Abstract

In this SBIR Phase I program teaming with the primary ABL system integrator, Advanced Powder Solutions will develop a low cost light weight, high strength, high temperature resistant, iodine, chlorine, helium, ammonia, caustic compatible corrosion resistant composite material. For replacement of current heavier systems, the Phase I program will involve with the fabrication and testing of systems of direct interest to ABL use,using this innovative light weight composite material. Phase II will continue the characterization of these corrosion resistant materials and will fabricate more specific components for the ABL system.
