and aircraft requirements under the Phase I. Both coupon level and component testing and characterization will occur in Phase I. APS has assembled an expert team in the materials and characterization fields and has been provided overwhelming support to achieve a successful Phase I. The Phase II program will further define replacement parts and additional requirements for these unique materials.
