Abstract : In a series of projects dating back to 1984, the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) has instigated research in advanced polymers including such goals as thermally oxidatively stable matrix resins for 700 F composite applications, rigid molecular composites, liquid crystal displays, and piezoelectric sensors. Volume I of the present report reviews the history and accomplishments of the DARPA High-Performance Polymer Program and presents highlights of the program review conducted by DARPA on 14-15 January 1992. Volume II, intended as a comprehensive reference source document, is an appendix which provides the program review agenda, a list of participants, and copies of selected presentation material. Correspondence from the presenters is included with the presentation material where appropriate.
