Abstract

M Cubed has developed three key processes (PRIMEX, DIMOX and reaction bonding) for manufacturing advanced materials components. The processes have been used to make a variety of components for commercial and military systems making them lighter, stiffer, highly functional and resistant to many threats. In the Phase I program, M Cubed demonstrated the feasibility of a revolutionary modification to these manufacturing processes to make the products made by these technologies further more cost effective for commercial and military applications. In the proposed Phase II Program, the technology will be further refined and scaled up; prototype components of MDA interest will be designed, manufactured and characterized; and the technology will be brought to a commercialization-ready stage. M Cubed's current volume manufacturing infrastructure will allow rapid technology deployment in military and commercial markets.
