Abstract

ABSTRACT: Lightweight structural composite materials that provide exceptional shielding and hardening performance across a broad range of the electromagnetic spectrum will be demonstrated and developed. BENEFIT: Currently, the electromagnetic hardening requirements are met by the use of metals or by radiation hardening of components. The successful implementation of the proposed technology will immediately save significant weight and will eventually reduce manufacturing and materials costs. Furthermore, protection will now be provided at the enclosure level, reducing costly component hardening requirements.
