What are recent and ongoing commercial developments for high-temperature composites?

DSIAC was asked to report on ongoing developments for high-temperature composites, including the technology readiness levels (TRL's), expected use for the technologies, and expected performance characteristics. With the assistance from subject matter experts (SMEs) from Texas Research Institute / Austin and Johns Hopkins University Energetic Research Group (JHU ERG), DSIAC supplied the inquirer with a list of entities known to produce advanced high-temperature composite materials, contacts for additional information of U.S. government (USG) programs, and bibliographies and selected articles from the Joint Army-Navy-NASA-Air Force (JANNAF) Digital Online Collection (JDOC) and Propulsion Retrieval Information System (PIRS). In addition, the inquirer was provided a list of commercial entities, contacts for USG locations, a JDOC bibliography related to carbon cloth phenolic, a PIRS bibliography related to composite nozzle extensions, and a list of limited distribution documents related to the requested topic.

Inquiry Completion Date:
