Abstract

In our Phase I program, JEM and ASU will demonstrate a low cost manufacturing process to achieve the full theoretical hesitivity of a magnetic film that would enable greater effective hesitivity laminate. In Phase II we will develop a viable continuous process for two such materials to achieve light weight, low cost, and improved radiation efficiency; and we will seek to productize this process to facilitate acquisition of these materials by various Navy PMAs.
