This Statement of Work (SOW) defines the support required for a multi-task effort related to the design and fabrication of a ceramic resin matrix composite nosecone to fulfill Block IIB mission requirements. MSI will develop composite material component designs that fulfill the aerothermal and structural requirements established by Raytheon Missile Systems (RMS) and the SM3 Program Office, and will fabricate materials for evaluation/characterization and components for demonstration. MSI will be performing the aerothermal and structural analyses. In addition, scheduled review meetings will be held to present results, discuss status, assess technical progress, and report findings to the sponsor.
