Abstract

ABSTRACT:Minnesota Wire proposes to research and develop lightweight aerospace electrical conductors for electrical cables utilizing CNT, conductive metal coatings, and with applicable processes for chemically and mechanically fabricating these components. Substitution of legacy metals with these composite conductors will reduce weight and possibly reduce failure related to exposure, stress, strain, and vibration. During Phase I, we will prove feasibility of this approachBENEFIT:The proposed technology was application in the military as well as civilian aerospace applications
