Abstract : This report documents the final summation of a four-year in-house technical program on comprehensive materials development for organic, polymeric and carbonaceous composite and hybrid materials with combined structural loadbearing and other physical properties. The first three years of the four-year effort were comprised of tasks that were exclusively directed to fabrication, characterization and testing of multifunctional composite and hybrid materials for adaptive and shape-memory applications, and carbon fiber materials characterization and development. In the fourth and final year as the Composite and Hybrid Materials Exploratory Research Area (ERA), this bridge program incorporated portions of other areas such as thermal protective systems in extreme environments.
