Abstract : The purpose of this report is to make available the technical papers presented at the Fifteenth Conference on Aerospace Transparent Materials and Enclosures. Seventy-two technical papers are presented in nine sessions that address transparent material for enclosures, coatings for transparencies, transparency design, bird impact resistance, human factor and optics, operational problems, design criteria on transparent plastics, glasses and elastomers, aircraft-structural integration of windshields and canopies, computed design, testing techniques, and cost of ownership reduction. The papers contained herein have been reproduced directly from the original manuscripts. Airframes, Polycarbonate, Acrylic, Interlayers, Windshields, Canopies, Coatings, Transparent materials, Environmental resistance, Optical requirements, Computed design, Design criteria, Cost of ownership reduction, Transparency refurbishment, Frameless transparency, Transparent materials.
